Wife’s Almost Dream Dog (limerick)

Updated on February 14, 2014

My wife always wanted Great Dane

A dog she had dreamed to attain

But price to maintain

Would pocketbook drain

So I bought a plain mutt from Maine

      I love the limerick and the photo! The dog is beautiful. Great Danes and mutts can both make great pets.

      I suppose that is how my wife feels about me ;-)

      Loved the limerick, and I love mutts, not necessarily from Maine, although that would be fine too. Have a great day and weekend, Martin.
