our new pup, Dug
Cute wee fella Joe. I don’t know if you have seen this poem about about wee glasgow child pestering the parent about a new pet. Called appropriately “A Dug, A Dug”. (Translations available on request)
A Dug a Dug
Hey, Daddy, wid ye get us a dug ?
A big broon alsation ur a wee white pug ?
Ur a skinny wee terrier, ur a big fat collie?
Aw, daddy,get us a dug. Will yi ?
Whit! An’ whose dug’ll it be when it durties the flerr,
An’ wets the carpet and messes the sterr?
Its me ur yer mammy’ll be tane furra mug.
Away oot’n play. Yer no getting a dug.
But daddy thur gi’en them away
Down therr at the RSPCA.
Yu’ll get wan fur nothin, so ye will.
Aw. Daddy, get us a dug, Will ye?
Dji hear um? Oan aboot dugs again?
Ah think that yins goat dugs’n the brain.
Ah know whit yu’ll get: a skite oan the lug
If ah hear ony merr aboot this bloomin dug.
Aw, Daddy, it widny be dear tae keep
An’ah’d make it a basket fur it tae sleep.
An’ah’d take it fur runs away ower the hull.
Aw, Daddy, get us a dug. Will ye?
A doan’t think thurs ever been embdy like you:
Yi could wheedle the twist oot a flamin’ corkscrew.
Noo! Get doon aff my neck. Gies nane a yur hugs.
Aw right. THAT’S ANUFF. Ah’ll get yi a dug.
Aw Daddy. A dug. A dug.
Named after Dug the talking dog from Disney’s Pixar UP?
Bob, that was a tough read (for us proper english speakin’ merican folks) but enjoyable. Shachihoko, my daughter and son named her (yes her) after Dug in the movie (love that movie!)
Aha Joe. Wasn’t it George Bernard Shaw who said “England (should have said Britain) and America are two countries separated by a common language”
