Two Dogs Sonnet

Two Dogs
It is a fact: two dogs are much more fun.
They roll together in the house and play.
Sometimes a ball's involved and then they run.
It happens almost every single day.
So is it work, just like my mother said?
More walks, more mess, yes more trips to the vet.
A search for sitters -- or stay home instead.
While this is all true, I have no regret.
They cuddle close and lick my happy face
They fill the house with laughs and so much joy.
They make my home-time fun at such a pace
That they are better than a perfect toy.
I did not know that this would be so true.
That's why I recommend two dogs to you.
