"Sweet Misery" (Portrait of Morgan)
"Sweet Misery"

,This is of my youngest terrier, Morgan (Herve's birthday present to me, two years ago...and possibly the smartest and sweetest dog I've had in all these long years). And, yes, this picture was done (as all of my pictures are done) with a specific, good friend in mind. (SECRET HINT: Young Morgan LOVES my friend, Bob).
 
Go to Hoyt Axton's song (and IGNORE the actual, somewhat-horrifying John Denver video...minimalize the screen, please):

Heard you had some trouble
Thought I'd try to help you
In my time I've had a little trouble too
If you let it get you
Down you know I'll bet you
It will get you down and walk around on you

Sweet misery
She loves her company
She's in a crowd when she is all alone
She doesn't care.. follows you everywhere
She is most happy when she makes you moan

My dog had some puppies
Would you like to have one?
He will be your friend and he will lick your face
He will never cheat you
He won't try to beat you
Help you be a winner in the human race

Sweet misery
She loves her company
She's in a crowd when she is all alone
She doesn't care, follows you everywhere
She is most happy when she makes you moan

Heard you're feelin' better
Glad you found some happy
In my time I've had a little happy too
If you let it get you
Up you know I'll bet you
It will get you up and keep you smilin' through

Sweet misery
Don't need your company
She's in a crowd when she is all alone
She doesn't care follow you everywhere
She is most happy when she makes you moan
