My fellow Americans, is it right what I heard?
A day for the Groundhog, it’s almost absurd.
A somnolent rodent barely awake from the freeze,
May turn in his tracks to catch some more ZZZ’s?
His actions predict the weather and you’re enamored; despite…
A meteorologist never has to be right.
My Cypress co-workers scolded my cynical air;
Remember our core values, Compassion and Care.
Embrace optimism beyond a shadow of a doubt,
And name a day to celebrate — isn’t that what life’s about?!
There is time set aside for my distinguished breed.
Out of all working dogs, it’s an honor indeed.
How could I be bitter, what do other service dogs say…
That the first Monday in September is Labrador Day?
