for my dog Maggie, aka The Moose

It’s a day to be lazy as a dog,
Independent as that hog
  sliding on the ice

I’m hotter than an otter,
Failing as a daughter
   but still being nice.

You may be drunk as a skunk
Skinning up the trunk
    of that tree once or twice

But me, I’m lucky as a duck
Running all amuck
    shouting cluck cluck cluck
    getting all unstuck
    looking for a . . .
       nah . . . I’m just looking for a truck.
