Chad is a stud-for-hire but after several failed tries
I stopped offering his services to ladies-in-heat
I accepted the fact that he will never be a father, ever!
Until his original owner asked me three months ago to “borrow” him
During those times, Chad would come home, dead-tired
I just prodded him to continue trying
I never had an inkling that I would get that news
Chad’s partner delivered four healthy puppies
My jaw dropped literally and I couldn’t believe it!
Chad has come full-circle and is now a DAD!
The Dud is now a Dad!
Yesterday, I borrowed the puppies
I wanted Chad to meet his children
I first saw the puppies when they were a week-old
They were not a pretty sight, believe you me
So you could just imagine how pleasantly surprised I was
This time, they were so cute and cuddly
These are all my grandchildren!
As I was clicking away with my camera
Chad’s reaction was guarded
He smelled them, poked them with his nose
But he never got chummy with the puppies
One thing I noticed though was that he was like securing the perimeter
Chad was making sure that his children are safe
Somehow I felt a connection between Chad and the puppies
He sure was proud of his accomplishment
But I am an even prouder father
My son, Chad, has proven, to all and sundry, that he’s a real man
He wins this one, fair and square
I’m excited to get my share of the puppies
The rule of thumb is that I get to pick my choice
This one’s my choice
The only rose among the thorns
I hope I get her soon
Chad would like that too.
