When Laila Smiles  

When Laila smiles, white wagging tail,
All around her smile too.
Her happiness comes rolling through.
Running, jumping,
Even when she humps a doll which she can pull onto the floor,
She is adorable.

Smile contagious, doggie-gorgeous,
Lively Laila, lovely smile, canine fine
Is most divine!

And when at night she goes to bed
There’s nothing more that need be said,
Except “Goodnight, 
You dog delight!”

  1. Although, in general, "Leila" comes from Semitic words for "night" or "dark" (and the name is often given to girls born during the night, signifying "daughter of the night"), in Nordic countries, it is derived from the Sami form of Helga ("holy").
