Some dogs are scary.
You have to be wary.

Some dogs are fat.
They could squash you flat.

Some dogs are tiny
and yappy and whiny.

Some dogs are old
and can’t do what they’re told.

Some dogs are jumpy.
They make me feel grumpy.

Some dogs are fast.
I just watch them run past.

Some dogs are busy
and rush round till they’re dizzy.

But my dog is great.
She’s my very best mate.

    • Thank you Dakota. It’s not actually my dog (I don’t have one) but I like to imagine what my dog would be like if I had one. Or maybe I’m just pretending to be someone who has a dog.
