I think some dogs are scary
and because of this I’m wary
of the many dogs I often chance to meet.
Those dogs who are all jumpy
really make me feel quite grumpy
as they tend to leap and knock me off my feet.
And dogs who are so tiny
but are also loud and whiny
make my head hurt when they yip and yelp and yap.
While, dogs who are all busy
running round me till I’m dizzy
make me wish that they would all just take a nap.
Don’t think that I’m uncaring
or I’m scared and never daring
just because I’ve met some dogs who are not nice.
There’s a dog who I adore
who is my dearest friend, and more,
and I wouldn’t part with her for any price!
