Puppy With A Pizza
My puppy makes pizza.
He bakes every day
In a chef hat and apron
He's quite the gourmet.
He’ll roll out some dough
and he’ll give it a toss,
then spread on a generous
topping of sauce.
He’ll heap it with cheese
and mountains of meat,
but, still, it’s not something
you’d probably eat.
For though he makes pizza
with obvious flair,
it all ends up covered
with slobber and hair.
Puppy As A Chef

My dog likes to disco
on TikTok for fun.
He’d rather start dancing
then go for a run.
My dog likes to wiggle
and jiggle and jump.
He bobbles his noggin
and wriggles his rump.
And when he’s done dancing,
this doggy of mine
will pick up his cell phone
and post it online.
I saw two people heading off for a walk
with 99 dogs in a pack.
So, I asked them why they had so many dogs,
and they thought for a while and said back,
“We’ve tried having different numbers of dogs:
from a lot to hardly any.
The lesson we’ve learned is 98’s not enough
but 100 dogs is too many.”
My neighbour’s dog is purple.
Its eyes are large and green.
Its tail is almost endless,
The longest I have seen.
My neighbour's dog is quiet.
It does not bark one bit.
But when my neighbour's dog is near,
I feel afraid of it!
My neighbour's dog looks nasty.
It has a wicked smile.
Before my neighbour painted it,
It was a crocodile!
