Puppy With A Pizza

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.

My Dog likes to Disco - by Kenn Nesbitt 

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.

99 dogs 

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 -By Jack Prelutsky

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!
