A description of rhymed verse of what makes our puppy special and notable.


Our puppy is a Havanese--
A lively black and white one.
She walks on her hind legs with ease
And shakes hands with the right one.

Should I arrive alone at night
Assuming no one’s there,
She rises up to two-leg height
And greets me on the stair.

The upstairs light I turn to on,
This Queen of Hearts canine
Starts scratching till an itch is gone
By rolling on her spine.

She bites her teddy by the neck
And hurls it o’er her shoulder
To warn me what I can expect
From her when she grows older.

I love you dog, I swear I do.
Although you bark and snuffle. Oh!
You’re faster than a kangaroo
And eat less than a buffalo.
