My Dog Eats Altoids
Everything excites my little dog.
Whether it be a drive in the car
Or sleeping like a log.
B-A-T-H makes her run and hide
But once she’s shiny and clean
She prances around with poodle pride.
Black and white with snowy boots
She makes for a perfect mix
Of Pekingese and Poodle roots.
Smart with her own little charm.
She serves as my wake up alarm
She’s an instigator with other dogs
But offers a kiss
To right all her wrongs.
She eats more than a big black bear.
And runs to the dinner table
Where she has her own chair.
Dog food is her last resort.
She much prefers French Fries, Chicken,
And an Altoid for dessert.
“Bye-bye” are her favorite words to hear
And from her spot on my lap
She “helps” me steer.
Nikki is my very best friend.
She knows more words
Than any dog ought to comprehend.
