Pearl the Puppy

Pearl the Puppy shivered and shook.
She ran and she hid in the tiniest nook.
The squeals and shrieks of the littlest child,
The hugs and the kisses of the eldest, so mild.
Don’t they know I am lonely and scared
She gritted her teeth, and her nostrils flared.
Don’t they know I am frightened and cold?
All I really want is for someone to hold me,
wrap me in a blanket, sing me a song,
feed me some food and not drag me along.

I want a warm bed, and a few little toys
and in a few days, I will make lots of noise.
Play with me softly, don’t pull me too hard
I love being outside, chasing a ball in the yard.

I’m only a puppy, just a few weeks old.
I piddle and poop, but don’t think I’m bold.
I eat all day long, because my tummy is small
and if you want to play with me just throw me a ball.

So let’s be best friends, because you are small too
and just think in a few weeks we will be stuck together like glue.
I am here as your playmate, you’re all I’ve got
I know that you’re learning and I love you a lot!

After much nagging from my terrible two, I wrote this teeny tiny story about their new puppy. Jack's birthday is in a few weeks, so I found a local artist named Moira Kelly to do a few drawings for me, and I think it will make a nice little birthday present!

That is all the WiseWords I have for today,

Hello, I found your blog via the EXPAT Blogs homepage (I'm always curious to know how people find me). My family is planning to move from Australia to Ireland later this year, just on a whim, so I am reading a lot of Irish blogs to learn what I can about Ireland - yours looks like a beautiful part of the country. Nice to meet you!
