Today’s Prompt

Look at me so pretty and proud

painted up like a Valentines clown.

My tiny owners, one, two and three,

felt the need to decorate me.

Why do they fuss why do they yell?

Adults their words do not impel,

my tiny owners to do their bidding

Their tone of voice so forbidding.

But that was then and this is now

I am their pet not yours anyhow.

So if they want to paint my face,

dress me up or run a race.

Its all ok alright with me,

it makes them happy can’t you see?

Let them paint me like a clown,

so their frowns turn upside down.

  3. Love this Ami.
    The woman who owned the dog kennels dyed on of her show dogs pink to match the colour of the outfit the girl showing him was wearing. I don’t think he was impressed though…………….

    1. Thank you Di, glad you enjoyed it. If she used food coloring, it wouldn’t be harmful to the dog but any other dye would be very harmful to him. I bet the judges weren’t impressed either!


      1. I think she did, and dyed another couple of her dogs purple and blue, poor things.
