Annabelle's Poem

Out for a walk
Just Maddie and me
I tossed out a bet
She'd be first one to pee
Maddie marched on
all happy and smug
She only stopped once
to just sniff a bug
I waited and watched
and walked on quite proud
when all of a sudden
Mom said something out loud
"We have to go home"
she said to our dad
"I've gotta go fast
and I've gotta go bad"
How could Mom do this
I barked loud and clear
It just wasn't fair
and our house wasn't near
So needless to say
I lost the big bet
But Mom got home
Before she got wet!

Maddie's Poem

Annabelle's bark
is worse than her bite
Yep she lost her bet
and there wasn't a fight

She didn't try hard
to continue our stroll
cause when we got home
she spotted a hole
Belle knew that to dig
was far better yet
than what she could win
from her ridiculous bet!

And the hole that she dug
was behind a fine stone
and I knew it was best
to just leave her alone.

Wow! And I thought Mickey was talented because she wrote a Thanksgiving blog. I wonder if she's a closet poet...

Oh Maddie and Annabelle,
How lucky we are!
Yes, we are the ones,
who CELEBRATE your 100th post!
Your POETRY is tuned to perfection. I say!
Your pitures are out of this world!
And even though
the bet wasn't won
it sounded to me
like a whole lot of fun!
