Phydeaux

He came into their yard one dreary day, 
Hoping that he there from the rain could stay.
They gazed at him standing there in his miserableness
And quickly realized that he would be more than a guest.

He couldn’t have been more than a few months old
Standing there timidly yet trying to be bold.
Friendliness he showed with wagging tail,
Convinced that in their favor he would prevail.

They gladly welcomed him into their home,
Wondering from where he had so carelessly roamed.
No average pup was this lovely pooch,
They couldn’t, therefore, name him “Hooch.”

They contemplated for more than an hour or two,
To reach a conclusion for a name that was new.
It couldn’t be “Rover” or simply “Fido”,
Because of his class, it must be Phydeaux.

    Thank you!! By the way, how do you read the ratings numbers?? Does the 10 mean that I placed 10th and that there was another 10th place finisher? Just curious. Jim
