Kids Love Funny Dogs

She wouldn't win a beauty prize,
My funny little Muffin.
She wasn't very much for size,
But she could keep me huffin'.

We'd play a game of hide and seek.
I'd seek and she would run.
I'd be so tired I couldn't speak.
She'd still be having fun.

She watched him hide his pretty eggs
When the Easter Bunny came.
As the children ran to hunt in pairs,
She joined their happy game.

Their short legs were longer than
The short  ones  that she wore.
For each egg going in a sack,
She'd find a dozen more.

We tried to take them from her and
She'd look at us and grin.
Her mouth was faster than our hands
As another egg went in.

I've had dogs that were more faithful
And superior in size,
But at being glad and gleeful
Funny Muffin wins the prize.

Grandkids love to hear the story
Of how Muffin stole the eggs.
And of how funny she looked running on
Her little Dachshund legs.
