A Puppy named 'Pig' N A Puddle

this bit of fun was the result of a clip on the internet where this adoreable french-bull puppy refused the urging of his person to step through a wee-little puddle to get up on the curb.

Just a regular curbside puddle,
It really wasn't that big.
But it had the look of an ocean,
To a sweet little puppy named 'Pig.'

"Your paws might touch the water,
No chances that you will drown."
Pig looked at his master- all crazy,
And was frozen like ice to the ground.

"It's only a wee-bit of a puddle,
You'll easily make the grade."
But Pig wasn't ready to listen,
He stood there and was very afraid.

On a leash Pig's brand new owner,
Tried in vain to nicely persuade.
But Pig just wouldn't listen,
To pleas that his new person made.

Again -"it's only a little puddle,
You really won't get very wet.
You could see Pig was thinking,
"Wets wet! And I'm not ready yet."

"But the water is only a trickle,
If you try you'll see you can wade."
No matter all the sweet talking,
That pup just couldn't be swayed.

The pup felt a tug on the leash,
The water was coming too near.
So Pig started his squealing,
And squealing was all you could hear.

Discouraged -his person relented,
And lifted the scaredy-cat Pup.
He bypassed the wee little puddle,
And lost, by picking Pig up.

I wanted the end to be funny,
With a moral to find I could spin.
Yep, a guy with a pup he'd name 'Pig,'
Has a pup that is smarter than him.

Really funny! I have two puddles right now on my driveway I've got to wash off because it was raining and she wouldn't go. Maybe that puddle wasn't so innocent after all!

Thanks Jan- Like 'Pig" and his misgivings I've hesitated to put my toe into the public puddle of poetry until now. Just sorry I waited so long but glad I found poetry soup. The comments like yours have led me to authors work and the ability to get a list of Fav's. You top the list. lol Maggi
