My Mumma is very sweet, well most of the time She takes me for walks in the early daytime There are days she decides to not take me out I am not sure why as I will noisily pant and pout Yippee! She is getting ready; I know we are going today I see her grab my collar, leash and my shirt striped grey Geez, I tell her I am tired of having to wear that stupid collar But she tells me I look handsome, it matches my shirt color I am getting irritated, panting as she takes a few trips upstairs I ask what she is doing, as I bark at the bottom of the stairs Yahoo, here we go, walking with my head up proudly smiling As I walk, my tail is wagging as my Mumma is guiding I stop and sniff, ahh what a relief as I pee on the ground Sniffing at new places to explore with wild scents around Mumma pulls me back again, she can be such a bore! She waits as I squat, as I am doing my duties some more Yes! We are headed towards the historical park I pull more and whimper, I can’t wait to leave my mark I am so happy, my tail wags as I bark and croon Oh no, we are home again, our walks always end too soon! 6/5/22 Contest: Personification - Pets Talking Poetry Contest Sponsor: Constance La France

this is a wonderful personification of the dog loving his walk. So nice, tania. Our Snickers, who recently died, just loved his walks!!

Ziggy is one lucky dog to have such a caring Mumma, A lovely pic Tania, I see you managed to overcome the gremlins re your pic. Unknowingly I entered a contest with a limerick. Admin asked has anyone got access to your computer or passwords, I gave up. Tom

Ziggy, your Mumma has lots of things to do. Please be patient with her and I bet you'll be getting more treats. That's a good boy. P.S. I think you DO look handsome in your striped shirt! Tania, I love your new avatar.
