The Canine Collection of Poems


I am a little terrier dog
As feisty as can be.
So don't you come in to my yard
And don't you mess with me!

I know my rights, I have my ways,
I'm always on the go
(Not like some dogs I could mention
Who are lazy, fat and slow).

Devoted to my owners
And of that there is no doubt,
But strangers? I may let them in -
But I won't let them out!

I'm a cocky little terrier dog
As you can plainly see,
But if you want a loving friend...that's me!
