Good Dog. by Elizabeth Clark
Once upon a time there was a good dog. name (sic)
She didn't chew the Mayor's pants or bark at
Miss Barrett the teacher and she always ate
up all her dinner and she never pulled at
One day she had puppies.
Her owners were very surprised.
When the puppies were older they got names.
One was called Barny, another was called Silky
and her sister was called Milky.
At first they could not see.
Then when they were older they could see a little bit
Silky was as soft as silk
Milky was the colour of milk.
Barny liked to sleep in the barn.
The puppies liked to play together but
after awhile they got into fights.
So their mother had to get them apart
So they obeyed her and played nicely.
