TITLE: Two Little Puppies
By Terri Schroeder


Two Little Puppies

Two little puppies, both little males.
Two little puppies with curly tails.
Two little puppies, looked exactly alike.
Two little puppies, soft, furry and white.

Two little puppies, which one should I take?

One little puppy, wiggled and wagged;
One little puppy, his countenance sagged.
One little puppy licked my face and was glad;
One little puppy hid his eyes and was sad.

Two little puppies, a decision to make.

One little puppy wanted to play;
One little puppy just wanted to lay.
One little puppy, the pick of the litter;
One little puppy, his health could be better.

Two little puppies, which one shall I take?

One little puppy, friendly black eyes;
One little puppy, I'm frightened, he cries.
One little puppy, robust and strong;
One little puppy, there's something wrong.

Two little puppies, a decision I make.

One little puppy came home that day.
One little puppy, he wanted to play.
One little puppy was left behind;
One little puppy, put out of my mind.

Two little puppies, I picked the best.

One little puppy, eyes not sad.
One little puppy, his tail was glad.
One little puppy, it was meant to be.
One little puppy, God send him to me.

Two little puppies, I made the right choice.

My little puppy, you need extra care;
For you, little puppy, I'll always be there.
My little puppy lived twelve happy years;
But for this puppy, I shed many tears.

My sweet little puppy, there are no regrets.

One little puppy, I love you so.
One little puppy, I can't let you go.
One little puppy, don't give up the fight.
For you, little puppy, I'll pray through the night.

My sweet little puppy, how will I know?

One little puppy, my very best friend.
One little puppy was true to the end.
One little puppy, tail wagged one last time.
One little puppy, his eyes gave the sign.

My sweet little puppy, I made the best choice.

Oh, so sweet and sad. I like your unique take on this week's challenge. Your flow and rhythm were good. If you have a local human society, you might want to submit this for their newsletter (if they have one)...lots of puppy lovers would enjoy reading it.

Awww. How sad. I'm sorry for the loss of your pet. :( I like the poem, though. :)

Yes, one immediately thinks of body language in terms of the human body. So, this is definitely an "out of the box" approach to the topic.

Sorry about your puppy. I liked your poem. Could see the puppy wagging his happy tail.

I knew this was going to hurt before I read it, but it still got me. I am sure it was therapeutic writing it.

A lovely, sweet and cute poem. Keep writing (and poems!).

Part of me was hoping you'd take both puppies but at the very least I wanted you to pick the right one. This is a sweet poem. Sometimes the one that might be the cutest might not be the right one.

So sweet! Makes me miss all the pets I've lost through the years. I love the unique take on the topic.
