A Doggy Limer-lick for You

March 2011 014
Lookin’ for the Leprechauns!

Mama’s been dressing us in green for a few weeks now.   We started the day with green doggy treats, but I thought it would be fun to pen our own little blessing for you, in the Irish tradition.

It’s not technically a limerick, but for my (Gretchen Greer) first attempt at poetry, I’m kinda’ pleased with myself!

Bless those who love their pets,

May they never have to hedge their bets.

May they have more sunshine than rain,

May they know more joy than pain.

Bring them more laughter than tears

And grant us time together to span many years.

Arrrooo we're Irish too!


Be sure to visit Mama’s blog too.  She kept the best photo of the bunch for herself!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day and dogs on thursday!


PS – Sis’s food has been ordered for a week now, but hasn’t shown up yet.  It’s getting to be a dire situation.  Hope Mama knows how to make rabbit stew.
