I was just browsing through Caldecacre's website - dalmatian breeder- when I saw this poem their 10 year old son had written - thought it was very good and wanted to share it.
O to live with a Dalmatian, how much fun,
O to watch him run and run ... and run,
O to see him playing in the sun,
O the trouble he gets in ... and then some!
O the chewed corners in every room,
O I remember when new teeth loomed!
O nothing was safe - old or new,
O when he wanted, he would chew ... and chew!!
O he is older now and still a clown,
O nothing seems to get him down,
O he's always smiling, never a frown,
O he's just great fun to be around.
O look at his coat and how striking he is,
O his lovely dark spots that no-one could miss,
O for a whiter coat, he could not wish.
O such melting eyes, full of promise.
O and whilst I write about all these 'O' s,
I must stress the spelling, I suppose,
Dals are crammed with character, but I must mention..
There are 'A' s but no 'O' s in a DalmatiAn!!
