close your eyes
breathe deep
relax your mind

Puppy, Puppy, Little Dog*

*To the tune of "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star"

Puppy, puppy, little dog,
deeply sleeping like a log.
Sprawled upon your pillow flat,
like a sausage round and fat.
Puppy, puppy, little dog,
deeply sleeping like a log.

Fred's head ached and his throat was red.
He was told to stay in bed.
Fred did his best
to calmly rest,
but Fred fled and strep throat spread.

growly throat

bobbed-tail saunter
ears perked taunter

fluid fence walker
backyard stalker
