My Puppy Club_Dog

It is my first Sunday

In my new home

I open my eyes,

My human still sleeps.

~

I’m hoping for some bacon smell,

For the kettle to hum.

No flavor coming up,

No noises at all.

~

The house is quiet,

What could be the matter?

Surely IS the right time

For food on the table?

~

My human pup snores,

Sounds just like a baby kettle.

I lick her ear;

She doesn’t budge.

~

I jump off the bed,

I am on a mission.

To wake everyone

Before it’s too late.

~

I grab at her blanket;

It is a pup’s play

To pull it off the bed

And onto the floor.

~

The newly adopted puppy

~

But this puppy is small

And the blanket is heavy.

I try my best

And head for the door.

~

I listen for noises:

Where is Mom’s room?

That is the only room

I haven’t been into.

~

“No puppies in here.”

I remember the rule.

But surely for emergency

We can bend it a bit?

~

The door is closed

But I push with my nose.

I push with my paws,

I push with all my might.

~

I’ve got to get it open.

I’ve got to get inside.

They have to wake up,

It’s well past their time.

~

I can’t open the door.

It’s too heavy for me.

My paws slide off,

I even hurt my snout.

~

The newly adopted puppy

~

I whimper, I cry.

As quietly as can be.

Surely they will hear me,

Open for me?

~

A thump at the door!

Someone’s outside!

I’ve got to protect them!

Stand up for my pack!

~

I run down the stairs.

It was a big mistake;

My paws slide,

My bum gets ahead.

~

Thump! My bottom hits the floor

Then my head hits the carpet.

I need a second

To regain my balance.

~

No time to spare,

Someone’s at the door!

I’ve got to protect my family,

I’m heading ahead.

~

I’ll bark and I’ll fight.

I’ll tear them apart!

This is my home!

It’s under my guard!

~

The newly adopted puppy

~

Silence.

Whoever it was,

It got scared.

I am sure.

~

Such a vicious pup

Got them on the run!

They got so scared,

Didn’t even come inside.

~

They left just one thing,

Small item behind.

A paper! I’ll show them!

I grab it right away.

~

I’ll fight and I’ll bite

And if they dare come back,

They’ll see what’s waiting for them.

And be scared of me!

~

Good, now the paper is gone.

What did Father said?

Garbage belongs with garbage.

I’ll clean up in a sec.

~

Such a big mess

And such a small pup.

I’ll do my best,

Let me find the trash.

~

It’s easy to spot it,

My nose takes me straight.

There’s the trash can,

Hidden in the darkest place.

~

Life through the eyes of a newly adopted puppy
Life through the eyes of a newly adopted puppy

~

Sooo big,

Me, so short.

But I’ve got to clean

The shreds from the floor.

~

I jumped. It fell.

BUMP!

Its lid came off.

More trash rolled onto the floor.

~

Footsteps upstairs! Coming down the stairs!

I’ve got to hide,

But where? Where?

Sorry about the mess!

~

I had to protect…
