National Poetry Month – Day 8

Name that dog! by Peggy Archer

Happy puppies,
scrappy puppies,
puppies playing games.

Shaggy puppies,
waggy puppies
each one needs a name.

A stick-fetching,
ball catching,
name that you can call

a yip-yapping,
water-lapping
puppy, big or small.

Perky puppies,
peppy puppies –
none of them the same.

So jump into
the alphabet and
pick a puppy name!

From Name that Dog!: puppy poems from A to Z

For extra fun…try singing this poem to the tune of Jingle Bells! It works, promise!
