I am a genuine dog lover and through my very varied lifetime I have owned a great amount of dogs of many breeds, But our little dog Rozzie is by far the most perceptive and with an ability to carry out what ever we tell her. She is like a child to Norma and me and we love her as such.
I hope you enjoy her poem.
Years ago when I was young,
In the town where I came from,
A good friend gave Mum a little dog,
A cross between a mini Foxy and a Pom.
She was such a lovely little dog
And smart as smart can be,
She chased foxes from their dens
And possums up their tree.
Fifty years have passed since then
So I thought I’d get another dog the same,
After three months watching trading post,
At last on the right advert I came.
One was advertised down at Ardeer
And the story goes as follows,
I went down and bought the pup
For the sum of one hundred dollars.
It’s the best hundred dollars I ever spent
And the main reason is because,
She’s smart as any dog can be
And for a name we called her Rozz.
Recently she proved her worth
With the tenacity of Mrs. Thatcher,
She sprang upon an escaping rat
And became a dedicated rat catcher.
She is so extremely quick to learn
When you see her attributes unfurled,
She can count and play and say good day
And we wouldn’t swap her for the world.
