Ode to a Blue Blanky -- By Persephone

Some dogs have rhinestone collars
That cost lots of dollars,
Some poodles have oodles
Of toys and things chewable.

I have something better
That will last me forever,
A true friend for days
That bring rain or sun's rays.

I've my Mommy to thank
For my wondrous blue blank-y,
It keeps me warm when it's chilly
And secure when life's silly.

It has a soft blue sky
With green stars to sleep by,
So comfy for my head
When Mom goes to bed.

On days that are dreary
When my mood is less cheery,
I contemplate things that are scarey and feary...

But my blue blanky clings
To my cheeks and it sings
Of sweet dreams and skunk chases,
And Buster's funny faces!

You are also a fine poet in your own right, but then again, you have great inspiriation!

Goober love,

Like Stanely I don't think I've ever seen your eyes or eye in this case.
You have a wonderful relationship with your blankie. You're very lucky.

Hugs and tail wags

What an inspired poem! Do you know Linus from the comic strip Peanuts? His blanky is blue and he cannot be without it. But he never wrote such a bluetiful hymn to it.

As for chasing alligators -- we don't want to dampen your fun, but it is more likely that the alligators would chase us dogs. They deserve to be respected, like all creatures of this world, and have the right habitat; but they are not our friends. We would be barely a mouthful.
