There once was a hunter named Frawley
Who lived in a shack, outside Raleigh.
His dog, funny but true,
Would only hunt honeydew.
The dog was a true melon collie
Ray Gridley has a possible diagnosis
Alas, rabbits do catch viral myxomatosis
Since Jan's is a famous banging bunny
Who stays far from field and ANY honey
Energizer Bunny will bang on till unconscious!
Monkey see....monkey do...
Monkey took a poo poo...
Monkey pooed on my arm..
on my shirt...icky warm...
Monkey poo rings my alarm!
Monkey monkey...look at you!
Get this off...it's from your wah-zoo!!
Eep! eep! eep! said the monkey!
Then he squeezed his nose...
'cause it smelled funky!
A hairy thing once roamed our streets
Chasing cats for sport and treats.
Till it roamed too far
And a dog catcher and car,
Grabbed Harry and chained his feets.

First customer gets a free beehive
With purchase ten bones or more
Food, drinks, desserts galore
Porcelain hitchhiker needs a ride
Digital life discourages thinking,
Laptops encourage time sinking,
Is indulging a pet,
For PC’s are pet squirrels chewing nuts who are linking.
There is a Pug dog named Jackson
and college football is his game,
with no time to spare
he's up in his chair,
to watch his favorite team Notre Dame
Rufus: Irish Rover Purebred and a Fortune 500 Pup ( As told by Rufus himself.)
Watch me snarl all the salesmen away,
ram the door, keep the mailmen at bay.
Each evening, I break
for a fresh T-bone steak.
The sun shines on my ass the WHOLE day.
There never was a better treat
Like smoked almonds and a beet.
Berry noodles potato fling
Lemon ketchup chicken wing,
So say busy furry feet.
These walls conceal an ugly war
Kitty litter raids my floor
This tidy home I'm sworn to keep
A rugged broom's a tiresome sweep
Three cats are such a chore
There was a young man from China
Who couldn't think of anything finer
Than to smoke cigarettes - play with his pets
Eat out at an all night diner
To the market grab a carrot
Sneak it home never share it.
This is what my spaniel does
Every Thursday just because,
His lady friend's a ferret.
There once was a very old, old dog
Who'd lay by the fire of cracklin' logs
Dreaming mighty dreams
Of years gone by schemes
As his legs moved chasing wild mean hogs
I have an old dog named Sweet Pea
More wily than sweet, you’d agree
Who runs the house?
Not me or my spouse
No, our dog, Sweet Pea, the queen bee
* For our little girl, Sweet Pea, after 15 years with us, she is a part of the family.
Left sock, Right sock where have you gone,
little skooter kitty, up before the dawn,
Now my day has started,
my socks have all but parted,
little skooter took em'
to make his bed upon.
"Keys Please?" by Francine Roberts
Annie, our Golden, is a member of the family
Just like a daughter, it's really uncanny
After going out upon our return
Our love's enthusiastically reaffirmed
Her excitement explodes, our dearest sweet Annie

A young robin my cat once befriended
Till one day the relationship ended
I came home to find
That my cat changed her mind
For from her mouth a feather extended
Written: by Tom Wright
I once had a Billy Goat, past tense,
That feeding made very little sense.
So I sold him of course,
And had little remorse,
For I couldn’t keep him in the fence
I don’t understand the world, or what it is giving
Should I open my eyes and be there and then living?
I asked my dog and as memory recalls
He kept gently but thoroughly licking his balls
A fellow got into a
Trying to teach his
dog some new tricks
His canine named
Refused to roll over
And seemed totally
blind to thrown
There once was a dog by name of Tiger
She belonged to Kendricks who acquired her
Doris brushed her teeth each week
With Jr.'s tooth brush so meek
When he learned, said, "Why?"..(She)I did not want mine dirtied sir..
In honor of Brian Strand....
Dogs are the most amazing creatures
If you pay attention, they're very good teachers
They show patience
They react to ovation
Man's friend to the end, yup, I'm a believer

Ran into the house in a hurry
my glasses fell off all was blurry
I lunged for the phone
my pet rat let out a groan
poor thing ran off in a scurry
This Martian was as mean as it gets
He ran out of Martian cigarettes
He landed his spaceship on earth,
At a highway rest stop near Perth,
and found plenty by trailing the pets.

Placed 3rd in "Out of This World Limerick contest"
Everything's about satisfying our personal pleasures
Creating our own little oasis with a bed of feathers
But sometime's thorns
Disrupt the norms
Instead of cats and dogs, our pets are heifers
