‘Twas the 6th of January, one more reason to feast,
‘Twas not only Little Christmas, but the birthday of our beast.

Five years ago, she’d been placed here on earth
Apparently, with intentions
of spreading merriment and mirth.

For why else would a dog be so quirky and hell-bent

As to mimic a cleaning product

An astronomer

And table ornament?

table lu
Answering to names like Goober,

Crazy Lu
but mostly Lucy,

the hound is also an artist,
with a series titled, 


     ‘UNITY’                                ‘CARROT PENDULUM’             ‘CAUGHT BY A SPIDER’

Reinforcing the term, “Dog is Mr. Man’s best friend,”
Lu serves as an armrest

a business partner,

Lu and Mr. Man
And on her prowess we depend,


especially when she’s stalking a strawberry thief

guard dog

But, oh,
wait a minute…
It’s her!
Good Grief!


 And sometimes when we’re not looking
she turns into a teacher, too


Lola on table
satisfying the adage,
Monkey Puppy see.
Monkey Puppy do.

And so my Dear Reader, thank you once again
for putting up with my ‘Twas
up to the bitter end.

Happy Birthday Lucy

  1. Ah Lucy, you are a comedian. You are lucky you were chosen by the Weidners!


  2. That was awesome! From one Capricorn to another, Happy Birthday Lucy :-).


  3. Vic says:

    Another great rhyme! I only wish the video were longer. You could have added the video of her on the table.


  4. No, it was Lucy on the table…I thought it might be too much. Maybe I’ll add it anyway. Thanks for thinking of it. Hugs!

    It looks like a sense of humour runs in the family. Lucy’s a howl!


  6. Thank you for following and opening the door to your world. Eddie


  7. Oh where to start!! I bow down to you for every T’was poem there ever is, err was! Absolutely Phenomenal! And You have a Lola too? Did I know this? I adore the videos! What a scream. And putting the one to the Peanuts music, genius. Btw, I love your decor!


    • Many thanks Stephanie, but no bowing allowed, otherwise we’ll be bumping heads all day long. Lola is my oldest son’s dog visiting over the holidays and my youngest filmed and put the music to the video. I can only take credit for his birth. xo too!
