Pets .jpg


By Josie Whitehead


What sort of pets do you like best:
The active ones or those who rest?
    The little ones or larger ones,
    The timid ones or daring ones?

What sort of pet do you prefer -
The one who barks or those who purr?
     The fluffy ones or scruffy ones?
     The lazy ones or crazy ones?
I like the one who loves me most,
Who’s always there to share my toast:
    The waggy one, the shaggy one,
     The ‘take-me-for-a-walkie’ one.
