Dr Seuss Day (It's the 2nd here.)

Today we'd like to Honour.....









One of HER favourite children's authors, with a Seuss-like poem.


If I Were A Scottie...

If I were a scottie
I'd be more aloof,
I wouldn't be snuggly
And that's the troof.



If I were a scottie,
I'd have long, long furs
And after our walkies 
it'd be full of burrs.

 
If I were a scottie
I would be DOOMED,
To brushings and clippings
When I was groomed.


I'm glad I'm NOT a scottie
And I have short hair
Because it is easy
It's more wash 'n' wear.
So being a Spotty 
Is good enough for me,
Being a Spotty 
Is PERFECT, you see!
