This poem doesn’t follow a smooth pattern. May need some work…
Mom and Dad took little Sue to see the little pups.
They nibbled at her toes and hair, those silly little pups.
Sleek and clean, their breeder’s care, clear in every pup.
They danced and played and showed their best, those happy little pups.
“Pick Me! Pick Me!” They barked with glee, those funny little pups.
Mom had liked the little girl, with white upon her paws.
Dad, he liked the big boy pup with brown along his jaws.
Little Sue, she tried and tried to find the one she’d want.
She looked at every paw and tail, and hugged the little runt.
Yet, none of them, so clean, so sweet filled her full of want.
Finally, they said goodbye to all the little pups
Mom and Dad could not believe they had no little pup.
But Little Sue, she didn’t fret because she really knew
That loving one that steals your heart beats settling for two.
As they left she stared across, a stray stared at her, too.
“He stinks”, Mom said and Dad did too. “Look at that matte of fur”.
The dirt, they said would not come off. Of fleas they were so sure
But little Sue, she stopped their voice with just a little sigh.
“He’s hungry and in need of love. Just listen to his cry”.
“Pick me”, he said with begging eyes. “I need a girl to love.”
They took him home and cleaned him up, that homeless little pup.
They gave him food and lots of love, that silly little pup.
They made his bed, nice and warm, that happy little pup.
They gave him a home and a family to love, that lucky little pup.
And Little Sue, his life he owed, welcomed home her rescued pup.
