My Favourite Dog
by Caragh Dawn Murphy
He's faster than a cheetah, stronger than an ox, watch out silly cat with funny polka dots!
Tigers have beautiful stripes it's true but, Zippy you know, they look much better on you!
He's wiser than a owl, more cunning than a fox, he's much better than people because he doesn't get chicken pox.
He's happier than a lark, springer than a spring, when he's not busy racing, Zippy's doing tricks and other things.
Prouder than a peacock, braver than a lion,
watch out king of the jungle there's a new king, and I'm not lying.
More cuddly than a lamb and warmer than a blanket
that's my Zippy and of all dogs he's my favourite pet!
