Dachshund

(This poem was inspired by a suggestion from my friend Bernie. Thanks, Bernie.)

“Excuse me, have you seen

A little dachshund, please?”

“God bless you!” “I’m sorry?”

“Didn’t you just sneeze?”

“I asked if you had seen my dog.

He’s short and quite rotund.”

“Perhaps. What kind of dog is he?”

“I said he’s a dachshund.”

“Gesundheit. Let me see

I think I have a tissue.

Aren’t allergies just awful?”

“No, my health is not the issue.

I’m looking for my dog

Please help, I’m in a hurry

Please tell me if you’ve seen him

So I do not have to worry.”

“What kind of dog?” “A dachshund.”

“See there you go again

I cannot understand you

Through all that sneezing, friend.”

“A dachshund, dachshund, dachshund!!”

“My, what a sneezing fit!

Now tell me, Sir, what type of dog?”

“But I’ve been saying it!”

“All I hear is sneezing

Speak slower, with more care.”

“Have you seen my wiener dog?”

“Why, yes, he’s over there.”

  1. This is so cute, I love it!! Thanks so much for your sweet comments on my blog by the way!! I just wanted to let you know that when I went to respond to your comment on my blog, you showed up as a no-reply blogger, so I couldn’t click reply to answer your comment by email. This used to happen to me and I’d wonder why I never got responses to my comments on people’s blogs, until I fixed it with this tutorial! http://www.venustrappedinmars.com/2013/06/google-ultimate-no-reply-blogger.html Just thought I’d let you know!
