"I refelect on some of the pets I've had, all who have brought me happiness."

Your First Pet

The Power of Pets

Mark Hudson

The first pet I ever had was a dog
But the second pet I had was a frog
I picked up my frog at Camp Timberlee
Brought it home in a jar with glee
I put it in an aquarium so nice to see
But I accidently let it go free
A friend in the 4th grade gave the advice,
" Bring your frog to Florida, that would be nice!
You can let your frog bask in the sun!"
And so he ran away, that little one.
My dog was always a loving creature,
And as for humility, a great teacher.
She loved our family, no matter what we did.
The dog I had since I was a kid.
Then I lived on my own and I could only have fish,
They kept me sane but I still had a wish.
For something I could hold in my arms and pet,
To replace the dog we put to sleep at the vet.
I now have a guinea pig, named Twitches I love,
And surely she seems a gift from above.
Given by a family who could care for her no more,
I adopted her and taking care of her is no chore.
Animals give love when humans forget,
Boy am I grateful that I have a pet!
