A Dog and His Turtle

While I continue to make our new house a home and set up my new studio, Jaz the wonder Vizsla-boy-dog inspired a little rhyme - complete with a few fun photos. Spring's in the air and, in my opinion, there's nothing like enjoying it in my very own backyard right here in the Ozarks.

A Dog and His Turtle

I found a nifty turtle
Deep beneath the leaves.

I dug and dug and dug some more
And finally brought him to the forest floor.

I named him Mr. Turtle.
That’s as creative as I can get.

Me a little furry,
Him in his house in a bit of worry.

We had a good game of chase
And then I won a race.

After a drink of water
And a nuzzle or two. . .

Mom let the turtle go, she thought it for the best.
After all, it was time for a wee-bit of a rest.

The sun went down.
The sun came up.

And out I went to find my new friend.
He was in the leaves all over again.

Another round of chase.
A little nap and a snuggle. . .

Then the day was over, the sun in the west,
My friend Mr. Turtle, you are the best.

Burrow down and take a long nap,
I’ll dig you up in the morning.

Have a Turtle-Friend kind of day ~
