The exercise:

Write a four line poem about: cats and dogs.

It wasn't a particularly nice day here, weather wise, but we still took Max to the park to get some fresh air and exercise. We were hoping there would be other kids there for him to play with, as his week with his cousin seems to have utterly spoiled him, but we had no luck on that front.

Ah well, at least StrongStart begins again on Monday.


Throw a stick,
I'll chase it anywhere!
Throw that stick?
I suppose. If you dare.

Chihuahuas dislike bad weather a lot; they usually refuse to go outside if it's raining or they think it's too cold. Snow is interesting at first, but then is too cold :) But it's quite temperate here at the moment, definitely mid-Spring weather for the most part, so I've been walking them around all the local parks to get them exercise and wear them out. Much like you and Max, I suspect :-P

Heh, your poem brought a smile to my face this morning!

Cats and dogs
The cat sits aloof,
Licking its paws and dreaming.
Then it flies from the roof,
Pursued by a dog, and cat-screaming.

Greg - yeah, Max seems to be an all weather sort of kid. So far, at least. Though I remember he certainly didn't like the cold when he was very little. Guess his lungs have toughened up or something :P

Love the rhythm and imagery of your poem this week :)
