Tell me, little fuzzy one,
How long was I deceived?
They all said that you weren’t there
And somehow I believed.

But now you chase me
Spinning, swirling,
Here and there
Wacky, whirling,
Circling me close, sneakily snarling,
How I love you so, little fuzzy darling!

Colorful claws slip and slide on the floor,
Belonging to little black paws I adore.
Mischievous eyes lit up white with a fight,
Oh, fuzzy darling, you are quite a sight!

Two sharp fangs and little round teeth
Hope for a snack and plan the attack.
Pouncing and tumbling, then stumbling about,
And charging the moment when I turn my back!

With a twitch in your mustache
You force a fierce growl.
My fuzzy little darling,
Out on the prowl.

The author's comments:
This poem is about my adorable little dog, Trixie Doodle. I have wanted a dog for my entire life, but due to severe allergies in my family, I could never get one - or so I thought. I prayed for a dog for as long as I can remember, and finally the day came when my family and I discovered a hypoallergenic breed. I have had Trixie for about a year and a half, and she is indescribably wonderful! She is playful, sweet, mischievous and the cutest little dog you will ever lay eyes on! She is the inspiration behind this poem, and I truly hope that everyone who reads it will have the same kind of joy that I do when I see her.
