Hello! And how are you today?
I’m glad to talk with you, I say!
I’ve a story to tell to you…
Something fun that you never knew!
Murphy-Girl…She’s my poochie Friend!
We play and play till day does end.
We jump and run…play hide ‘n seek…
It’s hard to hide ’cause Murph will peek!
Murph is a sweet and loving pooch,
But she sure gives a sloppy smooch!
We run and race and race and run;
We always have such great, grand fun!
I think, though, that ’cause Murph’s so fast,
Is why I always come in last!
But there’s a secret I will tell…
If you promise to keep it well.
You better hold on to your seat…
Murphy-Girl has very…big…feet!
Don’t get me wrong, it’s not so bad.
Big feet can sometimes make you glad!
I wish I had much bigger feet.
Then I could run so fast…so sweet!
Our Murphy-Girl sure covers ground,
Much faster than others around.
Murphy is black from head to toe.
Not one white spot is there to show!
If it is daytime when we race,
At least, then, I can see her face!
‘Cause when we try to race at night,
It’s way too hard! She’s gone from sight!
But that’s ok, because she’s fun,
And never wants to hurt someone.
Murphy always watches my back.
On this, she’s never known to slack!
She smiles at me! Yes! She does!
And why she does this is because
She is my Friend, and I’m her Friend,
And we hope that does never end!
Can’t talk more now…we have to go.
Murphy and I, we both well know
That it’s not long we’ve time to play.
Our work is done, so not much day
Is left for us to race and run
And wrestle-play and have some fun!
We hope that you can do this, too.
Go have some fun with things you do
That you enjoy, when work is done.
And stressful things? We hope there’s none!
Maybe you’ve time to read out loud
To someone fun…maybe a crowd?
You know I’m glad we talked today!
God bless you is what I do say! (See Footnote #23)
