(to the tune of My Favorite Things from The Sound of Music)
Bunnies and squirrels that I watch with wonder,
Air vents and cool fans that I can lie under,
Raiding the cat box for a tasty treat,
These are a few of my favorite things.
Warm days spent chewing on socks made of cotton,’
Rolling in dead things or garbage quite rotten,
Colorful fire hydrants covered in pee,
These are a few of my favorite things!
Pooing in the middle of intersections,
Lunging at bushes to make a connection,
Munching on cookies that make my heart sing,
These are a few of my favorite things!!
When it’s too hot
For my daycare
And I’m feeling sad,
I simply remember my favorite things,
And then I don’t feel……. so bad!

Love the song ! Imagining you woowooing it 🙂
PS : I suppose this THE hydrant … I must admit it looks quite funky … we only get red ones around here.
Yes, this is my favorite one! Jen says it’s because I like to pee on the weeds *giggle*
LOVE IT! SO CUTE!
Loup will love it, too. He can definitely relate to your favourite things, Rumpy. He loves all those things, too.
Now THAT’s inspiring! Who knew you’re such a poetic pup? I’m envious cuz I don’t get to pee on hydrants of *any* colour. There aren’t any where we live. And nobody leaves socks around for me to chew, or lets me out where I can find those dandy dead things to roll in. But I have my very own cookie jar — it says “Biscotti” on it, altho’ it’s full of specialty biscuits that a friend of my mom’s always buys for me. And I have my very own toy box, too, full of stuffies and chiewies that I love. And my own photo album. And a nice red collar and matching leash I get to wear whenever we go travelling. I guess my life isn’t so deprived… but yellow and blue hydrants??? WooWooWoo!!

Did you check out Loup’s poem too Woo woo!
Very, very good. I quoted the poet Robert Browning in a post this morning but your poem is far better! 🙂
Oh Rumps, you are just overflowing with talent! Perhaps I should write a blog entry about my favourite things too! It probably won’t be as poetic though….
I bet you’ll be singing when you’re done!
You are one talented Poet Rumpy:)!!
Your favorite things sound like they make you want to do The Dance of Joy! At our house, the people call rolling in dead things “being a Primal Pup!” The first time Laurence rolled on a water-logged dead rat at the park, it was a huge event! It got written up in his puppy journal even.
We don’t really understand what that cat box thing is about though. We try really hard to cover everything up, but maybe it’s like buried treasure to dogs? In that case, happy to oblige!
Love & loud purring from The RainbowCats
Primal pup- cool!!!! Is that what I am when I eat cat poo? *giggles*
I sang it all the way through! You should see my roommate…
Is your room mate human? *giggles*
This is a wonderful written piece, I loved your poetical spirit dear Jenny, And sure lovely Rumpy is great. Thanks and love, with my love, nia
Thank you! Singing makes me feel better no matter how rotten things seem.
What a wonderful song, I like much better then the original
A beautiful song! I like it better than the original too. Wouldn’t it be great if they filmed a remake of The Sound of Music with animal actors instead of humans?
Great words Rumpy. Been singing along here! 🙂
Haha! This is so cute! I love it! It makes me want to think of one. 🙂
Raiding the cat box tut tut MOL 🙂
You are very talented, Rumpy! 🙂
