In Honor of #NationalPoetryDay, I Offer….


first the sun came up
and then we went outdoors to
enjoy the new day.



My human is old and she’s grumpy.
Her clothing is wrinkled and frumpy.
The bitch, with some brass,
said I’m a pain in the ass,
And that’s how I got the name Rumpy.



You laughed when I chased and then
ate the bug.
But now you are pissed that I
puked on the rug.




Humans want all that they can see
But dogs are content to let things be.

About Jen and the Furries

Hello and welcome. I’m a 50 something woman who’s probably awake when she should be sleeping. Oh, and there are animals, because who doesn’t have pets?

  2. I always wondered how you got your name Rumpy. You are such a noble and handsome dog, the name did not fit until now.
