PUFFY

About a pretty dog I have to tell, –

A Maltese dog, so curly, white, and fluffy;

His nose was pinker than a pink sea-shell,

His eyes were also pink, – his name was PUFFY.

When he was six weeks old, quite small and scared,

He came unto the house of his new Missis:

His teeth were sharp, he bit so hard,

She cried, “Oh what a charming doggie this is!”

When Puffy slept he rolled himself up tight,

And looked just like a little worsted bundle;

He used a large round stool to roll and bite,

Which on the floor his Missis used to trundle.
