A dog inspires this limerick for children.
         Floppy-eared, tail-wagging mutt Gus
         of his size seems oblivious.
         Climbs onto my lap
         to drool, snore and nap.
         My shaggy blanket humongous.
         
         Long-tongued, slobbery, wet mutt Gus
         smiled with a grin most ominous.
         He shook his great hide,
         cocked a leg and sighed.
         as I choked in his gas thund'rous.
         
         Wide-eyed, trembling, whimp'ring mutt Gus
         awakes to a noise suspicious.
         I am urged to rise
         while he stays and hides
         safe from shadows dark and vicious.
         
         Nose-twitching foodie is mutt Gus,
         smells and tastes entice, fabulous.
         A gurgle growl roars
         from Gus on all fours.
         Grabs my snack, proves he's ravenous.
