Ode to Our New Dog Jake (in the style of the nursery rhyme, “One, Two, Buckle My Shoe”)
One, two…he ate the other shoe
Three, four….he’s destroyed the screen door
Five, six…can’t you just chew on sticks?
Seven, eight…let me get this straight
Nine, ten…he’ll get over this when?
Eleven, twelve…the clean laundry basket is not the place to delve
Thirteen, fourteen…humping Mocha is not a-courting
Fifteen, sixteen…stop counter surfing in the kitchen
Seventeen, eighteen… for you to drop something, I’m a-waiting
Nineteen, twenty…I know your food bowl is empty

One, two, Buckle my shoe;
Three, four, Open the door;
Five, six, Pick up sticks;
Seven, eight, Lay them straight:
Nine, ten, A big, fat hen;
Eleven, twelve, Dig and delve;
Thirteen, fourteen, Maids a-courting;
Fifteen, sixteen, Maids in the kitchen;
Seventeen, eighteen, Maids a-waiting
Nineteen, twenty, My plate’s empty.
