The World’s Greatest Pet – Ode to Bunk

Once upon a time in the depth of Scottish night

Small puppy was born, whole black, nothing white

He had two black brothers and one tiny sister

But we knew from the start which one is our mister

His human Mum got him a small ribbon in red

So it’s easier to tell, which one is our fluffy head

Three months went by

And our pup was ready to ride

We drove almost whole day, in sun and some rain

So we can collect him by car and not by the train

Black fluffy ball looking like a small scared bear

Was sitting on my lap as he didn’t like the chair

He still didn’t have a proper name

We wanted to get it right so it’s not a shame

We thought a lot on how to call our little punk

And finally we settled – we named him Bunk

Once we arrived at our humble home

First thing we did, was a bath full of foam

My 1st bath

Nicely cleaned and fully fed

Bunk started a search for his own bed

He was growing fast and making new friends

He learnt a lot of tricks and some cat-like trends

Bunk puppy days

He grew up to be a big, strong and very handsome boy

Who likes to play with others and knows how to share a toy

And as long as you don’t mind getting wet

He is for sure the world’s greatest pet!
