We’ve decided to go with a Mother Goose nursery rhyme theme for naming this litter of puppies. They are looking really healthy and growing fast. A couple have been trying to walk around, which is so hilarious. Any day now, they should be opening their eyes, and then look out world.
Let’s get to know each puppy now, with some pictures and a rhyme!
With a rowley powley, gammon and spinach, “Heigho,” says Anthony Rowley!
As Tommy Snooks and Betsy Brooks were walking out one Sunday,
Said Tommy Snooks to Betsy Brooks, “Tomorrow will be Monday.”
Bobby Shaftoe’s gone to sea, Silver buckles on his knee;
He’ll come back and marry me, Bonny Bobby Shaftoe!
Ate the pudding, and left the bag.
‘Twas once upon a time, when Jenny Wren was young,
So daintily she danced and so prettily she sung…
Lucy Locket lost her pocket, Kitty Fisher found it;
Not a penny was there in it, only ribbon round it.
See-saw, Margery Daw, Johnny shall have a new master;
He shall have but a penny a day because he can’t work any faster.
Little Nancy Etticoat in a white petticoat and a red nose;
The longer she stands the shorter she grows.
Little Polly Flinders sat among the cinders,
warming her pretty little toes.
