Mischief Monday - Bad Poetry - by Hailey

This week is the 2nd annual Bad Poetry week hosted by Oz.

Hailey will be writing about her meeting with her human cousin Maggie


Humans have ruined my life in a new way,
They brought in a little thing that stinks,
All the attention goes to her,
When it should be going to me.

Humans tell me to stop ruining the day,
Baby doesn't like my barking they thinks,
Her noises made my head a blur,
Why won't they let me be?

When carrying her they look like a 2 headed beast I say,
It is so crazy I need some strong drinks,
I don't like little things without fur,
It is just who I am, I am Lee.

Editor's note: Hailey actually got an A- for her behaviour when Maggie (who is now 2 months old) was in the house. At first she was very, very tense. Every noise Maggie made she would react too, but she did settle. While we were eating, Lee happily had some crate time. By the end of the visit Lee only got upset when someone was carrying Maggie or Maggie was being passed between people. She bravely came close and sniffed her. We hope she will learn to be less afraid, but if not, she will get some crate time.

Ready for the beach! 


  1. Good for her for learning well. It may always take Hailey a little while to calm down, but I think an A- is a very good grade!

  2. That's a super good bad poem, Lee. Butt an A- is a good step in the right direction, well done :o)

  3. Hailey I love love love your ode to a tiny human!
    Bravo for you not reacting to the shrill squeals.
    Hey before long she'll be dropping snacks on the floor. Then she'll be your new BFF
    Hugs madi your bfff

  4. BOL! I love Madi's title for your poem "Ode to a Tiny Human". BOL That was a great terrible poem! And oh...I hope you will learn that tiny humans are not scary someday. They are great at sneaking dogs treats!

  5. Great ode to little one stealing the limelight but you'll be buddies soon Lee we are sure of it. Have a marvellous Monday.
    Best wishes Molly

  6. I'm sure in no time you'll be friends! Just hang in there until the baby is old enough to start sharing food with you!

  7. your new unfurry companion is adorable and love the poem

  8. Very good!! Don't worry that little thing will eventually give you lots of treats

  9. Oh Madi is so right! Those little people are so clumsy with their food…and some of them think it's fun to share their people food. Good times ahead, and great *bad* poem too!

  10. Wonderful poem! And we think Lee will be less fearful in time. It just takes her awhile to get confident around those little scary monsters!

  15. Hey Lee!
    Wow, I like your poem bunches! BOL to the two-headed beast! I agree...those mini-two-leggers are definitely different. I hear they drop lots of yummers though, so that's good. BOL
    Grr and Woof,

  16. Great Poem! Bailey avoids the grandkids, Hazel loves to give the babies kisses, Greta does too but she is too rambunctious for the babies!
    Mr Bailey, Hazel & Greta

  17. The poem AND the baby are just too cute for words!
