Favourite Pets by Marli Farrer (1st)

I have a lot of pets
Which one will be first
I just can’t pick a favourite
But I do know who’s the worst!

My first pet is Murphy
He’s a very lazy cat
He gets stuck on the roof sometimes
What do you think of that?

We’ve got a second kitty
And Willow is her name
She’s very sweet and kind
But whining is her game!

Our newest pet is Clifford
A dog that loves to play
He’s got a lot of energy
We walk him every day

How could I pick just one
I love all my pets the same
There’s one more pet to mention
But I can’t tell you his name!

He likes to play some games
And although he’s lots of fun
He can be very naughty
And gets in trouble with Mum

Sometimes he’s very stinky
And could use a real good scrub
He likes to go on adventures
And get dirty like a grub

Even though he’s trouble
I love him just the same
Clearly, he’s the favourite
And Daddy is his name!
