Nilla has a new friend from a local rescue. Eileen named her Kali. I call her “Weasel”

 Pull and tug

On living room rug

Often a friend is all we need


She’s small but mighty

Perhaps a bit flighty

And doesn’t cost much to feed


She nips your toes

And licks your nose

But no one seems to mind


Tho she’s not Pete

She’s awfully sweet

Filling voids that he left behind


Now the pack is flush

And there is no rush

To change the ratio of this group


Three girls and me

It’s plain to see

The dynamics of this coop

It's great that you were able to find a replacement pal for your dog. They need someone to pull the other end of the rug.

Pets are always so much fun. I have four kittens and they bring so much joy to my life. This is well written and amusing.

I used to call my old dachshund weasel. Her name was Dobelia! Quiet the character she was.

Wait a few months and she'll be bigger than a weasel. She learns fast. . .ask Patrick for extra treats . . . she won't say no. Big love in a small package!

Patrick "dog-love-catcher" Granfors, you gonna get the Lick of the Year by some homeless little puppy!

Awesome and family-friendly poem! The dogs from the rescue shelters are so very often the ones who feed our soul with compassion and forgiveness, Patrick...all species of women should have "two names" and in your household of two writers, Kali has a pen name well you and Eileen.

Love & Kibbles,

Very nicely done, the usages of tetrameter really adds to the upbeat story.
