This is a poem for a very special friend.

My Pal Oreo


I have a little poodle

Who’s named Oreo.

As you can guess,

He’s black –

Like dark chocolate,

With white –

Vanilla frosting,

On his chest and chin.


Ball is the game

Of his heart.

He’ll play

For hours on end.

Then, when tired,

Oreo will cuddle up

With Mom or I

Like a child

Who’s fast asleep.


Oreo rides often

In my electric wheelchair.

He’ll beg at my knee

For Mom to set him

Behind me.

I’ll drive him around

While I’m doing things.

Oreo rests his chin

On my left shoulder

To see where we are going.


Poodles are loyal

And smart.

Oreo barks when

Something’s amiss.

If I need help

And I holler,

He’ll bark to make sure

My mom’s heard.


My pal Oreo

Brings such love and joy

To our house

Each and every day!

Sweet! Coincidentally, I found a kitten while cycling a while ago. I put it on my shoulder and took it home. I named it "Oreo." Sadly, it did not stay long. I hope it found its way back home. Thank you for sharing this, Dawn. Love and peace,

Love, joy and companionship is what it is all about. Oreo sounds like such a heaven sent gift that one could hold, hug and kiss all day long. As you write I can sense all the happiness Oreo brings to you and you to Oreo. Both of you have been truly blessed.....

Be always safe,
