A Dog Named Buttons


A friend of my neighbor's on the left side,
comes to visit. They bring the little white
dog. It's a small white Terrier; everytime
she sees anyone she barks. I was coming up the
driveway from the back yard. The little Terrier
comes running and barking at me. I looked at
the little dog, and said " now aren't you
ferocious," barking away.

Today I was coming from the mailbox, spotted the
little white dog, she whirls around, starts barking
again. She acts like she's going to charge a little,
then she'll start barking again. I said aren't you
ferociuos. I learned her name today, it's Buttons.
A little girl came out, said Buttons you stay over
here. Buttons acts like she may want to come to me,
then she'll run around and bark again.

Buttons is a cute little dog, maybe she'll come to
me, let me pet her. Without her barking at me or
anyone. She likes to go out into the yard, if there's
a sound she's surely to bark at it. Then if you
walk towards her, she barks, runs for the porch.
Barks 'til they let her in. Buttons you're so
ferocious, she thinks she's so scary.

Buttons's is a little girl
Still thinks she's scary.
