We Totally Missed National Puppy Day! Better Late Than Never!

National Puppy Day was on Monday and here it is Wednesday already.  We will catch up with a little post about Pete the Pup from Don Marquis in The Lives And Times Of Archie and Mehitabel.

pete at the seashore

i ran along the yellow sand
and made the sea gulls fly
i chased them down the waters edge
i chased them up the sky

i ran so hard i ran so fast
i left the spray behind
i chased the flying flecks of foam
and i outran the wind

an airplane sailing overhead
climbed when it heard me bark
i yelped and leapt right at the sun
until the sky grew dark

some little children on the beach
threw sticks and ran with me
o master let us go again
and play beside the sea
                                       pete the pup
