Hot Dog!

I don’t really mind the heat,
so long as it’s not on my feet.
The thought of sleeping on ice,
really seems mighty nice.
Cuz in the dog days of summer,
This winter coat can really be a bummer.


It's Saturday Centus time again. And this week Mrs. Jenny gave us a photo prompt - a bulldog chillin' on ice - and instructed us to write some poetry...100 words and no additional photos. Well, you know me...it's against MY rules to NOT use a photo... and poetry...well, I'm not looking to be named the poet laureate anytime soon. But it's fun to play along anyway. 

Be sure to stop on by Mrs. Jenny's and see what the other Centusians had to say by clicking HERE.

Nice photo to go with your poem. I so was thinking of adding another photo also, but chose not to. Great Job!

Dogs sure can cool off fast with their feet in cold water. :)

Winter coat or not, that is one darling dog, and I just love his charming house too! Oh and of course your poem rocks as well!

That was a fabulous treat...nicely done :)
I so wanted to add some more photos but I've been in 'Time Out' with Jenny for breaking the rules over several weeks and wanted to get 'outta that stinking corner so bad, I ignored my own inclinations this week !!!

What a cute illustration!

Although with all that fur, I suspect your poor dog might have time finding a chill...even on ice!

Cute use of this prompt!
