Note: In this series, we’ll spotlight each winner of the 6th Annual Pets Add Life Children’s Poetry Contest.
Rian’s dog Sutton means the world to her, and it’s obvious the feeling is mutual. From Rian’s poem, it’s clear Sutton and her do a lot of playing and relaxing together, which is exactly what pals should do! We love that Rian has such a wonderful playmate, and that Sutton has such a sweet, loving human!
My Dog Sutton is the Best
By: Rian, of Saratoga Springs, NY
She scampers to the door,
and looks out at the snow.
She wants to see beneath it,
whats buried down
I open the door and she runs out,
looking for what is buried down
ball, glove, or toy,
she loves it if it’s in the falling snow.
She runs inside,
to drink water that drips
on her doggy lips.
Then she lays down to sleep;
On cushions, tile,
and inside all the curtain tears!
Her eyes close,
“Sleep well” I whisper to my pet.
Sutton is the best dog yet!
Stay tuned to meet the rest of winners. We’ll feature one every day this week.
