Pet Poems

Today I am posting a poem about our dog Molly who was the worst dog swimmer in the world. But when we went on holiday to Sandy Bay (near Whangarei) this summer we taught her to swim and she got really good and was very proud of herself. Her brother Nonu has always been an excellent swimmer. This is the poem I wrote about Molly BEFORE her swimming lessons.

Feel free to send me your pet poem (and a photo if you want). No more than 30 words. Don’t forget to say it is for the pet poem challenge. Include your name, age, year, school. Include your teacher’s name and email if you like. Send to



Molly needs swimming lessons

because when she dog paddles

she smash paddles.

Her paws go crash splash screech scrash

like a champing chomping concrete mixer.
