Puppies in Pockets (December 1988)

PUPPIES IN POCKETS

I took little mother
for a walk on the green,

But what was to happen
I hadn’t foreseen…

For I left with just one dog
And returned with all three,

Two puppies in pockets and their mother with me.

I wrote this in 1988 when I took my very pregnant Dobermann bitch Tegan, for a walk on the oval and she turned into a total loonie and spent 15 minutes zooming around at top speed (mind you she was carrying 10 large pups at the time)!!! I was convinced for a while that I’d be bringing puppies back in my pockets…hence the title..
