Puddles of a Different Kind

Little Reena wanted a puppy
Said she'd do anything to get one
Her parents were against the idea
And promised to compensate her
With other gifts, goodies or toys
If only she'd stop all that noise
About wanting a squealing doggy
But Reena would have none of it
She in turn offered to do her bit
By not eating sweets for a week
And keeping her room very neat
Her Dad's heart melted and
He finally gave in and led
Her to a pet shop not far away
Within minutes she was all smiles
A tiny pomeranian wagged his tail
And the child was sure he wanted her
She jumped up and down as her Dad
Settled the bill and carried the dog off
In a special basket with a rubber bone
And other puppy accessories but
What they did not realise was that
Puppies need to be trained and soon
On reaching home Reena let the pup
Run loose and sure enough there were
Puddles all around the room - her Mom
Was not pleased as she had to mop up
The Dad rushed out to buy a Dog Book
Before he returned his slippers
Had been systematically chewed up
He could only see the soles and a
Very flustered little Reena in tears
"Dad I did not know that puppies
Can be more troublesome than babies
But please don't return him to the shop
I will help you and Mom to bring him up
I will train him to keep the house clean
You keep your footwear out of reach
And we will name him Puddles"
