My Very Own Dewey Clock

A little Bit of Gratitude

It wasn’t all that long ago that I met a brand new friend.
She’s really far across the world, but not quite to it’s end.
Now here’s a dog that has a blog ‘n lives so far away.
Rescued off the streets of India…she was just another stray.

Her given name is Oorvi, and she crawled out of the earth.
I’ve heard about her rescue, but not about her birth.
There comes a time, when the sun will shine and wash your cares away.
And because of Cameo and Mercury, Oorvi lives to play another day.

Right now she has a pampered life….’n she has a new job too.
How she manages ta do it all, I haven’t got a clue.
Now Mercury must be an artist…’n a writer too… fer sure.
And if ya haven’t stopped ta see her blog…ya need ta take the tour.

Cause Mercury, with Oorvi’s help has made a bunch of clocks.
And clear across this crazy world….a great big door unlocks.
Yer welcomed in with friendly arms…’n kindly asked ta stay.
Why, help yerself…’n sit a spell…’n pass the time ‘o day.

And to this friendly stranger…. so kind, creative, ‘n super smart.
No doubt a programming wizard.. ‘n I say this from my heart.
No other doggie could imagine…seein’ a clock lookin’ just like me.
But it’ a hit…..sit ‘n stare a bit …a rat yer sure ta see.

So to Mercury 'n Oorvi….may gratitude travel ’cross those miles.
I hope ya all have looked at it and left with lots of smiles.
And if ya like this poem… now, take it cause it yours.
Ya left the key… so willingly to open all those doors.

And so I present.....drumroll please....Dewey Dewster lookalike clock complete with ratitude. Created by Mercury....mother to Oorvi, the little doggie who has a new lease on life. Pass yer cursor over the cloak 'n see the rat appear....I have no doubt he's teasin' me but I don't really care.

Thank you Mercury...you are brilliant !!!!!!

Dewey, the clock is an amazing work of art.. how did Mercury make that? And you are a fabulous poet, but somehow I'm not surprised.

Hey, I thought I saw you in Vermont last weekend. I saw a doggie who looked just like you and I wanted to go over to him and smartbark with him but Mama said it wasn't you. I was very disappointed.

Your pal,

Hi Dewey,

Thanks for the lovely gift. You are a wonderful poet:) I don't know how you do it. When I try to rhyme my words, all I get is ooooowooooooo!

I've added the gift to my blog too. (Mercury's getting a bit emotional...I should go to her and lick her face:))

Licks and Wags,
Oorvi
