Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Mom Pam gave us a challenging, inspiration photo this week for our poem. We are hoping she, Teddy and angel Sammy won’t be too offended when they see we’ve altered the photo just a wee bit. In fact, we hope it will give the three of them and all of you a giggle or two. Maybe Mom Sharon (Friends Furever) will even snort Diet Coke out her nose.


Dinosaur Rodeo with Cooper Murphy


Dinosaur Rodeo

Have you ever been to a dinosaur rodeo?
We swear they are lots of fun
But be careful of those big feet,
Or you might get squashed like a bug.

There’s Velociraptor racing,
And Brontosaurus riding,
Iquanodon roping,
And Megalosaurus wrestling.

You’ll need a good imagination
Or your very own time machine
To travel to the Mesozoic era
And join the rodeo scene.

But first grab a lasso,
Your cowboy boots and hat,
A dinosaur prod will come in handy
And don’t forget the snacks.

Dinosaur wrangling isn’t easy.
You must be brave and strong.
But trust us, you’ll have a blast.
Just be careful; you can’t go wrong.

Thankful Thursday

As we do each Thursday, we also are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday blog hop. We are delighted and grateful to have so many wonderful, caring and supportive blogging friends.


We also are excited and thankful to have received these two badges from the Tuesday Teaser (also hosted by Two Spoiled Cats) this week. Kitties Blue were the First to Comment and didn’t have to share this honor with anyone else. And, though not first, thanks to Dad Tom, we guessed the locale, (Lima, Peru) correctly.

Oh, MY! What a fun poem! You could set it to music…like The Carnival of the animals, by Camille Saint-Saëns…petcretary was listening to that just before she read this post:)

I loved seeing Cooper Murphy being a cowboy cat!

That is an awesome photo and poem!!!!!!!

Teddy May 10, 2018 at 5:42 am

HA! Well you all really “knocked it out of the park” with this poem! I love it…..Imagine the fun of dinosaurs on the range – riding, roping, wrangling….I have a feeling THEY would win most of the contests though. Cooper is the perfect “ride ’em cowboy” too with his special COOP-BOOTS on! Thanks for the giggles – I’m sure that giggle-echo I hear is Angel Sammy at the Bridge having a hoot. Thanks for playing along with us on Thursdays……………You all ROCK!

Hugs, Teddy
