Kids and PALs Bring Smiles, Poetry Contest

Pet PALs are funny lessons in humility, patience and communication. The best part about having a PAL like Tripawds Spokespup Wyatt Ray Dawg is that he is constantly teaching us with laughter, even when we think he’s just being a big goof.

Like when he plays sheriff at the pool. See, if we pay attention, we would realize that Wyatt isn’t merely barking like a maniac to get attention. What he’s really telling us is:

Hey Kids, Look Out! Bark!
That water is dangerous! Bark! Bark!

No! Wait! Don’t go in there! Bark!
Oh no! Where did you go? Bark! Bark!

Geez kid, there you are! Don’t scare me like that again! Bark!
Keep those paws where I can see them, got it? Bark! Bark!

You squeak,you squeal,and run in your wheel
When I put you in your ball you slam into walls
You are cute and cuddly as can be
Together forever,you and me
