Hairy Maclary from Donaldson’s Dairy

Out of the gate
and off for a walk
went Hairy Maclary
from Donaldson’s Dairy

and Hercules Morse
as big as a horse
with Hairy Maclary
from Donaldson’s Dairy

Bottomley Potts
covered in spots,

Hercules Morse
as big as a horse
and Hairy Maclary
from Donaldson’s Dairy

Muffin McLay
like a bundle of hay,

Bottomley Potts
covered in spots,
Hercules Morse
as big as a horse
and Hairy Maclary
from Donaldson’s Dairy

Bitzer Maloney
all skinny and bony,

Muffin McLay
like a bundle of hay,
Bottomley Potts
covered in spots,
Hercules Morse
as big as a horse
and Hairy Maclary

Schnitzel Von Krumm
with a very low tum,

Bitzer Maloney
all skinny and bony,
Muffin McLay
like a bundle of hay,
Bottomley Potts
covered in spots,
Hercules Morse
as big as a horse
and Hairy Maclary
from Donaldson’s Dairy

With tails in air
they trotted on down
past the shops and the park
to the far end of town.

They sniffed at the smells
and snooped at each door
when suddenly,
out of the shadows
they
saw….

SCARFACE CLAW
the toughest Tom
in
town.

“EEEEEOWWWFFTZ!”
said Scarface Claw.

Of with a yowl
a wail and a howl,
a scatter of paws
and a clatter of claws,
went Schnitzel Von Krumm
with a very low tum,
Bitzer Maloney
all skinny and bony,
Muffin McLay
like a bundle of hay,
Bottomley Potts
covered in spots,
Hercules Morse
as big as a horse
and Hairy Maclary
from Donaldson’s Dairy,
straight back home
to bed!

We got our dear Girl-Girl this book when she was hardly four; March 2000, to be precise. I was made to read this book so often enough, I actually loved it! Its about a pack of typical English countryside dogs (Hey, I call myself BigDogDotCom, okay!) , trotting about doing their thingy. I am dedicating this poem for all the readers who have and treasure the little ones’ attention, that they share the special little precious moments by reading, together. 🙂
