White Dog, The Mighty Quinn, Nuka Angel, Puff the Magical, and YoYoMa want to send out birthday wishes to Michael, who is 20 today...and to Dr. Seuss. After school, we will celebrate Michael's growing place in our Army, and now we pay tribute to the wise and wonderful Theodor Seuss Geisel, with the White Dog Army version of his classic 1 Fish, 2 Fish...

one dog, two dog, white dog, bright dog,
big dog, spry dog, fluff dog, my dog,
Some go WOOF! and some just coo. Some are old and some res-cue
some are sad and some are glad. And some can be very bad.
Why are they sad and glad and bad? I don’t know. Go ask your dad.
Some are thin and some are fat. The fat one has an ap-pee-tat.
From there to here, from here to there, Blogland fun everywhere.
There are some who like to rhyme. Some like to dress and act in mime
Oh me! Oh my!
Oh me! Oh my!
what alot of funny things we spy.
Stories of  two feet and tales of four.
Amazing photos and posts galore.
Where do they come from?
I can’t say.
But many have come a long, long way.
Through them we laugh and share and cry
Each is unique not like another.
Don't ask us why.
Go ask your mother.

With the greatest respect and love to Dr. Seuss, who taught the White Dog Army not just to read but to live joyously!

Happy Birthday Michael!!! Hope you have a wonderful celebration!

I absolutely LOVED your poem and think the White Dog Army should start writing some children's books (that adults could enjoy, too).

Your pal, Pip

Very clever! We liked the way you worked in res-cue and ap-pee-tat! I think Dr. Seuss would approve. Happy Birthday Michael!

You have helped me make a decision this afternoon. My son, 46 years old, loved a recording of Yertle the Turtle, when he was just a little guy about 3 or 4. Because we had to hear it so often I was able to memorize much of the story. By next years BIrthday, In honor of Dr. Seuss and Michael and my late mother (also her birthday)I plan to recite the entire thing!
Can you hardly wait, WDA?

Jo, mom to Stella and Zkhat

And a very special Happy Birthday to Michael!! {Did he plan to be born on the same day as Dr. Seuss?)

Have a nice weekend!

I just realized you guys have dropped off my Google Reader! What's up with that? Blogger is acting up again. A couple weeks ago Luna dropped off. I'll have to watch this and try to figure out what's going on. Just thought I'd let you know!

How do you do something like this? I mean, truly, I have no whatsoever skills in creating these kinds of literary work.

High Five, WDA Mom!
