White Dog said, "This is one of my favorite days." "Wednesday?" Benson asked her. "Don't be goofy," WD replied, "there are LOTS of Wednesdays." Pearl had been out in the living room with White Dog earlier and knew the answer.
"It is Dr. Seuss, National Read Across America Day!" she chimed in. "White Dog was reading some his books to us earlier. He is marvelous!"
White Dog smiled at her sister. She called the White Dog Army together. "Let's have a little fun in honor of Theodor Seuss Geisel. We are going to do a White Dog Army version of his classic tale, One Fish, Two Fish." They began brainstorming a new version...
One dog, two dogs,
three dogs, four dogs,
five dogs, six dogs,
seven dogs, eight dogs,
nine dogs, ten dogs...
all are white
one not so much so
some are old, some are new
one so new his arrival's still due
some are glad, so are sad,
the big dark one is wooing mad
why you ask?
because this poem's so bad
With that the White Dog Army, led by YoYoMa broke into a rousing chorus of Dr. Seuss is no Goose let's go make him a birthday mousse.
"Stop!" I begged. "You are making me spit coffee through my nose...and probably good old Theo is calling his lawyer!"
