Hi mummy, guess who
I just popped up ‘cos I smelt food
I was out digging for Viking bones
But all I found were some old stones
THEN I heard a saucepan rattle
And forgot all about my Viking battle
I ran straight home at such a pace
Just to show you my sweet face
So now I’m here, it would be rude
Not to give me loads of food
And as I’ve run so fast and far
Feed me NOW
This was a commission for a pet portrait. Siggy is my very good friend’s puppy and she and Scooby love to hate each other. I wrote the poem to describe what a great little dog she is.
The Siggy-Sig-Ahhh is reminiscent of the Spice Girls and is sometimes Siggy’s nickname, along with others unmentionable.
