she's stylin

And now I present a Cinquain* about Piper and her new coat:

Grey & orange
She models it
Makes her feel warm



And now, I present an Acrostic poem.

Petco lover
Inspector of odd sounds
Protector of me and Mark
Eater of doggy cookies
Really hot puppy dog

Piper demonstrates her ability to "Stay"


Wondering what the heck a Cinquain is?!

Poetry with five lines. Line 1 has one word (the title). Line 2 has two words that describe the title. Line 3 has three words that tell the action. Line 4 has four words that express the feeling, and line 5 has one word which recalls the title.


Boy, wouldn't my English teacher from high school be thrilled?! Give a little nudge to your creative side and try poetry for yourself! There are zillions of types - and they're all fun!

Tune in later to read about our new house guests. Get thrilled!


  1. OMG!!!!! Her coat is ADORABLE!!! You got it from PetCo?!

  2. yes ma'am!

    Petco sent us a coupon for FREE pound of treats! A pound is like a LOTTT of treats! A full bag! So we got her assorted cookies with "icing" on them, ones that look like chocolate chip cookies.. alphabet cookies, etc. She *LOVES* them. Along with that coupon, they sent us a 10% off coupon.. so we used it on the coat! The coat was $16.99 but our total bill, including tax, was like $16.05 or something. Sooo worth it! :) And it's orange, my favorite!

  3. Yeah! We got that 10% off coupon too! I was wondering what we could use it for, but maybe they'll have Lily's sizes in the store and we can use it for a cool and stylish jacket like Piper's!
