The Granddaughter, The Chicks and Her Dog!

Share

Marsya chicks 1Where most people have a table and chairs in their dinning room, my son-in-law, daughter and granddaughter have a paddling-pool with fourteen chicks! It is another new chapter of excitement in the seventeen-month-old’s life – soft toys that move and chirp without needing batteries! Her dog sits, stares and wonders a different thought…

My granddaughter looks at the chicks and thinks:
Fourteen soft fluffy toys!
The chicks look up at the granddaughter and think:
Mummy?

The heat lamp looks at the chicks and thinks:
Responsibility – must warm!
The chicks look up at the heat lamp and think:
Mummy?

The feed hopper looks at the chicks and thinks:
Responsibility – must feed!
The chicks look at the feed hopper and think:
Mummy?

The water trough looks at the chicks and thinks:
Responsibility – must water!
The chicks look at the water hopper and think:
Mummy?

Her dog looks at the chicks and thinks:
Fourteen fluffy snacks!
The chicks look up at her dog and think:
What on earth is that with all those sharp teeth,
THAT’S NOT OUR MUMMY!
