Are You a Puppy or Dog, a humorous poem As Good As Gold

A puppy is needy,

He’s cuddly, yet squeaky,

His eyes are beady,

He is small.

He needs his cuddles,

Preferably in bundles

For he loves to snuggle

All night long.

A puppy has questions,

Runs away from lessons,

Jumps in all directions,

Yet he always

Looks for mom.

A puppy’s intentions

Can always be questioned

Although are the best ones,

Or so he says.

A dog has learned his lessons,

And he’s been called a blessing

More than once.

A dog knows that the present

Is the blessing

He’s been looking for

All along.

And so I ask you,

Between the two

What came first,

Puppy or dog?

For a puppy needs his mommy

And a dog grew up from a puppy

Or when else

Had he learned

That the present is gold?
