The Alphabark Challenge, 2014!

Here, have a smooch 
From this lovable pooch
No A to Zed
It fills me with dread
So mark
And hark
Here's the Alphabark!
"A" if for "Arf!"
I'm having a laugh
"B" if for "Bark"
Sometimes I snark
"C" is for "Chihuahua"
Hello, how are ya? 
"D" is for "Dog"
A pawblished blog
"E" is for "eekPawblishing"
If that's your thing
"F" is for "Feline"
Having a whine
"G" is for "Gary"
How very scary
"H" is for "Howl"
Without a scowl
"I" is for "Insect"
A bug I detect
"J" is for "Jack Russell"
The dogs that hustle
"K" is for "Klahanie"
Pawmoting I see
"L" is for "Loon"
A Canadian tune
"M" is for "Metrosexual"
Such a transport ball 
On all things Metro
Didn't you know.

Halfway through 
Just for you
The Alphabark Challenge
My friendly revenge.

    1. Greeting ninja type dude,

      My human has gone into a darkened room. Has told me he might not surface until June. I bark and I'm having a lark. No, not the bird!

      Well done to me. Passing ships in the alphabet sea. If they can land a man on the Nevada desert, I can do the Alphabark :) You spell in English, English. That's a start.

    1. Hi human, Crystal,

      Each pun, a brand new one. Just having fun in the sun before I go on the run. It was "B" day and now it's no way day. I'm a Bodacious Dog and will be starring in the remake of Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure. Excellent!

My Dear Paw Paw, 3 day fatigue has made herself felt today, and I am not ashamed to admit that eek publishing is not my thing because I don't know what it is - - I went to a chocolate ball once is that similar to a transport ball... there were lots of sexy things happening there - I guess I don't know - Penny my D post tomorrow is about my beloved Dog I would love you two to meet, but it doesn't have to be until the end of this challenge ok - Gary you're not even scary when you howl with a scowl :) Reflex Reactions

    1. Hi human, Ida,

      Ah yes and it puzzles me as to why folks would do a month long challenge. It ties up the blogging world and it confuses my poor doggy brain. eekPawblishing is the thing. For pawblished dogs who also do blogs.

      I shall do my best to get to your "D" pawst. I will respond to that one even if you are then on the letter "M". So difficult to keep up. Very ironic I even try to keep up with the challenge that I cannot tolerate :)

      Chihuahua is an unofficial cat. Being Penny, I shall ask my pretend human, Gary, how he feels about the "C" word................He's absolutely okay with it. I see my human is booking a trip to Mexico.

    1. Hi human, Lee,

      I had a hunch you would be craving more, my illustrious human friend. If you're drooling in a dog dish, pawhaps you might need to take some time away from your alphabet challenge. Come join my alternative. Could always use another co-host. "D" is for "Drooling in your Dog Dish."
