Share It Sunday’, Guest Blog Oz The Terrier!

Nominated by last week’s guest Pepper Paws!

An Ode on Bacon

There is time to sit and wait
for the week to pass to late,
all the while eating bran
put off ‘til the day does come
the emergence of the pan
and the fading of the crumb.

On the fire, pan comes to heat
preparing to cook the meat.
To hear the quiet shuffle
of someone walking about.
The open wrapper, a muffle;
a favorite, I have no doubt.

Hear it! Sizzling and snapping
rouses one from their napping.
If you listen intently
to the crackles and the pops,
you hear it whisper gently
until it’s ready, then stops.

Out of the pan, on a plate,
a hunger it does create.
Eager for salty flavor,
anticipating the crunch;
Ah, the taste one does savor
wanting to eat a whole bunch.

Near the table, one’s transfixed
waiting for the morsels mixed
in the morning’s breakfast bowl;
A round of tricks one must make
down and stay (maintain control!)
sit, high-five and paw to shake.

Tricks are done, one last command,
the wait one can hardly stand.
Command does come, “You can eat!”
I spring right up to my feet;
devoured all, now replete…
Bacon is my favorite treat!

About Me!

A Cairn terrier, like Toto, we are a breed of big dogs trapped in little bodies. Sure, I could save Dorothy from the Wicked Witch but I would much rather be in the yard chasing bunnies.

I am the 'great and powerful' Oz the Terrier and I "know why you have come".

I am a Cairn Terrier (mix) who was saved from living life in a puppy mill.  I consider myself very fortunate to now live the good life in sunny South Florida with my Ma and Daddy-dog.

Though South Florida can be hot for most of the year, I love being outdoors.  You can find me "hunting" small critters in the yard (like lizards and rabbits), lounging by the pool (but I will not swim), biking on some great Florida trails (I have my own basket) as well as camping and hiking in local and State parks throughout Florida.

Built Terrier-tough on the outside, I sometimes show my soft, artsy inside.  I love to write poetry and yes - it is from my point of view.  I also like to use my writing to help other dogs and cats in need to find loving, forever homes.  But watch out because I can be a stinker too...and you may just find yourself reading an Oz the Terrier original, dirty limerick right here on my blog.

So whipper-snappers, welcome to my blog.  I hope you will enjoy your time here and consider joining my pack so we can have great adventures together.

Continuing to give something back on my ‘Share It Sunday’. We all share and we grow together.  Pop over say hello and make a new friend.
