Should I Bark First?

Boy, that’s one cute dog!

Across the street.

Should I bark first?


Maybe she’ll think I’m rude,

And run away;

That’d be the worst!


But, what if she likes it?

And comes over,

To say “Hi”?


What am I thinking?

That’ll never work.

Why even try?


Wait – did you see that?

She looked at me!

Or was it you?


Could I be seeing things?

What should I say?

What should I do?


Oh, well, forget it.

I scared her off.

She’s gone.


Wait … you hear that?

She barked first.

Dang – hot diggity dog!
