Day #16 of my A-Z series on “What Makes Me Happy?”
I played with words that start with “P”
– like PUPPIES and PALM Springs.
I contemplated P words
and all the joy PEACE brings.
I thought about the POWER of PRAYER,
lemon PIES, PATIENCE and PAINTINGS
But then I gave more thought to
What makes me happy through and through,
And decided on POSITIVITY.
What’s a “Happy P word” for you?
I have been writing daily from an A-Z list of “What Makes Me Happy.” I already shared
A= Antelope, B = Birthdays, and C=Christmas. Today should have been a day for “D”, but
on this blog:

we were asked to use “P” as the letter and write an Alphabet Haiku. As you know, Haiku is a poetry form of three lines with the syllabic count of 5, 7, 5. An alphabet Haiku follows that pattern, but every word in the poem must begin with the same letter. That’s a challenge!
So, I am skipping ahead to the letter P to participate in the Alphabet Haiku Challenge.
Of course, as you might guess, PUPPIES make me happy!

Precious playful pet
Yes, I confess, I am a member of BostonTerrierAddicts on its FaceBook page. We post pictures and videos of our dogs and do a lot of ooohing and awwwing. Our Taze is the “Tazmanian Devil with Ears”. As a puppy, when we got her five years ago, her gigantic ears were straight up at only ten weeks young! We were going to name her “Angel,” until we met her. BOING! BOING! BOING! She was a jumping jack! Nope, “Angel” didn’t fit!
Most Bostons’ antennae stick up straight and as puppies the ears seem larger than the rest of the dog put together. When one ear flops and takes its time perking up, some new Boston Terrier people become quite concerned. When is it ever going to straighten up? Ike, one of my favorite Boston Addict pups, is four and a half months. Isn’t he adorable?
Not to worry!! That ear will pop up soon! And if not, who cares?
Well, I think Bostons are precious with or without both antennae working . Don’t you find them irresistible, too?
