Doggie Hug by Lilian Fitchett

Hugs from granny are chin-spiky,
finger-wrinkly, bone-creaky.
Hugs from grandad are hair-ruffly,
pat-on-the-back-y, pinch-my-cheeky.
Hugs from my dog are extra smelly,
super slobbery, tail-waggly.
Hugs from my dad are spinny and dizzy,
high up and whizzy, squashy and squeezy.
Hugs from my mum are safe-feely,
soft and cuddly, fall-asleepy;
these hugs are best-of-all-y!
