Ani’s Advent 2019! Cats, Honey Bear and D. Wallace Peach

My dog, Honey Bear, wrote a poem for Ani’s Advent 2019. Ani is Sue Vincent’s adorable and talented pup. The spelling is atrocious, but there is a translation for those who don’t read “dog.” I hope you get a smile. Happy Holidays from Honey Bear.

Sue Vincent's Daily Echo

Dear Santa,

I’m having an interesting time with the resident cat here… I have to say, it isn’t as difficult to get on with as I thought it would be.

They are weird… but then, so are two-legses and I like them.

I mean, I’ve had a few problems with them before, invading my garden and such…

But maybe it is like she says about two-legses… you just have to get to know them, one at once, and then they seem different.

Mind you, Honey Bear seems to have got to know a bunch of them and the poem she sent me tells me that maybe I should still be a bit wary…

Much love,

Ani xxx

A translation by Diana Wallace peach of Honey Bear’s Poem:

Christmas with Cats

by Honey Bear


I don’t like cats

In the Christmas tree

They make a big mess

And blame it…

  7. Oh, this is delightful, Diana. And I love the hand…errr paw-written poem. Hugs on the wing!


  8. I’ve read some delightful stories and essays by well-spoken (well-bark-ing?) dogs, but never before a poem. Honey Bear is a poet and perhaps doesn’t even know it, but I laughed and nodded at her right-on rhymes. 🙂

    • She did a decent job, Pam, considering this is her first try. I had a few suggestions for her, but she liked it the way it was, spelling and all. 🙂 I’m glad you enjoyed her masterpiece. It was great fun to post. I hope your holiday season is shaping up nicely. Happy Writing, my friend. ❤

    My dog likes tearing up pieces of paper, instead of writing on them… I guess I should train my dogs more! Hahahaha…

    • Awww. Thanks, Sheri. Honey Bear and I have a great time with this. It’s the time of year when I need a little silly fun to break up the craziness and pressure of the holidays. I’m so glad you enjoyed it. I’ll let HB know when she wakes up from her nap. Lol. Happy Holidays!

    Hi, Diana! I loved Honey Bear’s poem. It put a big smile on my face. I love all animals, but we all know how messy and temperamental cats can be, so I’m team Honey Bear! 😉

  20. What a cute post and poem. I read the letter without translation. Honey Bear made my day. (I don’t have a cat, Honey.)

    • Thanks for reading, Mary. I guess you can read “dog.” This is actually based on my grandson’s 4-yr-old phonetic writing which required a lot of translation by his mom. It was fun to pull together. Happy Holidays, my friend.

    • Thanks, Jacqui. Just being silly amidst all the hectic bustle of the season. HB doesn’t like the Christmas tree much to begin with. We’re eager for January. And thanks for the Santa connection – our 3rd year!
