Dancing with poodle

"Get down, Petaluma Petal"
Auntie Pat exclaimed

"Misnamed Petaluma Pete",
explained Uncle Paul,
before exiting with Dad
to play pool in the heat.

Rocks dropped upon foot
No plastic balls for Pet
I never picked up to throw
Cuz saliva made them wet

This rock collection habit
For her became routine
Several trips to local vet
Left gum minus dentine

White toothless Petal
This dog-friend was mine
Curly, of medium fettle
Aforementioned city: canine.

Each time she saw me
Dust clouds would arise
Streak from porch to driveway
Jumping to my thighs

Wildly spun calypsos
En pointe pirouettes
Happy jigs on lino
Clipped toenail ballet

Now it's decades later
And this dog no longer be
Smelling pink crape myrtle,
Under shady walnut tree

Mossy creek has snappy turtles
There Petals' bones are laid,
(for Pat had several poodles)
Petal numbers I, II, and III.
