My Dog Multiplication
Late last year,
During winter vacation,
Dad got us our dog,
Multiplication...
Multiplication's a good
dog,
But often brings trouble,
Like the day I woke up,
And noticed he'd doubled...
Two dogs were there,
Double the fun!
I had a big grin...
That was 2 dogs X 1...
Two dogs were cool,
But what about more?
The next day I woke up,
And saw there were 4!!!!
4 dogs were a lot,
But the fun was still great,
Until the next morning,
When I saw there were 8!!
Eight dogs for walking,
Was one of my fears,
That's 32 legs,
And 16 dog ears!!!
But now I know 8,
Was a small complication,
Compared to,
16 X 1 dog,
Multiplication!!!
That's 64 paws,
And 16 long tails,
32 eyes,
256 toe nails!!!
Having so many dogs,
Has been a wildfun ride,
But it's time Multiplication,
Learns to divide!!!!
Math Challenges 
If my dog multiplication doubled each day for 7 days, how many dogs would I have? 
If there are 36 dog paws in a room, how many dogs are there? (they have 4 paws each) 
If 1 dog, 3 cats, 2 humans, and 5 birds are in a room, how many legs are there in the room?
