## My Dog Multiplication

### how many dogs did I want?

Late last year,
During winter vacation,
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!
That was 2 dogs X 1…
Two dogs were cool,
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 wild-fun ride,
But it’s time Multiplication,
Learns to divide!
