LIMERICK – JEMSBOOKS – LUCY THE TALENTED TOY TERRIER!
This is an old post that I wrote last year. I hope you will enjoy reading about my dog Lucy, who was a cherished pet for 16 years. I miss her still!
Here is the last limerick for my young children’s books – ages 0-8, grades – PS-Gr 3. Hope you enjoy it! Read about all the other Limericks for Jemsbooks, Louey, Ricky, Lamby, Jerry, Jesse, Broose, Sebastian, Colby, Jeffrey, and Clarence Henry.
All Jemsbooks young children’s books are written in rhyme with life lessons. Each book tells about an animal in a fun and interesting way. Lucy teaches children to have fun, go out to play and care for your pets with kindness and love. Children will learn how to think of someone else besides themselves as they care for their pets. It’s a wonderful learning experience.
LUCY THE TALENTED TOY TERRIER
There once was a dog named Lucy
Who loved spaghetti and treats so juicy.
She enjoyed watching animals on TV
And was always as friendly as can be
Unless you took away her cherished rag or ball.
You were then no longer a friend at all.
There once was a dog named Lucy,
Who’s only claim to fame
Was her curled up tail and her cute little name.
She loved spaghetti and doggy treats.
These were her favorite things to eat.
She loved watching TV
And late did she stay up.
She was a special kind of pup.
She made me smile and feel full of glee
But now that she is gone I’ve lost a part of me.
LUCY THE TALENTED TOY TERRIER
This book is based on my dog, Lucy, who I had for 16 years. She was quite a character and did all the things that are in this book.
She loved my spaghetti with homemade sauce, watched TV shows featuring animals, hated baths, “sang” when music was played, and had two cherished possessions, a knotted rag and a ball.
I hope you will enjoy reading about Lucy. She is no longer with us and can never be replaced.

Janice Spina is an award-winning children’s, and YA book author, with over 15 titles under her belt.
“Lucy the Talented Toy Terrier” is Spina’s latest effort, and based on the beloved pet she once had. Spina takes the reader on a typical day… moments in Lucy’s active (and often funny) life, through lively and detailed rhymes. Accompanying the text are simple illustrations of Lucy within photographed background scenes, care of the author’s husband, illustrator John Spina.
As a previous dog owner, I adored this rhyming tail… er, tale! I’m sure your kids will too!
