Can you guess what pet I am ?

Can you guess what pet I am ?

A Poem by Tom
"

She's just one of six !

"

I’m black & white an adored family pet, can you guess what I am?

A killer whale? An unlikely tale! 

A friesian cow? I can’t see how!

A zebra braying? What are you saying? 

A piebald pony? You’re a phony!

A panda bear? Well I do declare! 

A stinky skunk? You must be drunk!

A speckled hen? Try again! 

A feathered magpie? Although I try, I can’t fly!

A little clown-fish? Not my dish! 

A pet rat or cat? I’ll have none of that!

And don’t say giant ant-eater, goat, stoat, 

lemur, rabbit, pig, penguin or warty tree frog!

My name’s Tilly, sometimes a silly-billy 

and I’m a cute little Shi-tzu dog!

What a delightful poem, Tom! Among all those other black and white creatures, the pup is the one who will be there waiting anxiously for your return at night, maybe even bringing you your slippers. Loved the rhyme scheme, too, it helped make the poem smile.
