Little Brown Dog

Listen to Kathryn ...
The little brown dog
stops to sniff sniff sniff.
It wags its tail
at the whiff whiff whiff
of three hot sausages
left to cool cool cool.
The little brown dog
starts to drool drool drool.
It snags the sausages.
It scoff scoff scoffs.
What a happy brown dog!
Off it trot trot trots.
