Martini the little shiatsu was cute as can be
Wagging his tail so carefree.
by the ocean with good friend Suzy.
Now he was very aware
for when he got scared
he hid under Maya’s desk
and there he would rest
his head on Maya’s small feet
then he’ld look up for a treat.
“Now why did you name him Martini? ”
I asked Maya quizzically one day.
Then Maya turned her head to say
“Well, this is the story Sue Chevalier–
“Martini was named after the club
where people like to dance–
I met my husband Ron
there by circumstance.”
All three used to live together by the sea
Martini passed on but Maya has fond memories
of her sweet Shiatsu dog named Martini.
