Marty’s World: Meet Albert
Albert, the sausage dog,
lives just next door.
He’s old and he sleeps
on a rug on the floor.
His legs are quite short
so he can’t jump up high
and his favourite teddy
is always nearby.
When he sees Marty, he stands up and barks:
he knows she will take him for walks in the park.
Because he’s so short, he gets dirty quite fast,
especially when he runs on the wet grass.
When the ground’s muddy, his fur is a mess!
But taking a bath is the part he likes best.
Marty likes rubbing him with his shampoo,
But when Albert shakes himself, she gets soaked too!
An old shaggy teddy bear and a chewed tennis ball.
Misnaming things adds to the world's woes.
Albert is named after Albert Camus (1913-1960), a French philosopher, author, and journalist. He won the Nobel Prize in Literature at the age of 44, the second youngest recipient in history.
