Dogs in Casinos Limerick

Phyllis Pette, of New York, hugs her dog, Baci, a 10-year-old Maltese, while near the slot machines inside the Showboat Casino Hotel in Atlantic City. The casino becomes the first in Atlantic City to allow hotel customers to bring their dogs.

Dogs in Casinos Limerick

A woman was shooting the breeze
Playing at the casino with much ease
She pulled at Jim Blake’s
And entered sev’ral sweepstakes
While holding her cute little loving Maltese.

About zongrik

For those of you who do not know the handle "zongrik," that would be Bat-Ami Gordin. Most people call me "Tammy." Bat-Ami means "daughter of my nation" in Hebrew. It's a heavy name to carry around. I answer to either name. I also answer to "mama." Some Basic Things about me: Animal lover, mom, poet/writer, dramatic soprano, photographer, teacher/tutor, CERT/Technician and, oh yeah, aerospace engineer. I consider myself "The Astro-Poet." To learn more about the origins of the word "zongrik" see whats-a-zongrik?

  1. LOL! Thanks for joining in with your fun limerick about that oddball news story. 🙂

  2. Love this…some people love their pets so much they can’t go anywhere without them..

  3. How funny is this? Next comes the table where dogs get to play poker, like the old velvet portraits!! Thanks, Tammy, for a great laugh. Amy

  4. her poodle sat in her lap
    and the buttons she did slap
    yet as lucky as she felt
    she ignored the hand she’d dealt
    until she stepped in Fido’s crap

    🙂 ….couldn’t help myself…I’m just so full of it

  5. people are def attached to their dogs…perhaps it brings her luck you know…
