Dog Poetry: The Naming

Cute Dog Face
 The Naming
Give me something strong
Give me something powerful
Give me something noble 
Give me something memorable
Give me something
To carry through all my years
With back straight and chin held high
But then you ask your three year old daughter
"Why don't you name the new puppy?"
And I'm so screwed that I could cry

 

From "I Could Chew on This and Other Poems by Dogs" by Francesco Marciuliano
