Dog Poetry: Chain Reaction
101 Dalmatians Chalk Art
Chain Reaction
Late one night
I step out in the yard
And bark
Then the neighbor's dog barks
Then his neighbor's dog barks
And so it goes
House to house
Street to street
Town to town 
State to state
Coast to coast
Until the very last dog
Tallies up those barks
And that's how we elect our president

Dog Poetry: When I See You
Dog Shopping at Nooga Paws
When I See You
When I see you head for the kitchen
I know it's time for my dinner
WHen I see you walk to the yard
I know it's time for us to play
When I see you go to the car
I know it's time for a drive
When I see you turn on the TV
I know it's time for my head on your lap
And when I see you climb into bed
I know it's time for my walk

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

Dog Poetry: Bored
Dog laying in chair
I get so bored
So very bored
Being all alone
Stuck inside this house
House
House
House
House
House
Which explains why
I shoved my head inside this jar
And everything has an echo
Now does anyone have any Vaseline?

Dog Poetry: Treat
Dog Treat Nose
Treat
How long do you
Expect me
To keep
This
Treat
On
My
Nose
Before
I can
GULP
Oh, my bad
Guess we better try this trick a twelfth time

Dog Poetry: Food
Dog with Bacon Barley Bones
Food
Food
Food food food

Who says a dog
Can't write a love sonnet?
