Me and My Dog at the Beach

To the beach, my dog and I run,
Play catch frisbees, just for fun.
Umbrella’s to block the sun,
Waves crash upon the sand.
My dog chases gulls that try to land. Sky so blue, sand so white,
My dog and I, were up at daylight.
Winds are warm and blowing slight,
Ocean sprays, dog strays,
Sand blows, through our toes. It gets cool, the sun goes down,
My dog and I, head back to town.
It’s time we leave the beach to rest.
After all, we were just a guest.
All the birds have flown away.
We will come back, another day.
Just me and my dog, to play.

Poem Happy Dog at the Park

I’m a happy dog at the park
I yelp and woof and bark
Along with the sound
Us dogs run around
I’m a happy dog at the park

I’m a happy dog at the park
You may think me off the mark
But I’m not by mistake
In the mud by the lake
I’m a happy dog at the park

I’m a happy dog at the park
I hunt like a big hairy shark
When the bunnies trail
Puts a spring in my tail
I’m a happy dog at the park

I’m a happy dog at the park
I’m glad that some bright spark
Brought a ball to throw
Now off I go
I’m a happy dog at the park

I’m a happy dog at the park
I’ll be wagging well into the dark
Enjoy fresh air and fun
Is my tip everyone
I’m a happy dog at the park

Poem Happy Dog at the Beach

I’m a happy dog at the beach
If I had the power of speech
I would tell you all
To throw my ball
I’m a happy dog at the beach

I’m a happy dog at the beach
There are no new tricks you can teach
I’m bouncy and glad
And my tail wags like mad
I’m a happy dog at the beach

I’m a happy dog at the beach
My joy is always in reach
Whatever the talk
It’s the best place to walk
I’m a happy dog at the beach

I’m a happy dog at the beach
As I hear the seagulls screech
I chase and I bark
Long into the dark
I’m a happy dog at the beach

I’m a happy dog at the beach
And I don’t want to start to preach
But if you ask me
The best thing to see
Is a happy dog at the beach

Poem Happy Dog in a Car

I’m a happy dog in a car
Hope we’re not going far
I walk up and down the back seat
At each corner I’m rocked off my feet
I’m a happy dog in a car

I’m a happy dog in a car
Zooming down miles of tar
Sniffing around everywhere
I know where we are by scents in the air
I’m a happy dog in a car

I’m a happy dog in a car
I’m feeling well above par
On the window I’m sniffing near
My nose leaves a slimy wet smear
I’m a happy dog in a car

I’m a happy dog in a car
We’re on our way, hurrah
Happy thoughts run through my mind
As I stare and wag at the car behind
I’m a happy dog in a car

I’m a happy dog in a car
And going slightly gaga
Too excited to lay down and nap
I’ll look out the window and let my ears flap
I’m a happy dog in a car

Poem I have a Dog

I have a dog, I have a dog
that jumps about and leaps like a frog.
I have a dog, Yes, a pure bulldog
who you leaves me behind brown turd logs.
I have a dog, a big bulldog bitch
in hygiene and wits she’s really not rich.
I have a dog, who doesn’t know her name
who’s known for being helplessly lame
To own her is a curse and a terrible shame
But she is my dog and in my care of course
so I must majestically attend her by sheer force


Poem My Darling GoodNight

This Morning, I Woke Up And Kissed My Dad’s Head
I Peed On The Carpet, Then Went Back To Bed
“The Life Of A Puppy, Oh My, This Is Great”
Then I Thought About Breakfast,” I Hope It’s Not Late”

Mom Took Me Outside, We Walked For A While
This Never Fails To Make Mama Smile
I Sniffed Of Everything That We Did Pass
I Ate Something Weird And It Gave Me Gas

I’m Sure God Loves Me, I Know That Is True
He Gave Me So Many Great Things To Chew
Rugs, Plants Or Rocks, I Really Don’t Care
What I Truly Like Best Is Dad’s Underwear

That Obedience Book Was Sort Of Yummy
Though It Didn’t Sit Well On My Poor Puppy Tummy
I Threw Up A Bit But That Was All Right,
When Mom Found It Later, I Was Well Out Of Sight

I Made Streamers Of T. P. While Running At Full Speed
Mom Is Pretty Quick But I Was Still In The Lead
I Flew Under The Bed And Mom Flew Past
She Stopped And Shook Her Head And Breathed
“You’re Too Fast”

Mama Later Phoned Daddy And Said, “It Was Frightening!”
That Afternoon She Was Sure I’d Pooped Lightning
She Sat At The Computer While I Chewed The Cord
She Thought I Was Mad But I Was Just Bored

When Mama Had Enough And Couldn’t Take Anymore
That’s When My Tushy Got Shoved Out The Door
I Love It Inside But Outside Is Best
Lay In The Cool Grass And Had A Good Rest

That Didn’t Last Long As There Was Too Much To Do
Can’t Quite Remember Where I Hid Daddy’s Shoe
I Found An Old Bone And Scratched At A Flea
I Watched The Dumb Squirrels As They Jumped In A Tree

I Barked At The Kids When They Got Off The Bus
I Can’t Figure Out Why This Makes Mama Fuss
I Barked At The Neighbor, I Barked At The Wind
I Barked And Barked, Till Mom Yelled, “COME IN”

The Sun Dipped In The West, Soon Daddy Would Come!
I Sure Love My Daddy, We Always Have Fun
I Barked At My Daddy And Then Turned On My Charms
I Woof Woofed, “Hello,” Then Jumped In His Arms

Sitting Under The Table, It’s Sooo Hard To Wait
Daddy Slipped Me A Goodie Right Off His Plate
I Raced Through The House And Scattered My Toys
Ricocheted Off The Furniture And Made Lots Of Noise

Mom Found Her Purse, The One I Had Abused
Daddy Let Loose A Chuckle
Mom Asked “Are You Amused?”
I Cowered Down Low, I Must Be In Trouble
Dad Said, “Wasn’t My Boy, It Must Be His Double!”

Mom Turned Off The TV And Said, “It’s Time For Bed”
Dad Said “Let’s Go Boy” And Patted My Head
I Got In My Spot Between Mom And Dad
I Thought About My Day And What Fun That I Had

Mama Kicked Out My Bone From The Covers Below
Then Let Loose A Sigh, A Sigh Deep And Low
She Gave Me A Kiss And Snuggled Me Tight
And Whispered So Softly, “My Darling GoodNight”

 


Poem for Puppy Parents

Don’t smell crotches, don’t eat plants.
Don’t steal food or underpants.
Don’t eat my socks, don’t grab my hair…
Don’t rip the stuffing from that chair!
Don’t eat those peas, don’t touch that bush,
Don’t chew my shoes, what is this mush?!?

Eat your cookies, drink your drink,
Outta the toilet! Outta the sink!
Away from the litterbox, thats for the cat!
and must you kiss me after that?!?

Raising a puppy is not for the lazy,
Those rugrats are funny but also quite crazy.
Don’t despair through the toil and the strife,
Cause after three years you’ll get back your life!
So let’s go for walkies, so you can do your “thing”,
And maybe I’ll get back my good diamond ring!

Poem A Dogs Soul

Every dog must have a soul
Somewhere deep inside
Where all his hurts and grievances
Are buried with his pride.
Where he decides the good and bad,
The wrong way from the right,
And where his judgement carefully
Is hidden from our sight.
A dog must have a secret place
Where every thought abides,
A sort of close acquaintance that
He trusts in and confides.
And when accused unjustly for
Himself, He cannot speak,
Rebuked, He finds within his soul
The comfort he must seek.
He’ll love, tho’he is unloved,
And he’ll serve tho’badly used,
And one kind word will wipe away
The times when he’s abused.
Altho’ his heart may break in two
His love will still be whole,
Because God gave to every dog
An understanding Soul!


Poem I Adopted your Dog today

I adopted your dog today
The one you left at the pound
The one you had for ten years
and no longer wanted around

I adopted your dog today
Did you know he lost weight?
Did you know he is scared and depressed?
And seems to have lost all faith

I adopted your dog today
He had fleas and a little cold
Guess you don’t care what shape he’s in
You abadoned him I’m told

I adopted your dog today
Were you having a baby or moving away?
Did you suddenly develop allergies?
Or was there no reason he couldn’t stay?

I adopted your dog today
He doesn’t play or eat much
I quess he’s very sad inside and
it’ll take time for him to trust

I adopted your dog today
and here he is going to stay
He found his forever home
and a warm bed in wich to lay

I adopted your dog today
and shall give him all he will need
Patience, love and security
so he can forget your selfish deed.

If you want to feel like you’ve made a real difference as a dog owner, adopt a dog from a shelter or rescue group. There are few other ways to make such a huge difference in another creature’s life.

The Humane Society estimates that only in the US six to eight million dogs and cats are surrendered to shelters each year. Of those animals, about half are adopted, and half are euthanized. There are simply more dogs than there are good homes for them
(one reason why spaying and neutering is so important).

There are shelters and rescue groups everywhere. So when thinking of getting a puppy check those organisations first. Rescue groups are organizations that take dogs out of shelters and keep them in foster homes, and sometimes private kennels, until homes can be found. Some are breed-specific, while others take all types of dogs. Overall, they tend to give the dogs more medical and behavioral care than many shelters. Just google for a shelter or rescue group in your area and visit.

Make this world a better place and save a life by adopting!


Look into my Eyes

I lie belly-up
In the sunshine, happier than
You ever will be.

Today I sniffed
Many dog butts, celebrate
By kissing your face.

I sound the alarm!
Paperboy, Come to kill us all
Look! Look! Look! Look! Look!

I sound the alarm!
Garbage man Come to kill us all
Look! Look! Look! Look! Look!

I lift my leg and
Whiz on each bush. Hello, Spot
Sniff this and weep.

Sleeping here, my chin
On your foot. No greater bliss well,
Maybe catching cats.

Look into my eyes and
Deny it. No human could
Love you as much I do.
