Dog Stories, Prose And Poetry

 

Old dogs, war dogs, puppies or strays,

Poetry has power to brighten our days.

Dog stories and poems are best read aloud,

To an audience of one or a theater crowd.

 

 

 

When I Got My New Dog

Author Unknown

 

I asked for strength

that I might rear him perfectly;
I was given weakness

that I might feed him more treats.

I asked for good health

that I might rest easy;
I was given a "special needs" dog

that I might know nurturing.

I asked for an obedient dog

that I might feel proud;
I was given stubbornness

that I might feel humble.

I asked for compliance

that I might feel masterful;
I was given a clown

that I might laugh.

I asked for a companion

that I might not feel lonely;
I was given a best friend

that I would feel loved.

I got nothing I asked for,
But everything I needed."
