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.




If this gets you thinking about something oddly thought-provoking, share it with friends and other NetPlaces Network subscribers who are curious and thus the best informed.

There are four directions: North, South, East and West.

Our galaxy has four parts, Earth, Sky, Sun and Moon.

The world has four components: earth, air, fire and water.

There are four positions: Up, Down, Left and Right.

A square has 4 corners and the letter X has four points.

There are four seasons. Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter.

A cube has four parts, top, bottom and two sides.

There are four periods: Ancient, Medieval, Early Modern, Today.


If you are counting, that was 8 examples. Can you add more? (see below)

How about the creatures we love most all have four legs?


One of the NetPlaces Network staff made this observation:
