1. Tough Going

So many lessons
A pup must learn!
You get in trouble
At every turn.
You can chew a ball
To your heart’s content
But — chew a shoe
And there’s punishment!

Bark at strangers
“Good little feller!”
Bark at a friend
It’s “Down in the cellar!”
Beg in the parlor
— “Clever stunt!”
Beg at the table
“Down you runt!”

Roll in the grass
And they say you’re cute
Roll in the flowers
–And dodge a boot.

The ways of Humans
Ain’t got no sense
And a pup must learn
By experience!
– Berton Braley

2. Why Do We Love Our Bulldogs

Why do we love our bullydogs so?
It seems very strange to so many, you know.
They maze at the wrinkled up face that seems “smashed.”
They whiff doggie odors and gas that’s been passed.
If some folks were honest, they’d shout out: “Alas!
You’re telling me truly, for this you paid cash?!”
Why do we love our bullydogs so?
Some call us weird and deranged “so-and-so’s.”
With stark frozen fear, they gaze at the teeth,
the massive broad shoulders and little fat feet.
They gasp at the sight of the jowls and then shriek:
“Someone please save me! Just throw him some meat!”
Why do we love our bullydogs so?
They say we’re obsessive fanatics, you know.
An accurate statement, but “Foul !” I protest.
You don’t understand why a bulldog’s the best!
It’s hard to explain; to that I’ll confess.
But sit down and listen, to what I profess.
Why do we love our bullydogs so?
And why does our love continue to grow?
I can’t speak for all, but I’ll say what I know.
To me it is simple, and easy to show:
From the short stumpy tail to the wrinkled-up nose,
they’re sensitive children, just dressed in dog’s clothes.
– Dan Atcheson

3. The Power Of The Dog

There is sorrow enough in the natural way
From men and women to fill our day;
And when we are certain of sorrow in store,
Why do we always arrange for more?
Brothers and Sisters, I bid you beware
Of giving your heart to a dog to tear.

Buy a pup and your money will buy
Love unflinching that cannot lie—
Perfect passion and worship fed
By a kick in the ribs or a pat on the head.
Nevertheless it is hardly fair
To risk your heart for a dog to tear.

When the fourteen years which Nature permits
Are closing in asthma, or tumour, or fits,
And the vet’s unspoken prescription runs
To lethal chambers or loaded guns,
Then you will find—it’s your own affair—
But … you’ve given your heart to a dog to tear.

When the body that lived at your single will,
With its whimper of welcome, is stilled (how still!).
When the spirit that answered your every mood
Is gone—wherever it goes—for good,
You will discover how much you care,
And will give your heart to a dog to tear.

We’ve sorrow enough in the natural way,
When it comes to burying Christian clay.
Our loves are not given, but only lent,
At compound interest of cent per cent.
Though it is not always the case, I believe,
That the longer we’ve kept ’em, the more do we grieve:
For, when debts are payable, right or wrong,
A short-time loan is as bad as a long—
So why in—Heaven (before we are there)
Should we give our hearts to a dog to tear?
– Rudyard Kipling

4. I look into your eyes

I look into your eyes and can see,
The trust that is built between you and me.
You never judge me when I am blue,
You are a friend thats always true.
The life you lead is like that of a child,
Sometimes your calm and sometimes your wild.
We walk outside every day,
And that is when we both like to play.
If life was as simple as it seems to be for you,
We would be content and happy too.
Your loyalty is one of love,
You are a gift from heaven above.
Its hard to think of you as just a pet,
When you are the best friend I could ever get.
I know to most your only a dog that lives here,
But to me your the friend that is always near.
– Unknown

5. I have a little friend

I have a little friend whose always by my side,
We’re never very far apart no matter what the time.
I have a little friend who listens to what I say and doesn’t judge
me for what I’ve done but what’s inside of me.
She gives me the support I need to make it through the day.
And when I’m sad she seems to know just what I need to have.

My little friend is not like me she has some things I don’t,
like four legs, a tail that wags and a nose that’s wet and cold.
She lets me know with a gentle nudge that she cares
and is there for me.
We’ll never be that far apart,
and when the time does come,
I know we’ll be together again in that spot above.
-Linda McBroom

6. Little dog lost

The little dog wandered the streets
as he tried his very best,
to find a scrap of food
and maybe a place to rest.
Darkness was beginning to fall
it started to turn cold,
he had a home but now it’s gone
a story so often told.
His family no longer wanted him
they tossed him out one day,
to live or die was no concern
as they went upon their way.
Now he must scrounge for food
and hopes that he will find,
someone to take care of him
and he hopes that they won’t mind.
A little dog so full of love
who just can’t understand,
if someone will just take him in
he’ll do the best he can.
To be the best companion
and friend that he can be,
to love them and protect them
is the future he’d like to see.
He will find that special person
to give him a loving home,
and then from that moment on
he’ll no longer have to roam.
– Mark Childre

7. To Flush, My Dog

Loving friend, the gift of one,
Who, her own true faith, hath run,
Through thy lower nature;
Be my benediction said
With my hand upon thy head,
Gentle fellow-creature!
Elizabeth Barrett Browning

8. True Love: The Love of a Dog

Gorgeously delightful
eyes of chocolate brown
Love so sweet and tender
whenever you’re around ~

Head that rests so softly
upon the lap within
A faithful loyal friend
where love truly begins.

Gentleness that whispers
speaks volumes to the heart
Eyes convey a message
they’re everywhere you are ~

Powerful yet loving
they speak a thousand words,
And still they melt your heart within
for they truly are your world!

A love forever faithful
how can one be without
Such loyal devotion
and the nudging from that snout?

For a house is not a home unless
one pauses to see
Through the eyes of he who lives
with love unconditionally.
– Christina

9. Puppy Tail

Suddenly it’s there again,
I see it with my eye,
I turn to grab, but it’s not there…
then it’s there again, behind.

Must be quicker next time,
Take it by surprise,
I turn again, but it’s gone again
and it’s there again, behind.

Faster and faster round I go
and then I feel a pain,
I must remember when it’s there again,
that it’s part of me, behind
– Ivy Hawkins

10. As A Pup I Dreamed And Wondered

As a pup I dreamed and wondered
What life would hold in store
For ME, I thought, there’s something GREAT
Beyond that kennel door.
Out there are needy people
And I have much to give
Love, and wit, and gentleness
To help them learn to live.
I’d be someone’s protector,
Keep little ones from harm,
Or guide an old man’s steps,
Or help to run a farm.
I’d run and bark and jump and play
With friends along a sandy shore
I’d roll in meadows, thick and green
That lie beyond that kennel door.
I lay here waiting, longing,
As the days and years went by,
My owner kept me fed and brushed,
But inside let me die.
I do not think of greatness now,
I’m old and filled with pain.
My owner has some ribbons,
But I have lived in vain.
I cannot think what could have been,
My dreams are filled with hope no more.
Just floors and walls and a broken heart
For me behind this kennel door.
– KummerM

11. The Snuggle Puppy

Is he the one, that puppy there,
The one that likes to snuggle?
Can I take him with me,
To love and hug and cuddle?

Is he the one, the pup you got?
Boy! he’s growing fast.
Sure that’s what you wanted?
Nah, never gonna last.

Is he the one, just brought in?
They say he is too large.
Put him in the end cage,
Write down what to charge.

Is he the one, the big one there?
Yep he’ll guard our house and home.
Chain him in the back yard,
He’ll be ok alone.

Is he the one the angel asked,
Taking him away.
Never more to be abused,
Or in the snow to lay.

Is he the one the woman asked,
Her dogs all prancing round.
The one with none to wait for,
Well now he has been found.

Yes your the one I know it,
Go find a friend or three.
You will all be mine now,
Come cross the bridge with me
– M. Catlow
