A Dog Poem

"Sad Dog, Not Bad Dog"

It's hard to be a Dog
When you haven't done Anything Wrong
Rowan is a Noble Dog
I would Lick him if I Could
-- Grendel the Dog

I hope that Grendel will accept the very high and yet also dubious honor of being It's A Dog's Life Poet Laureate. Poets are real swell, and dogs are real swell too. Put them together... It could only be Grendel.


  • All I can say it "wow".
    --Scout (the non-poet dog)
    (however, I am a fast runner)

  • Oh Scout, I adore you because you have a nice smile and you love your guardian so unreservedly. I think you are just swell and I feel happy whenever I think about you. Even if you never write a poem, you're my gal!

  • glad i got to see you TWICE today! that muzzle looked scary, but i realize it's just a spooky halloweenie outfit.

    sorry we could only cry through the window at each other. i'm sure lindy will be home soon to keep you company.

  • Grendel is very gratified that Rowan liked his poem!

    And how special to be Poet Laureate. He wonders if there are treats involved.

    And we continue to count down with Rowan.

    Tuesday: 41 days???

  • It must now be under 40 days! So in less time than it took for the rain to fall on Noah's Ark, you will be sprung!

    Grendel had to go to the vet today for Normal Stuff, no big problems. He says that sometimes going out is not all it's cracked up to be.

  • Hey romeo Buddy...thanks for walking by my window and woofing at me. I felt sad the other day when I saw you walking around with your guardian and I couldn't come over. Did you see my mask? I hate it. And today Lindy spoke very harshly to me about it and, I don't know what all those words meant but from now on I am going to be nicer to her when she puts it on me because, I'll tell you what, she's got a thing about it. I'll be able to come over and sniff of you soon!

  • Sniffing? That sounds naughty, Rowan.

    Listen to Lindy. Ya gotta wear the mask. Good dog. good dog.

    Grendel, lovely poem.

  • Well, dear Grandmere Mimi, that's just how us dogs say hello. Sometimes I wonder what ARE you humans thinking!

    I hope Grendel had fun at his vet. I love my vet, Doctor K, because she gives me treats and pets and she gives real good shots too. Plus, when you get a shot, she gives you dog jewelery which is pretty great.

    I think today is only 39 more to go. Lindy said to think of it like counting the Omer. I don't know what that means because dogs don't have Omers but hey, whatever keeps her happy.

    Lindy took me on a long car ride today which made me feel real happy and now I am all tired and I just need to crawl up on my big red couch and go to sleep.

    Good night all.

  • Rowan,
    I need your help! My mommy came home today all upset because one of her elementary school students punched her in the head and kicked her in the shins a whole bunch. Her head hurts real bad and her shins are all bruised and swollen.

    Here's my plan:
    You put on your scary rabies halloween muzzle mask and I'll wear my police-dog uniform and we can go over to the kid's house and scare him real bad. Scare him so bad that he pees his pants! What do you think?

    Well, I think she needs a different better job where she can be home once in a while AND where she has enough money for us to do some fun stuff. I'm glad I'm a dog. It doesn't look like much fun to be a human.

    See you in a few weeks! (I'll try to come by your window to say hi sometime this weekend.)

    Your pal,

  • OK Romeo, I'm in... as long as it's totally non-violent and causes no harm or humiliation to the little human.

    Me andmy guardian agree, your Mommie needs a new job.



    By Blogger Rowan The Dog, at 5:04 PM  

  • OH, yes... I agree. I would not like to hurt a small human.

    I also don't really want to even scare him. I think I just had a lot of doggie adrenaline going from the whole incident.

    You know, Aimée used to like kids a lot. I think she's getting burned out on them a bit.

    Glad we got to wimper through the window at each other a little bit last night!

  • I want to know what an Omer is.

    And Romeo, this is Not Good.I would bite him. Mom says I don't have any compunkshuns. Maybe those are like Omers.
