A poem about the fun of doing as the breed suggests, in retrieving her favourite stick, The picture of the dog which accompanies this poem, is not a Golden Retriever it is another dog I drew, so a mungrel is better than no dog at all.


Bonnie the Golden Retriever
Dons her name extremely well
Her fur flowing in the breeze
As she dashes through the dell
As she gets more excited
Her tail wagging with vigour
Pouncing through the heather
His owner shouting come hither
Bonnie being the cheeky rebel
Turns and bounds quickly away
Dipping deep beneath the bracken
She’s only wanting to play
As she comes back to heel
A stick is thrown down the dale
Bounding onward seeking her goal
She’s not wanting to fail
Her prize between her teeth
Returning to her masters voice
Placing it carefully at his feet
Panting full of rejoice
