~four months after I moved to California~Kathy decided I needed something to keep me busy~to take my mind off the 1300 miles between my kids & me~she gifted me Cinder~a five month old German Shepherd~I’ve learned a lot from that dog in 22 months~Momma said she’d come back as a dog to make sure I behaved myself~I wonder about that~

~Canine Chuckles~

~1000 Days~
~Day 984~
~Canine Chuckles~

~you see, the dog wants in~
~she’s scratching at the door~
~you see, the dog wants out~
~she’s scratching at the door~
~it’s the ooze, the spilled pasta~
~who’s the boss here I~
~clean her doo-doo from the floor~
~a dog whisperer told me~
~dogs can understand 97 commands~
~each one accentuated~
~by a body signature~
~can’t say the same for myself~
~I’ll probably gesture “come”~
~when I mean for her to “go”~
~neither of us will know~
~whether she’s comin’ or goin’~

~at least at that point~
~the dog & I are on equal footing~
~have ya ever seen a dog laugh~

I believe the leader takes me for a walk. That's probably what she's laughing about!

I am not a lover of dogs. In fact I dislike them and often cannot be myself in their vicinity though I alone share this discomfort among my family, friends and relatives. It is their disturbing barking that I dislike which I consider as a nuisance and intrusion into the quietude of newborn babies and old sick men. It is the first time I read a poem about dog, long years after learning Oliver Goldsmith's 'Ode On The Death Of A Mad Dog' and long after teaching William Wordsworth's 'Fidelity'. What an interesting poem this is and how simple and straightforward in recounting the observation and experience! I indeed have seen dogs laughing, to me and also at things. But it is only now that I think they can laugh at human follies and ignorance.
