Poems about Pooches

Epitaph to a Dog (Boatswain) by Lord Byron.

Beau by Jimmy Stewart.

Ed McMahon called himself and Johnny Carson maudlin mutt mourners.
I am too, so decided to write haiku-esque poems about my Samoyeds.

Smart and strong,
No matter what life threw at her,
Snowball rolled on.

Spring followed Snow,
While bouncing to and fro,
Daisy was crazy.

Except when she was sleeping.

Vincent Price wrote a whole book about his dog!

The Book of Joe will be re-released on April 26.

Celebrate by joining the Dress Your Pet Like Vincent Price contest.
Post a photo of your pet dressed like Vincent on his Facebook page
with the hashtags #bookofjoe and #fundforanimals.
Then send your name and address to
If you're not on Facebook, just send your photo to that address.
Winners will receive a copy of the book and many other goodies.

Vincent also befriended the pooch Mooch in Mooch Goes To Hollywood,
who is played by Higgins (better known as Benji) in drag.
I love it and this wonderfully weird fan video:

This post is in celebration of National Pet Day and National Poetry Month.

I'm late as usual, but hope to join in on this poetry party:
