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,

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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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:
