Beetle black eyes
in that black satin face
long pink tongue
hangs between canine teeth
Shaved the puppy today. His face is nekkid but he’s extra cute! We’ve been training today. He learned 3 new tricks! He puts the toy into a lacrosse stick for me to throw it (very handy on mucky days), he’ll lie over my feet, and he stands on his back feet. This in addition to come, sit, down, back, catch, go pee. Very talented puppy. 😉
such strong imagery in such a simple poem i love it, the dog’s picture was painted before my eyes 🙂
It is similar to child rearing, in essence.
