Tough puppy love



Puppy pulls ahead
or pulls a pause to
sniff some mutt’s
behind. People say
she’s dominant, she
doesn’t respect me,
that I do dog wrong:
wrong tone of voice
too tightly leashed, not
tough enough. Don’t I
know she wants to
play then they sidle
out of reach, leaving
the divisive words.

One thought on “Tough puppy love

  1. I love your poem, it says a lot about the relationship between dog and owner and other people’s views of how things should be. But despite that she is a gorgeous girl, it must be difficult to resist those big soulful eyes. She’s clearly well looked after, despite any criticisms.
