My dog Bear

My Dog Bear

Let me tell you about our Bear
He’s a great big, clumsy beast
He’s got to be one hundred pound
That’s at the very least

Now he’s a crazy Rottweiler 
He’s supposed to be pretty mean
Yet really he’s a great big softie
Aggression I’ve never seen

Our Bear is such a blessed wimp
One day while we were out
He nearly had me fly above him
As he dragged me all about

There was some thunder in the sky
That sure did frighten him
Next think he’s got me almost flying
As I’m hanging on like grim

He stopped at last, I was a mess
All bruised and bleeding some
And me I was so very angry
That he had been so dumb

He looked at me with big sad eyes
Then all that I could do
Was give him a stroke, and a gentle pat
But I’m a softie too.

    Peter, this is charming and amusing. Full of creativity and humor. The reader is smiling and chuckling from beginning to end. Nice job

    dogs can be really stupid sometimes. I had one that would pee right on top of our bed and we had just taken him outside!! I enjoyed this one.

    This was a very sweet story that brought back memories for me. When I was a kid we had a Collie named, "Bear", and he was as gentle as could be, like a big teddy bear! Very nice poem, Peter, I really enjoyed this one!

    My Bear is a Rottty, and they have such a bad reputation, but bear is a big baby, just loves to be hugged. Thanks Kelly for all your comments. they are so appreciated...Peter
