My Dog Rover

Today is the day,
I will give my dog away.
I wonder if he's sick,
or if he's too lazy to play.
I called the vet,
$80 I cannot pay.
My dog, my favorite pet,
he does not want to play fetch.
He never likes to get wet,
today he doesn't want to play catch.
I tell him to roll over,
that he doesn't even want to do.
When I call my dog Rover,
he gives me the puppy face too.
Maybe he's over fed.
I don't see him  wagging his tail,
he just lays there in bed.
Should I call the Dog Catcher,
so he can stop playing dead.

 Sid & Son

    aww poor pups, it is a bummer when our furry friends get old and move on. I did enjoy your poem though, it had a nice beat to it that made a depressing situation not so bad.

    Wow,So so sad. I lost my Molly almost 15 years ago, and I'm still not over it. Don't ever take for granted the time you have. I can still see her puppy dog face in my mind. Best wishes to you and rover
