To All Four-legged AND Two-legged


Hello to all four-legged and two-legged friends in the big world
The people who take care of us, do not know as much as they think
We are probably smarter than they are
Take for example, that little cell phone that our people
always have with them wherever they go
What we do.....lift the foot and "send a message" to a friend
When I am out and walking with my people I get many interesting "messages"
Some "messages" are very interesting and take a little longer time to "read"
Then my people impatient, pulling and struggling the leash
What they can not understand that I must "answer" to all "messages"
Our "conversations" and "messages" are equally important
Think about it....they are also free....there is no expense
When their cell phone call or pling they take time to respond
Hello all two-legged humans our messages are just as important as yours

    How right you are. I read a lot of books on animals and their care and treatment. One thing that was really important was to let your dog take time to sniff and leave his mark because it is important to his self esteem. They learn from this what other animals dogs, cats, birds, gophers, etc have been by that spot and then they leave the message that they were there too. It also gives them something to think about. Good job here. God Bless, JB

    Anne, I like your original and well written take on this somewhat offbeat subject. I admire writers who can put a new slant on things. Well done!

    What a great poem. I read it to my pups, yes I am weird, and they loved it. Perhaps the dogs know more than we do. At least mine, at times, know more than I. Take care and xoxo, Jancarl

    Hi Anne Lise - I like this unique poem written in the point of view of a pet who sees everyone through the number of legs they have and sees them as friends. You have a very inspiring imagination. I enjoy your perspective(s) you share with everyone. Thanks for taking the time to read my poems and for letting me know that you like them. Gail
