Kaboodle the Poodle

Dear Humane Society,

I am at the end of my leash as I throw my paws up in the air.

Daily I am tortured by a flashy millionaire.

Does anyone really care? (Oodles of poodles all over the world are scared!)

It’s RRRRuff being a poodle I think that you’ll agree.

Especially when your master works in cosmetology.

It’s egg yolks each day at breakfast to maintain a healthy coat.

Nutritious snacks like frozen green beans that get stuck right in your throat!

My nails are groomed, my teeth are brushed, and for 4 more hours I hear her discuss

How my hair will be groomed for the AKC show. 

And to top it off, I’ve got to wear that ridiculous pink bow!

 Please help. My paws are tied.
“Kaboodle the Poodle,” the best of  the show

Written for Tanya Harrington's Dog Gone Tales Contest

    Hi Gwendolen I like this very much, they say it's a dogs life but I sometimes wonder how they feel, good look in the comp, all the best Owen

    Humane Society: Dear Kaboodle, I feel your pain of eating raw eggs from someone insane. They have no idea just what they are doing. With all that pink ribbon and all that phoo phooing. All I can say is hang on to this hope.That when you get bathed, they rinse all the soap. For there's no flea powder that's made for that itch. When soap dries and flakes, it can be quite a ......! :) Enjoyed your very funny poem Gwendolen. Roof!

    Very clever personification. Poor doggy. Love this Gwen. And writing a lot of haiku does not make one a master, most of them are not all that great. I am still learning. But thanks, you made me feel good.

    Dog gone it, this is a very clever write! Being doted on and pampered wouldn't always be a happy trip for Kaboodle the Poodle.:) Reminds me of the vanity contests they have for small children, I think parents and owners alike, feel they are the ones being judged. Participants must feel like they're victims. Best wishes, love, Mikki

    I wish I could get doted on like Kaboodle the Poodle! Yes, they are the victims when their masters take it to the max! Thanks, Mikki...
