All I want from Christmas Eve reindeer
A basset hound puppy to revere
With a Rudolph nose
To elf size she grows
Jingle bell stepping on her own ears!

Bailey is getting worse
Her illness is cancer
She is brought to the vet
We gather around the bed
Everyone pets Bailey
With tears being shed
Everyone says goodbye
While the vet doctor

A Basset Hound so sweet
She will be missed by love ones

Bailey The Whining Basset Hound
A dog named Bailey
Is a basset hound
She would eat all day
If it could be done

She always wants food
Her stomach is never full
At night when tired 
Her bed is made up

In the laundry room
a gate to block the door
the whines to...Read More

As the second hand ticks away my breaths
a half-clad moon catches my eye.
Was a time when I might've seen
the ghost of half-eaten melon,
but I'm older now, my thoughts less spry.
Dark fear's hobgoblins
were long since relegated
to memory's chuckle drawer;
open windows to...Read More

a quietly united friendship
me and my spaghetti sandwich
watching you plant flowers grown by your tears
me and my four cheese garlic bread
watching you climb a tree inspired by an untold loss
me and my brown sugar bacon baked beans
watching you listen to your basset hound...Read More

Paper Doll
 Once upon a time
There was a little paper doll
She lived in a paper house
Made of paper walls

She had a paper mom
She had a paper dad
And a little paper basset hound
All wrinkled up and sad

To be a fine poet, I am properly suited
With an imagination which is astounding
Like some fathers who were to be founding.

Who had continuously been messing around
He...Read More

Premium Member Why Most Chickens Don't Snore

Could there possibly be a single topic
I haven't as yet explored
The love life of the lowly earthworm
Or why most chickens don't snore

And have you ever considered this
Why dogs and household cats
Never wear off the shoulder evening gowns
Nor do horses as...Read More

Since moving to our brand new home
There's things I haven't found

And Dufus our basset hound

Till I find 'em gonna use lots of cologne
And carry a...Read More

bearing its staggeringly spectacular array of

“Who’s the boss ?” I heard her say.

when you force me off the chair.
You leave the room to get a drink,
