Phoenix the dawg

Phoenix the dawg

There in my yard is a dawg name 
One stubborn black bitch
Easily identified by her signature hind 
Now, is not that she's without redeeming qualities
But that dawg no matter how you call har 
she seems hard of hearing
While it well known that's a choice she is making
Cause the merest sound har ear perk,
she jump up and start barking
Phoenix the real mix I love to say 
But jah know, dis dawg personify 
the adjective play
I leave her sometimes under a mango 
tree loosely chain 
Where her kennel is to cover her when 
it rain
A piece of work she is even when she is 
on rein 
Cause har mouth nuh cry quit, she get wey under mi van already and bite the wiring to 
total disarray
Yet, phoenix is a unique dawg, 
black as midnight with a face like a
happy smile....wg

Phoenix sounds like a dawg I would love. From your description she is a Lab. Scout, my red tick American Coon Hound would have fun with her. When dogs dig holes and tear things up it's because they are bored. Take her for a run every day and she will be very happy. Good stuff here my friend. God Bless, JB

I love how this has colloquial speech. I feel like I am hearing it read by a southern guy with a great sense of humor.

Well done and Phoenix sounds like a really sweet dog I would love to have. When they dig and chew it's because they are bored and need something to occupy their active mind. Don't leave her in solitary confinement. Bring her in and let her live with you and take her for a walk once a day. They need to get out and see something besides the back yard too. Good write here. God Bless my friend and thanks for the lovely review. JB

Awe, sounds like she’s a handful of companion. Beautifully done!

This made me smile because I am an animal lover for sure. Especially dawgs and cats. I have a red tick American Coon Hound and he won't come when you call him either unless food is involved. Nice job. God Bless, JB
