Sammi, SOL 12 of 31

I am a petite
Great Dane/Lab

I love people
I am a bully

I sit and wait
Watching out the picture window.

My head on your knee
I look longingly at you

And in my eyes
You see I adore you.

I tremble in fear
As thunder fills the air

I become jealous and insecure

Blind Lady and I fight
for dominance.

You rejected me
When I hurt her

When the others need you
I  find you.

Once I went wandering
Spending the night in doggy jail

You searched for me
When I was lost

You found me
I was so excited

Know one could doubt
I  love you.



  1. Your love for your dog is obvious in the way that you alternate between perspectives--your own and your dog's. Really fun to read.

  2. I love the dog's view - so much love and emotion for life.

    A petite Great Dane? Isn't that an oxymoron? :)

  3. Thank you. One of these days I would like to try a poem for 2 voices.

  4. Ah, I know this dog, so great. Love, love, love.

  5. I love how this reflects a dog-human relationship and voice so well! My dogs have spent many a night in the "doggy jail." I've always wondered what kinds of things go on in their heads in these kind of experiences.

  6. Sweet to tell from the dog's point of view. How loyal they always are. I've had my 'granddog' here this week, Truman, a Bernese Mountain Dog-the nicest dog-140+ pounds but wants to be in your lap! Thanks, Ruth!
