#NationalDogDay For Fen & Petals August 26

Fen and Petals (2)

He’s dark,
although

Fensitively playful
he’s a son of a bitch
golden, but he has
wild plays
barked upon the field stage
with romping floppy ears
and a dear puppy attitude
retrieving a Labradorean
heritage cool

His Father it is said
was a shepherd who liked lamb chops,
but then in fending for himself

Fen will some day
wolf down Wiener schnitzel
romping with élan and bark

Sister Petals is a dog too
whose nickname is Flower Child,
but she knows she’s a dog
because she knows
how to fight Fen
with gentle teeth-to-teeth,
mouth-to-mouth, and
the canine literati
call her a wag, but

though play is like an apéritif,
lately, he’s been of-Fen-sive
getting under Petals’ belly
and knocking her over; oh no,
but she’s learned a de-Fen-se:
a self-imperative,”Petals down”

Soon dog treats are found, they
bounding into the kitchen

Petals Is a Dog Whose Nickname Is Flower Child

Petals er en hund, hvis kaldenavn er Blomst Barn,
men hun ved, hun er en hund,
fordi hun ved, hvordan man kæmper Fen
med blide tænder til tænder, mund til mund,
og hunde litteraturen kalder hende klog hale.

Google translation:
Petals is a dog whose nickname is Flower Child,
but she knows she’s a dog,
because she knows how to fight Fen
with gentle teeth to mouth, mouth to mouth,
and the dog’s literature calls her clever tail.

Vicarious Dog

She likes to bark
to have long walks
in larking parks, but

not so keen about
walking in tornadoes

so she stays with me
and watches TV until
the birds chirp their
approval for the day
