The Dog Blog returns…with a Snake Poem!

Here I am again, Bobby the Coolest Dog in the Blogosphere! Now my mum Sarah Brennan tells me that the deadline for the Snake Poem Competition is this Friday 7th June, so I thought it was about time I entered myself (being a famous dog poet, as we all know).

So here’s my poem…and if I don’t win the Competition I’m going to be seriously mad at my Mum and might not wag my tail at her for at least a week – so there!!


Snakes don’t like dogs – it’s plain to see

For rarely do they both agree:

A dog loves humans; snakes do not

A dog likes cool; a snake likes hot

A dog is bouncy, soft and round;

A snake lies cold against the ground

A dog can fetch a stick and play;

A snake just sleeps or slides away

And yet despite our different ways

I have to give the snake due praise

For once its heart’s no longer tickin’

I’m told a snake tastes just like chicken!

Bobby Dazzler,  Dog Poet Extraordinaire

Now if I can write a poem SO CAN YOU! So if you haven’t got your entry into my Mum’s Clever Competition yet, you’d better get cracking and send it in by this Friday! All the rules and information are on the Clever Competition page above.
