A hilarious collection of poetry by dogsperfect for lovers of literature and pups alike

Dogs seldom make passes
At dogs passing gasses.

Are these the words of Dorothy Parker? Ogden Nash?

Nope, the author is Sparky from Milton, Pennsylvania. Sparky, Snowy, Tucker, Louie, these canine laureates have written a volume of poetry displaying the brilliance and wit weve always suspected our dogs were hiding from us. They also, it turns out, revere the human geniuses who came before them, as youll see with There Is No Frigate Like A Pavementan homage to Emily Dickinsonand Do Not Go Gentle. Yes, Dylan Thomas would love it.
