Like Dog, Like Daughter

dog daughter

The kinship between my dog and daughter
A flourishing mutual flame
But I’m a spot concerned you see
They’re a bit too much the same

Saliva stretching downward
From either of their chops
On all fours they explore the room
Dribble lands in drops

Dinner made, it’s steaming
Roast beef and a roux
Sitting patiently at my feet
A hungry audience of two

They crawl away together
Shuffling, bottoms bare
Both crawl to the dog bowl
To splash water everywhere

The duo’s off to bed now
To dreams they both submit
Soon they’ll wake and play again
Impossible to split

  1. That’s adorable. I love the thought of a baby and dog staring up at someone cooking. Must be great to have a dog that plays with the baby like that.

  2. Just how a dog and a child should be, best friends. Love it.

  3. what a heartwarming poem 🙂 happy little duo 🙂
