Ode to a Lost Stick

Has this ever happened to you? Has your human ever tossed your stick in a tree?
Does he think I'm a *&!@$squirrel@$#!*%! ???
I think I have to give Daddy! some more lessons in stick tossing.

Oh stick, sweet stick,
Where for art thou stick?
Are you in a tree?
Are you set free,
from me?
Did you get tossed,
and then lost?
He who threw you,
Made me so blue,
Until he found a new you.

I'll never forget you, dear stick-in-a-tree.


  1. I play & walk with 2 golden retrievers, Molly & Cooper, and they are very expressive, out-going dogs especially when I toss balls in their backyard because I am sometimes the worst ball-thrower ever. The balls land in bushes, on their roof, in the name it! I am sure they wonder if I think they are squirrels from time to time! Very funny poem and blog today!

  2. I know exactly how you feel Claire! My Mom once threw my bone on the roof and I had to wait for Dad to get home and save me.

  3. I gave you a blog award from Macy's Puppy Tales, check it out!

  4. Ooh! Thank you for the blog award!

    Hi Farley!

    HI to Molly & Cooper!
