The Perfect Dog
My son asked a question as little boys do
Of me in my wisdom and all that I knew.
Is there a dog that is perfect? he asked on a whim,
Well, I thought and I thought about where to begin.
Hed have ears that were floppy
or cropped and alert
And eyes that were sleepy or perky and pert,
Hed leap like a bunny or sit in your lap
And run fast as horses or opt for a nap.
A dog that is perfect would be covered in spots
Or maybe one-color and then have spots-not.
Hed be small as a teacup
or big as a house,
With a nose that seemed flattened or long like a mouse,
Hed swim and hed hunt with a coat flying free
Or be dainty and delicate and Hed be a She
As I struggled to answer, and not with a clue,
My son, with a smile, said, out of the blue,
With the wisdom of children, what he already knew
The dog that is perfect is the one next to you.
