Fictional poem of a dog I often see.

My dog has three legs

and uses them well

not only to get around

but get sympathy and how.

But watch him perform

bad habits he had em all

still cocks his leg

and has a fall,

attempts to scratch

with no leg there

people watch confused

as he seems to groan

when all the time

nothings there.

But you watch him run

thats his special feat

cant do a straight line

with only three feet,

always to right

off he errs

confuses the cats

who watch bemused.

But a three legged dog

he is still the same

and thats the way

he will remain.

Cute,I know this was done in humor, but I did have a cat of many years that I made a walker for when she lost the use of her hind legs from a stroke. Think I did a pretty good job for her too. She could not jump any more, but she could still walk and followed me everywhere...

Be always safe,
Karen
