Canine Grins on the Dog Trail

By Kevin Rottweiler
 

 

Dedication

This poetry collection is dedicated to Jo Jo the American Bulldog, a good friend

 

 

Canine Grins

Humorous hams

With coats like lambs

Sweating from tongues and paws

Canine grins

On the dog trail

A life expectancy of

Continual ecstasy

Eating from dog bowls

Ice cream and meat

Brushing against trees

Fighting tics and fleas

Canine grins

On the dog trail

Labradors as big as horses

Seeking water

Never a lake big enough

To contain them

A dog party

With a life expectancy of

Continual ecstasy

Canine grins

On the dog trail

 

Comment: Our God is a God that loves nature and all the animals

 

 

 

Nature

Poodles marking

With urine

Legs raised

The dog trail blazed

A benediction of

Dogs welcome

Lady bugs

Conceal inner thoughts

As dragon flies

Thunder in a new day

Poodles like old

Rich ladies

Wearing bonnets

Pink and powder blue

Hats

And nature has its way

Life becomes mature

As bees pollinate the fields

A continuum of green

Now a mosquito blinks

And his eternity lasts

But a second

As they wait on God

As they wait on

Mother Nature

Comment: No creation is insignificant to God; look at how small a lady bug is

 

 

 

Many Dogs

On the trail

It never fails

Coming around

The corner

Dogs, so many dogs

Of all shape and form

About forty of them

A canine pack

Beagles encounter

Snowflakes

A new scent

German Shepherds

Are alert and guarding

Others dig in happiness

Laying down in

The cool earth

Hot breath and desires

Golden Retrievers

On the trail

It never fails

Coming around

The corner

Dogs

Of all shape and form

Comment: Look at how many dogs and species of animals there are

 

 

 

Leashes on the Nail

Like a snowy day in Vermont

Outside the chimneys

Seem to preach a sermon

And there are dog leashes

Hanging on the nail

Frosty paws wander

Sled dogs of the north

Living in a middle class home

Our sanctuary of Huskies

And the frosty breath of warm dogs

A shiny blistery winter came quick

But we got warmed by the sun

Just as eternal youth plays

Outside like children

Your soul can be resurrected

Yes it can

And there are dog leashes

Hanging on the nail

Meaty / hungry / salivating

Dogs / dogs / dogs

….like a pat on their backs

And there is no break

From winter

Only Mother Nature’s hand

Comes this close

But we are indoors now

And you can smell

Peanut butter cookies

And the tongues cry out

Pink and ready

Comment: God loves his children, taking part in outdoor activities

 

 

 

Pit Bull Grandma

Pit Bull grandma

Was a tough old lady

With a rake and garden

And she loved her Pit Bull dogs

Oh yes, what a day it is

When grandma and the dogs play outside

Big goofy grins

The dogs shout out swear words

And grandma fights them

With a plastic toy rake

That children use

A sweet tug of war, with grandma

And she provides love

The dogs provide love

The days are filled

With retirement in

Her old bones

And old dog bones

Buried underneath

The potted plants

Several of the Pit Bulls

Buried outside

And the other dogs

Seem to sniff the earth

And kiss the spot

Where they are

And grandma tells

The dogs

That Heaven will be good

Comment: God is age caring & multi-generational, loves kids & senior citizens too!

 

 

 

The Dock

Peering over a wooden ledge

Reflections of new minnows

Down below in the cold water

Shiny bellies like tin foil

Strong-willed fish

Now Labrador heads pop up

From underneath the water

Running along the shore

Littered only by dead fish and colorful stones

An eternal sky of blue

Makes one peaceful

Blue jeans are the dress code here

Cold puddles on dog paws

A kaleidoscope of colors

As clouds even yawn

Dog heads pop out

From automobile windows

Taking just one more glance

Going home for a supper

Of meat

Comments: Amazing, the kaleidoscope of colors that God has given us

 

 

 

Trail Was Humid

Mosquitoes and gnats

Landing on perspiring arms

Holding onto dog leashes

In the early part of the day

Such a privilege to help

Homeless and abandoned dogs

As horses frolic next door

Trees so tall

Skyscrapers of nature

Each one a life force

Soothing the soil

Nurturing the black earth

Preparing the way for a new birth

Even spiders ask universal questions

But you just fight the humidity here

And golden Labradors yawn

Trying to stay moist

Carrying a water bottle

Comments: Imagine the size of Heaven, and the skyscrapers that will be there

 

 

 

Soaked in Rain

The rain poured down

As I watched water droplets

Run off this old parka

The temperature is in the seventies

No worry of chilling pneumonia

Just holding onto Buttercup

A sweet American Bulldog

A big dog with big feet

Dancing in puddles

Like a school girl

Wearing a transparent raincoat

With those yellow smiling faces

But the abandonment of a dog

Is why we are

Soaked in the rain

A life of abuse and pain

Have to find homes

For these dogs hopefully

Comments: The rain is like a sweet baptism; every day is new when we seek Christ

 

 

 

Toy Dogs

The little ones

Scissors and snappers

No obedience

Running wild

Life a spoiled child

Wearing checkerboard outfits

And sitting on their rear ends

Lazy and lazier

Toy dogs

They come from rich homes

No obedience

To a dog shelter

As if they are being punished

Sent to a dog shelter

The little ones

Scissors and snappers

No obedience

Comments: Jesus loves the little children; we are His children also

 

 

 

Blind Dog

I remember this good boy

A blind Springer Spaniel

All alone in his cage

With mopped wet floors

And he was in the dark

With the door closed

And I felt his warm heart

He heard my footsteps

He smelled my scent

A life all gone and bent

On blindness

But so much kindness

Rolling on his back

A wonderful love attack

Holding up his paws

A smile coming back

From his sweet candy jaws

Belly up and so submissive

And I loved him

I just loved him

For a very short time

With a tear in my eye

Comment: Jesus made a blind man see; He cares for you spiritually and physically

 

 

 

Frosty Paws

Frosty paws

And hungry jaws

Dogs wagging tails

Exuberant

Absolute

Huskies and Malamutes

Northern dogs

Some from the USA

Some from Canada

Where the snow falls hard

Labradors in waterfalls

Those that enjoy the outdoors

Frosty paws

And hungry jaws

Comments: In Christ we are in the Light; and there will be no cold, only His warmth & love

 

 

 

 

Pig Skin Puppies

Little baby dogs

Pit Bull Terriers

Wearing pig skins

Leather jackets

Tough little dogs

Shiny eye buttons

American Bulldogs

Tough little dogs

Wearing pig skins

Tails propelling

Like airplane rudders

The ship

Ready

To set sail

A life of no avail

Little baby dogs

Tough little dogs

Comments: We can be tough like Jesus, when He cleared the temple of money scammers; and when he climbed many mountains to pray— what an awesome God

 

 

 

Rainbow Tuesday

Rainy Tuesday

Better wear your boots

The dog trail

Is slippery

Only Mother Nature

Yawns

Moans

Groans

Dumping buckets

Of wet water

Better wear your boots

The dog trail

Is slippery

Now the rainbow

Puts a smile of peppermint

On Mother Nature’s jaws

Comments: God is never slippery when He answers prayers; He gets right down to business!

 

 

 

Dogs in Cages

Big meaty dogs

Dogs in cages

All lined up

Canine grins

Goofy grins

Each one gets

A biscuit

Maybe two

Made a friend

For life

A relationship forever

 

 

 

First Snow

Play bow

At the first snow

Tickling and massaging

A dog’s belly

Smiling like jelly

The play bow

At the first snow

 

 

 

Falling Leaves

Falling leaves

And colorful trees

A day of autumn

In the Midwest

Cheerful dogs

Deer Scent

Dogs, so alert—

Among the deer

Birch trees are slender

With eyes of trust

The dogs abstain

From seeking

Fast moving animals

The sound of a fresh snow

Keeps the forest alive

 

 

 

Log Cabins

In the distance

The smoldering fireplace

Of a log cabin

And I see icicles

Hanging down

Downspouts cry out

For more frozen rain

All yielding to

Spring’s touch

Very soon

 

 

 

Magic Poodles

The Poodles

So groomer oriented

Like magic she

Cuts curls

From grinning canines

September Rain

Nobody is hurried around here

It is raining outside again

Skies of dark clouds shiver

Wetness astounds the greasy meadow

Water again pounds

On dog backs

But waterproof coats

Laugh at Mother Nature

The sky easily yawns

Takes a break now

It is September rain

And the school bus

Splashes in a quick run

Vines and bushes

Flowers and the forest

Huddles around a Labrador

The dog so intelligent

Of Mother Nature

Lazy tail

Propelling tail

Swinging at raindrops

Like a baseball player

September rain

Is not cold

Comments: Remember school days? It is amazing how far God has brought us

 

 

 

Dog Coats

As the snow comes down

Like in a Norman Rockwell painting

Dog coats capture my eyes

Dogs wearing winter outfits

Administering love everywhere

Like children they smile

And you have to button them up

With frosty paws

And canine grins

They seem to catch snowflakes

On their pink tongues

The peppermint winds

Remind us of Christmas again

The sounds of December

On a quiet nature trail

Makes a glistening noise

And you can hear the dogs bark

In the background noise

And they all parade

Wearing checkerboard dog coats

Wearing plaid dog coats

Made by hand

By a nice lady

Comments: We can put on the “Armor of God” to protect ourselves

 

 

 

Hamburger Cookout

On the back porch

We had a hamburger cookout

Even the cockroaches got excited

Termites turned their little heads

Peeping from wood holes

Now the smell of the grill

Was fabulous

The German Shepherds salivated

A Cocker Spaniel danced

All the dogs celebrated

A party of mustard on whiskers

Onions on pink tongues

Don’t tell the veterinarian

About the spices that are

Bad for dogs

They lined up

All the dogs in the neighborhood

Wearing bows and colorful clothing

No ticket to enter the party

High fives and paw shakes

Even the backyard dandelions

And the trees shake

Awaiting the meal of

Hamburgers and beefcakes

The sweet grill permeated

Its sweet charcoal taste

Into the air

And every dog

Was as hungry

As a bear

Comments: Imagine eating a breakfast of fish & bread on the beach with Christ
