My Dog May Be a Genius


by Jack Prelutsky
My dog may be a genius,
and in fact there’s little doubt.

He recognizes many words,
unless I spell them out.

If I so much as whisper “walk,”
he hurries off at once

to fetch his leash…it’s evident
my dog is not a dunce.

I can’t say “food” in front of him,
I spell f-o-o-d,

and he goes wild unless I spell
his t-r-e-a-t.

But recently this tactic
isn’t working out too well.

I think my d-o-g has learned
to s-p-e-l-l.

  1. Our dog,
    well he never says much
    But he's mighty cute
    and soft to the touch.
    What his namesake might say
    we would so like to know...
    That's because our dog
    Is a little toy Bo

    We love our toy Bo dog, and we LOVE your dogs!
