In Honor of National Dog Day: My Dog May Be a Genius

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.

You can adopt a genius dog in my etsy shop:
