Throw the Damn Ball by R D Rosen, et al


Throw the Damn Ball: Classic Poetry by Dogs by R. D. Rosen, Harry Prichett, and Rob Battles

Let your poetry-loving pooch share the couch for a read-aloud of this collection--poems from the canine perspective accompanied by photos of dogs being dogs. Most of the focus is on food, sticks, toys and body and potty humor--which is where it's at for dogs! Especially fun are the titles or lines that reference famous poems, at least the ones which even I recognized: "Whose Ball This is I Think I Know", "Do not go gentle into that dog run", "I think that I shall never see/ A poem as lovely as a half-eaten sandwich", and from 'Growl': "I saw the best of my generation/ barking madly moonward". Five paws for this one!
