Canine Poet Speaks Up About Other Poets

In Canine Poet, Canine Poetry, Poetry on April 3, 2016 at 11:30 am

ZoeyBed1This week I’m going to defer to my BFF Shelley, because she blogged about poetry.

I’ve written a couple of poems as a canine poet, but I don’t really know what to say about poetry. I do know that poetry, like green lawns, can be a thing of beauty for running and playing with words, smells and sounds.

Poetry has rhythm and meter, just like I do when I get going around the yard, chasing circles as I try to capture the sounds of birds and wildlife into the sight of friendship, but the animals usually don’t want to play with me.

From my backyard, going-on-walks and being-around-town experience, I’ve learned cats generally don’t like dogs, and dogs, which, if they’re bigger than me, don’t like me (or is it the other way around?). I bark at them to let them know I am the bigger dog, except they look at me like, Are you kidding?

As I bark, I wag my tail as Shelley says, “Zoey, that’s not how you make friends.”

So how do you make friends? I hope I can find them in poetry, or in life as I try out the sounds and beauty of language.

Cute dachshund shares all

In Being Cute, Cute Dachshunds, Cute Dogs on February 21, 2016 at 11:30 am

I would like to share some photos of my cute self. I am a very cute dachshund that gets lots of attention for my cuteness. I consider myself the CEO and COO of the word “cute.”

Here I am being loved by my BFF Shelley:

Here is a closeup photo of me to better demonstrate my cuteness (I’m tucked in bed):

Loving your dog on Valentine’s Day

In Loving Your Dog, The need for spoiling, Treating Your Dog Well, Valentine's Day on February 14, 2016 at 11:30 am

ZoeyModelToday is Valentine’s Day, and that means you should love your dog, cat or pet—I mean extra, not just ordinary.

I like the extra love because I’m an extra cute dachshund with big brown eyes and a big heart.

I love lots of people and greet everyone with a tail wag, jumps in the air and, if they let me, kisses. I love other animals (except big dogs). And I even love cats.

To show us love on Valentine’s Day, the big day of romance, card giving and candy, give us our own valentine.

Here are some suggestions I have:

  • Give us an extra special treat (I like rawhides, heated-up milk bones and pepperoni sticks).
  • Give us extra long playtime, because play is good for mental stimulation and physical exercise.
  • Take us on an extra walk, because we love to explore smells, or let us run extra long, because again the smells are fascinating and running is something we love to do.
  • Take us somewhere that allows pets, such as a coffee shop or retail store, so that we can spend extra time with you and meet new people.
  • Spend extra time with us, just because you love us and we love you back.
  • And a present would be nice, too. I like stuffed animals, balls to chew up (not to chase) and Nylabones (I really, really like to chew, even though I’m six and not a puppy anymore).

Lastly, say that you love us and that we’re cute in the lovey-dovey voice, because we do understand.

Work-life balance (or seeking pets)

In Being Cute, Shelley and Zoey, Shelley Widhalm on October 4, 2015 at 5:30 am

I am seeking attention, and I get it, because I'm really cute!

I am seeking attention, and I get it, because I’m really cute!

I love to get attention, and I love to get pets, so what I do is hang out with my BFF Shelley as she writes and stare down the passersby.

As they approach, I sit taller and wiggle my tail, focusing my attention on them, as if I’m saying, “Here I am, here I am.”

Seventy-five percent of the time—this is when Shelley and I are at the coffee shop and she’s writing and I’m on the lookout—people stop and say, “Isn’t she cute?” They pause, and Shelley—thankfully—asks them if they want to pet me. And they usually say yes, and I always say yes.

They stop, and I get the attention I need and deserve.

I hear things like I’m a magnet, I’m pretty, I’m beautiful, I have a cute face, I’m darling, and I’m lovable. I’m such a lover. I’m a good girl.

In fact, I’m the cutest dachshund ever. Wouldn’t you agree from seeing my pictures?

I am cute hanging out on my bed with my teddy bear.

Photos of a very cute dachshund named Zoey

In Cute Dogs, Shelley and Zoey, Shelley Widhalm on August 16, 2015 at 11:30 am

I would like to share some photos of cute, darling, adorable, pretty, beautiful me.

Hello there. I am very cute, don't you think?

Hello there. I am very cute, don’t you think?

Hi again! I'm cute here, too, in my pajamas, though my expression is a bit grumpy. You see, I don't really like to have clothes on, because I'm a dog.

Hello, hello, hello. See how cute I am? Now you should pet and love me!

Cute Dog Contests

In Cute Dogs, Dog Contests on April 5, 2015 at 11:30 am

Don't I look extra cute in my hat? Yes, I do!

Don’t I look extra cute in my hat? Yes, I do!

If I were to enter a contest (I entered one and lost but I think that was a mistake), I would be declared the cutest dachshund, or really the cutest dog, to have ever lived.

My name is Zoey. I am six. And I am a long-haired miniature dachshund who loves everybody and is loved by everybody.

What makes me lovable?

Well, for one I’m cute.

Two, I ask for attention by wiggling my tail, looking up at the person until they see me and acknowledge my existence and cuteness factor, and once attention ensues, rolling on my side to show my belly (indicating that, yes, I want to be petted).

I have big brown eyes, long black-tipped ears and a fluffy tail, making me pretty, cute and adorable all in one puppy package.

I also am cute when I stand on my hind legs and cross my paws, indicating I want something. I can sit, lie down, spin or look pretty. But I won’t shake. These are some of my tricks. Nothing too fancy, but they show that I’m a good listener, a skill that’s important for being lovable and loved.

In conclusion, I need to be loved, liked and told I’m cute, because I am.

Thanks.

There is no way you can critique my cuteness. It’s a matter of being positively adorable, as you can see in these photos.

I look cute in my mechanics shirt. I know how to fix broken hearts with my love!

I look cute when I have a bow in my fur.

Doggie Blogger can’t think

In All About Me, Being Cute, Shelley Widhalm on September 14, 2014 at 11:30 am

I am feeling a little frustrated about not having anything to write about right now.

I am feeling a little frustrated about not having anything to write about right now.

I am feeling a little Blank right now for writing ideas. I am just a dog after all. So, here’s a cute photo of me and a link to my BFF Shelley’s blog about avoiding writing and what to do about it.
