My Dog Is An Excellent Student - Poem by Cameron Gallant

I tell my dog to sit and stay
My dog, he never ever obeys
So I take out a can of Puppy Chow Gourmet
And lay it gently in his way

Then I tell him again, “Sit and stay!
I’m going outside but you can’t come today”
And he sits and he smiles and eats for a while
As I head on my merry way
