The Pink Black Golden - Poem by Tony Jolley

Got a Golden non-Retriever:
Goes and gets it
But can’t be bothered to bring it back.

Noticed her nose turning pink from black,
Then that there seemed to be a series of stitch marks
Attaching it to her muzzle.

“Our dog’s got a sewn-on nose! ”, I said…
Then the realisation dawned:
The nose is fine ………
We’ve got a sewn-on dog!

    Yep...Our Cassie's nose used to be as black as a shiny toe-cap but turned pink. (It's a Retriever/Labrador thing) . It's when her fur turns pink you've got to worry. (Report) Reply
