A hilarious collection of poetry by dogs- perfect for lovers of literature and pups alike "Dogs seldom make passesAt dogs passing gasses." Are these the words of Dorothy Parker? Ogden Nash? Nope, the author is Sparky from Milton, Pennsylvania. Sparky, Snowy, Tucker, Louie, these canine laureates have written a volume of poetry displaying the brilliance and wit we've always suspected our dogs were hiding from us. They also, it turns out, revere the human geniuses who came before them, as you'll see with "There Is No Frigate Like A Pavement" - an homage to Emily Dickinson - and "Do Not Go Gentle." Yes, Dylan Thomas would love it.
