A Poem for Rumpy by duG Nap

I follow artist and all-around creative fellow Dug Nap on Facebook. Recently he challenged his audience to post photos, and he would write a poem about what he saw.

I posted this photo.

Here’s Dug’s poem:

Doggie Eyes

by Dug Nap

I’m just a good dog
laying here on the floor
watching my human
and waiting for them
to take me outdoors

maybe if i look
at them with
my nice doggie eyes
maybe, just maybe
they’ll take me outside

‘cause i need to
chase rabbits
i need to chase squirrels
i really need to smell
all the smells in the world

and houses are cool
and houses are comfy
and they do
have a bathroom
but that’s not where i pee

yeah, I’m just a good dog
laying here on the floor
watching my human
waiting for them
to take me outdoors

Isn’t Dug Nap amazing? I became fascinating with his work when I won this print in an auction.

He has lots of great dog-related art work available.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERADon’t worry, cat lovers, you aren’t left out. I also have this print.

You can get your own print at dugnap.com.
