If . . .

If . . .Many of you may remember the poem “IF” by Rudyard Kipling (reprinted below). Recently, someone asked, “What if a dog had written this?”

Well, of course, MyMagicDog had to take up the challenge! So, we discussed this with our service dog who claims to be a poet himself (hmmm, we’ll let you be the judge). In any case, here is what Mr. Kipling had to say – and the response from our local service dog, Morgan. (Need we say, enjoy!)

    We’ve tried for 13 years to get a grasp of Toby’s knowledge. I hate it when my dog is smarter than I am. He has it ALL figured out. Sigh.

    Kipling’s “If” has been one of my favorite poems and one I often shared with the young men in my college classes. The spin-off is a wonderful parody.

    What fun and right on target! I got a good laugh, Patricia.

    LOVE it! So true.

    Must send this to my son, who of course is also a dog lover.
