The Pug Comes In on Little Cat Feet

It sits looking

Over Berber and shaggy

On silent haunches

And then moves on

Meaghan C., Reuben’s pug foo is strong but his toe foo defeeted us! Original poem is Fog by Carl Sandburg.

    Love the use of Kibble Cam in this video.

  18. 260Oakley says:

    Kudos to you and to Pyrit for showing such verse-atility.

  19. *stands on chair and applauds*

  20. Please! Love to see what you’d do with it.

    In the meantime, there’s a Mr Skinner in the lobby talking about a control group…

  21. My professional choir has a choral setting of ‘Fog’, of which I am quite fond. Lovely 3-part women (I sing ‘middle’), nicely sonorous and illustrative of the ‘comes…sits…then moves on’ of the poem.

    However! Anybody who thinks that fog comes ‘on little cat feet’ hasn’t heard the little cat feet running around _my_ house at 3:00 am… More like major thunderstorm warnings…

    In my house, that’s referred to as the “dundering third”, and is usually accompanied by snarls and hissing noises.

  23. Lol! I was just thinking this puglet has ham-hocks myself.

  24. Fird Birfle says:

    oooooo 260 now THAT’s an EPIC homerun, ya got, THERE!!!

    *one-person standing ovashe*

  25. Fird Birfle says:

  26. Pianner legs! 😀

  27. victoreia says:

    Only when they bring it onto my bed! Otherwise it’s the old “you kids knock it off!” yell.

  28. Fird Birfle says:

    now, Theresa, you KNOW that it’s indiscreet to refer to body parts, like that!!!
    The term “limbs” is preferred, in order not to corrupt young innocent minds…..

  29. Are you trying to say “Won’t someone think of the puppies!!!??”?

  30. Are you trying to say “Won’t someone think of the puppies!!!??”?
