The death of a dog
All dog lovers will understand Ted Kooser's (The Dispatch, American Life in Poetry, 9/8/17) reaction to his loss. Here is a response to his "Death of a Dog."
There was once a loving Great Dane
Who taught us to be happy again.
But no matter how sweet
His heart had irregular beat.
Now only his memories remain.
