Throw the Damn Ball: Classic Poetry by Dogs

by Rob Battles, Harry Prichett and R. D. Rosen

Do you think your dog would be a great poet? Well, this hilarious collection of poetry by dogs agrees, and it's perfect for lovers of literature and pups alike.

“Dogs seldom make passes
At dogs passing gasses.”

Are these the insightful words of Dorothy Parker? Ogden Nash?

Nope, the author is Sparky, from Milton, Pennsylvania. Sparky, Snowy, Tucker, Louie; these canine laureates have composed a rich 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 man-beast 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 absolutely love it.
