Great Dane Eats 431/2 Pairs Of Socks


The excuse that the dog ate my homework usually is to ridicule subject
Very quickly the excuse of the student is in deep reject
Dogs are meat eaters and would not lust for paper
Or engage to the dismay of their master in such a caper
Maybe homework turned in with some chew marks a teacher would believe
And the impending F might with pleading be relieved
But now in the news a rush to judgment on what a dog might eat
The canine menu may not be limited to common doggy treats
The news out of Portland is that of a Great Dane
Who suddenly seemed listless, energy in wane
Off quickly went owners and dog to the vet
To be greeted by a sight never to forget
Quickly into canine OR and after surgery came the total shock
Out of the Great Dane came 43 ½ pairs of socks!
Next time your sock drawer seems a wee bit short
Be concerned if your pet in the bedroom was seen to cavort
