18 Poems about pets My Dog My dog is the cleverest animal of all. He doesn’t just chase and catch a ball.With eyes open wide,He hunts when I hide.He does wonderful tricks,Builds me camps out of sticks.He’d never bark or bite,And he doesn’t like to fight.My dog is my very best friend,And I’ll look after him until the end.
