New Tricks I wonder why I keep forgetting: Old dogs can learn New tricks. You’re not a shoe Glunked in a puddle Of squishy mud. You’re like a kite Capable of rising High into the sky. Your dog showed you How it works: That time when he was 7 – almost 50 in dog years! – He could sit still and Let you comb his hair. It’s the anticipating Of the treat, The little joy that emerges If you just push through.
