Man's best friend. An always faithful ally.Whether the dog is domesticated as a pet and there to enjoy life with a family or as a work-dog herding sheep, helping to hunt, police or guard, the dog has proved time and time again to have many invaluable uses. They come in all shapes and sizes from sought after breeds to lowly mongrels each with an array of qualities that give them distinct personalities. From earliest times dogs have been able to find a unique place fulfilling the needs of their keepers and often there is equal devotion from master to servant. A dog's life no longer has to have negative connotations as so many pooches are loved, extravagantly fed, groomed, petted and pawed over, all perhaps more than our fellow man. Dogs were even worshipped as deities in Mesopotamian times and across several cultures and civilisations including Hindu, Chinese and Greek, they are the helpers, the watchers or guardians of sacred or sensitive sites. Between then and now poets have written verse, both serious and humorous, in attempts to keep a poetic track both of feelings and as a tribute to our four-legged friends and their adventures.1 - The Poetry of Dogs - An Introduction2 - A Friendly Welcome by Lord Byron3 - A Popular Personage At Home by Thomas Hardy4 - The Power of the Dog by Rudyard Kiping5 - Verse for a Certain Dog by Dorothy Parker6 - The Best Friend by Meribah Abbott7 - The Joy of a Dog by Edgar Albert Guest8 - Dog by Harold Munro9 - My Comforter by Anonymous10 - Four Feet.
