The Lucid Legend of Zacky P

Fireblossom (shay) has the word list at Real Today.  This is in doggo language, well known on the internet for us doggo followers.

The Lucid Legend of Zacky P
“If there are no dogs in Heaven, then when I die I want to go where they went.” —Will Rogers

He was a sweet boi in a cage –
love at first sight
between this pupper and hooman.
with no further folderol
him went home with hooman
and instaneous became the king of the castle.
frosty paws and treatos and chimken nuggers –
Zacky Peanut did a fist pump
and the hokey pokey
and with much derring-do
began chasing squirbos and rattos
and other doggos in hims yard.
Him did not pontificate but told immediate –
Dis my yard! Out!
Him snugged with his hooman
and with much operatic barks
cleared his yard.
Him snugged with his hooman
and chased squirbos in his sleep
totes froshusly.
Now him lies sleeping next to his hooman
and dreaming dreams of lollipops
and frosty paw flavored blancmange.
A photo-op for his auntie in the Deep South –
who loves him just a smidgen
and an ocean.

      There is a wonderful site on FB. Doggo Appreciation. People post pics of their dogs. There is Also Floof, Bork, and something else where they talk doggo. Lots of fun!

    Delighted to learn doggo, in which you are obviously fluent. (I too am a well-wisher of Zacky Peanut, though more like an admirer from afar. than an actual relative.)

    We always had dogs in the house when the children were young and we all spoke doggish, bemusing visitors who had not heard it before! So your poem did bring a tear to my eye remembering all the pets that we had and the mischief they got up to.
    Loved every word!

    I agree wholeheartedly with Will Rodgers! Any dog lover will know this poem comes from the heart.

    Love the operatic barks! What a show doggo performs! I think you’ve captured the perspective wonderfully!

    Hims such a good boi!
    I appreciate this. Just recently started following a dog channel on youtube, late to the party I guess but I really like the dog language, very clever. 🙂
