blue eye, brown eye lab mixed mutt

cool nose nudges, lap kiss smudges

flop, roll, turn, squirm 

massive tail sting whacks

toothy-slobber manic attacks

puppy size unrealized

but a hundred pound bear size

gruff throat growls

vicious canine chatter

keep pace, run and chase

menacing fence line clamor

thick pawed, sharp clawed

rip, rake, obliterate

tender irises and daffodils

and intimidate those outside the gate
