Cybyl

Written for:  Poets and Storytellers United
Writer's Pantry #86:  Pet Training


Cybyl walked in the shape
of an "S", as if she were
being followed by spies.
Our black and white Springer
Spaniel could not walk
in a straight line, but
fortunately, she was never
stopped by police.  She was
the only dog we ever had that
aced Frisbee.  Racing back
and forth, she never missed.
When she had enough, she'd
amble over to us, and drop
the Frisbee at our feet.  She
would never carry it home.  So,
three of us left the park, two
following Cybyl's serpentine walk.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.

    I’ve got that image in my mind of the ‘serpentine’ walk. Our English Springer didn’t do Frisbee, but she did a mean Popcorn.

    My dog does not do well playing fetch. He’ll run to the thrown object, lay down by it, and look at me to say, “yep, that’s a frisbee”.

    The image of a dog being questioned by police is quite hilarious. 🙂
