Fatherhood Friday - Sucker-hood Friday Edition

Ode to a Sucker

There once was a man
Whose grass was turning yellow
They had one dog
Whose urine would not mellow

Then one day
Right out of the blue
His family came to say
We want more poo

What they actually wanted
Was another dog you see
This man would be haunted
By double the pee!

He stood his ground
A dog they would not get
Another hound
This man would regret

Something happened inside
No longer standing his ground
With nowhere to hide
They would look at this hound

The man drove many miles
The word "sucker"on his forehead
The kids were all smiles
His grass will be dead

They bought the puppy that day
I know, how can that be?
The man said no way
A Sucker is he.

We are picking up this puppy next us all.


  1. From someone who has to two dogs....I feel your pain ;-) BTW ,we call it around here..."Poop Brigade"


  2. I didn't know you had it in you, hon! Move over Dr. Seuss!
    I have a stitch in my side.

  3. Ahhh CUTE. Congrats to the new addition. We have two dogs and my son is in love with both. It's great to have a family pet.

  4. Ode to the sucker is excellent prose and well read. Kids have this power over their parents no one can explain. Love, Dad

  5. oh man, as a holdout myself, this post worries me. I foresee a yellow yard in my future, but hopefully not the too near future.

  6. I have a cat and a dog and I had sucker written on my forehead walking out of the pound. We had gone for a cat. We told the girls just the cat, no dog. That worked out well, didn't it.
    Love your poem as post.
    BTW, your new puppy is very cute. I hope you enjoy him despite more poo and yellow grass. I do feel your pain though.

  7. Awesome poetry! Congrats on the new addition. May his poops be small. haha

    My word verification: peesppi (haha)
