Dog School

My academic background? 

Liberal arts
with a heavy emphasis on
Romance languages
the Howl
the Bay
the Low Down Growl
that sort of thing  

a deep dive into the classics
your sit, your stay, your come and
it goes without saying

delving if you will into
Theater and Drama
perhaps you’re familiar
with my restrained interpretation of
The Temptation of Cookies On Paws

Terminal degree?

You’ll note I’ve passed all
qualifying exams
comprehensive exams
a successful defense of my dissertation proposal

yet it raises my hackles
to admit amid myriad
exemplary character references

Cesar, Buddy, The Pope

I’m still ABD.
