Poetic praise for pooch parks

A poem for Surrey, which is contemplating new dog parks.

Surrey is contemplating new dog parks. Good! This little poem expresses why it’s a wonderful idea:


Dog parks are delightful places,

To get your exercise,

You’ll meet the nicest people there,

Which should be no surprise.


For people who love their dogs,

Radiate a type of joy,

That is a reflection of their dog’s love,

Which all canines employ.


The majority of people are friendly,

As are all their pets,

A friendly greeting from those you meet,

Is what a walker gets.


So try walking in a dog park,

And if you need a pet,

See what an animal shelter has,

A move you won’t regret.
