Best Dog Poems For Kids

Here are some fun dog poems for kids.

  1. My Dog
  2. By Stevan Hanson

    My family got a new dog

    Its fur is short and white

    I absolutely love him

    But something is not right.

    His ears are soft and long

    and flop along the side.

    His tail is quite short

    But also very wide.

    He’s positively quiet 

    He never makes a sound

    He’s got a real cute jump

    When I put him on the ground.

    I’m sure when he grows up

    He’ll be massively strong.

    His favorite food’s carrots

    He eats them all day long!

  3. My Puppy Is A Handful
  4. By Ann Davies

    My puppy is a handful,

    so full of energy

    she jumps around to greet us

    and wags her tail with glee. 

    She digs when in the garden,

    getting muddy from her head to her toes.

    whatever goes on in her mind,

    heaven only knows.

    She bolts her food so quickly

    and barely chews at all

    she saves her chewing for the rug,

    our shoes and the kitchen wall.

    Everyone tells me she will improve,

    and I want to believe what they say

    so I’m hoping our dear little puppy 

    will become docile one day.

    We want to create a harmonious home,

    so we’ll try exercise, discipline and rest,

    and trust that she will calm down

    for we can only do our best.

    Remember the saying 

    Let sleeping dogs lie

    Now I have my own puppy

    I can understand why!

  5. A Dog For All Seasons
  6. By Denise Rodgers

    Some like San Diego

    where the weather’s always great

    I prefer the seasons 

    that we have near our great lakes.

    In winter, when I walk my dog

    it’s freezing, but we go

    He sticks his head in snowbanks,

    and his facelifts up the snow

    when spring is here, the leaves sprout forth

    My dog is such a pain

    He dashes out and tromps into

    the puddles in the rain.

    The summer’s warm and humid

    and the sun shines hot and bright.

    I take my dog out, walking

    in the coolness of the night.

    when autumn comes, we really like

    the brisk October breeze

    We crunch the leaves together

    as they float down from the trees.

    Some, like San Diego

    say it has the perfect weather

    But we prefer four seasons 

    that’s my dog and I together!

  7. It’s Just A Dog
  8. By Sadie A. Gibbs

    You may be a dog

    But to me, you’re more

    You’re the light in my fog

    You put up with our war.

    It’s just a dog

    Are the words from someone

    Who has never seen fog

    And whose wars have not begun.

    Through thick and through thin

    You’ve stayed by my side

    Even when I can’t win

    Even when hope has died.

    You’re the angel I wished for

    You’re the best friend I’ve had

    You’re all I wanted and more, 

    And I love you like mad. 

  9. Dogs Are My Friends
  10. By Unknown

    Dogs are the best buddies,

    who like to hug and cuddle. 

    They take care of you,

    when things are difficult to handle. 

    Dogs like to stick around,

    with you all the time.

    They try to jump on things,

    even when it is hard to climb. 

    Dogs love eating biscuits and,

    anything prepared at home.

    They have beautiful fur,

    which you like to comb. 

    Dogs are most loyal

    and trustworthy animal.

    They like to react and play 

    on things that are musical.

    Dogs wait for you 

    to reach home. 

    They like to take bath 

    in a pool with lots of foam. 

    Dogs are always there for you

    through thick and thin.

    Is there anything left 

    that you want to begin. 

  11. Are There Paw Prints In Heaven?
  12. By Missy Davis

    I hear of a place that is made of gold,

    a place where we shall never grow old,

    but one answer I have not heard at all,

    will there be paw prints from my little dog?

    He promised us joy right from the start.

    I just wonder if she’ll be a part.

    So as I sit here and dream of the day,

    I wonder if in heaven she will stay?

    When you’re walking down with the saints of old,

    take a glimpse of that new road,

    and if there you shall see,

    maybe a paw print just for me.

  13. My Dog And I
  14. By Alice J. Cleator

    When living seems but little worth

    And all things go awry,

    I close the door, we journey forth—

    My dog and I!

    For books and pen we leave behind,

    But little careth he,

    His one great joy in life is just To be with me.

    He notes by just one upward glance

    My mental attitude,

    As on we go past laughing stream

    And singing wood.

    The soft winds have a magic touch

    That brings to care release,

    The trees are vocal with delight,

    The rivers sing of peace.

    How good it is to be alive!

    Nature, the healer strong,

    Has set each pulse with life athrill

    And joy and song.

    Discouragement! ‘Twas but a name,

    And all things that annoy,

    Out in the lovely world of June

    Life seemeth only joy!

    And ere we reach the busy town,

    Like birds my troubles fly,

    We are two comrades glad of heart—

    My dog and I!
