Below is an excerpt from one of the poems (page 132)
He was just a dog, not special
To anyone but me
For every waking moment
He’d be there by my knee.
For we grew up together
On a little outback farm
Together we near drove dad mad
But we never did no harm.
I found him one day on a road
As we followed our hungry sheep
I picked him up and took him home
For he was mind to keep.
Day by day I watched ‘King’ grow
‘Til he stood tall and bold
Why, he stood near as tall as me
And I was five years old.
‘Feed your dog before yourself’
That’s rule number one
‘Clean bed, fresh water every day
Don’t tie him in the sun.’
