Well dogs like to sniff dont they, when I take Polly to Copthorne Park , does she sniff, goodness me, I have to wait ages whilst she sniffs away… but dogs have an amazing sense of smell as we know and some are used at the airports for example to find drugs or bombs. Dogs are amazing aren’t they?Whats that Polly, you just need to sniff something else! arghhhh! Sniff Pot Polly!


Sniff is something I do

the smells are great

but not for you

Humans like to sniff flowers

coffee perfume aftershave

to those things I simply wave

cos im a dog

with no monalogue

I sniff the ground

theres lots to do

the grass the squirrels

and yuch other dogs pooh!

some dogs they work with their noses

and no one quite supposes

or even comprehends this much

I can smell it from afar without a touch

the drugs hidden away

the airport rogues

that think smuggling drugs is in the vogue

us clever doggies catch them quick

before we even have a lick

our sense of smell is so fantastic

it stretches far even better than elastic!

it drives us crazy these lovely wiffs

and nothing is there better than to sniff!

so have respect for our clever noses

cos no-one really supposes

we are that smart or can do that much at all

but we sniff a lot and will recall

anything that needs to be found

in the airport or on the ground

and when we go to the park

it better to sniff than to bark!

I drive my owner crazy I have to say too

as she waits while I sniff andnearly turns blue!

Cos I sniff and I sniff

and sniff even more

right up to the moment we reach our front door!

I became interested in poetry about a year ago and try to write about things from my heart that are associated with events in my life or events going on in the World at large or closer to home. I am a visual artist and still am to a certain extent having exhibited some of my work as a visually impaired artist using sponges to paint. I have lost most of my eyesight in recent years to advanced glaucoma and my vision is now very limited I am finding my creativity now evolving in writing poetry and hope to publish my own book of verse in the future. I have a blog page on Wordpress where I share my poetry, art, photography, thoughts and favourite quotes and prayers at
