The Dog Interview

by Mary E. Lowd

March 11, 2021

No one likes to be interviewed
Not even a dog
So grumbling and whining
Trying not to be rude
The hopeful candidate
Wades through this slog

At the end will they rate?
Will they want the job?

A tell-tale wag
A beard-hidden grin
Though not one to brag
A new home is quite a win
