Classic Poetry for Dogs

If Sharpeis wrote sonnets and Labradors wrote limericks, of what would they muse? Jessica Swaim re-envisions classic literature through a roundup of cultured hounds including Rover Frost, Emily Doginson, and Edgar Allan Pug. Poems range from the savory “Shall I Compare Thee to a Steak Fillet,” to the reflective “Sizing Up Shoes on a Soulful Evening” and the mysterious “The Maven,” each with a cunning twist that will leave you grinning. The poets are also brought to life with distinguished portraits by Chet Phillips and insightful biographies.

Jessica Swaim’s favorite activities include long walks on a loose leash, napping in front of a fire, and rolling belly-up in the grass. She loves to jump the fence in search of adventure, but the best part is always coming back home, to her wee ranchette in Colorado.

Chet Phillips is a freelance illustrator. He has created work for advertising agencies, design firms, books, newspapers, and magazines since the early ’80s. He lives in Austin, Texas, with his wife, Julie, and two tabby cats.
