There once was a dog
who farted so hard
It really startled him bad
He jumped in the air
Like a cat with a scare
And everyone thought he was mad
‘Til they smelled his aroma
Fell into a coma
Until the odor passed
They decided right then
That his farts were a sin
As they put on gas masks
Beans weren’t allowed
Especially in crowds
He was given chicken and rice
Vegetables and such
Had mixed results
Eating meat was like
Throwing the dice
Then one day he farted
And no one departed
And everyone sniffed the air
The scent was of flowers
Like scented rain showers
Buddy’s farts were pure and fair
So this silly, little ditty was inspired by Buddy, my dad’s dog, who we are currently taking care of — and I also seem to be channeling the mischievous spirit of the nine-year-old boy within my daughter. I hope you are amused. If not, look on the bright side, at least you don’t have to smell Buddy’s farts! 🙂

I’m in a coffee shop right at this moment laughing my head off! Dog fartes are truly vomit inducing. My labrador has a problem with this but the cats have got used to it, bless them. I haven’t though 😲
I’m so glad this gave you a chuckle today! I agree with you — dog farts are the worst! Still, Buddy’s unbridled love, enthusiasm and sweet disposition make putting up with his “silent but deadlies” bearable! Well, sort of.
Haaa! This is great.

Buddy needs YOGURT !!!!!!
Dairy? Really?!!! That’s either a genius idea or a really bad and potentially stinky one! Let me work up the courage to give this a try! Any brand you recommend? Do they make lactose-free yogurt? This is just crazy enough that it might work!
Hilarious! If only we really could make them smell like flowers!
I wholeheartedly agree with you! If there is someone out there in the world who can make all farts smell like flowers, you are destined for riches beyond measure and greatness as well! Because you truly would be making the world a better place! I would definitely pay real money for that!
Ha! Hahahah! This is SUBLIME!
A sublime rhyme? Thanks Robbie! You just made my day!
Trust me Yogurt is the answer!
As long as you don’t blame your farts on the dog, it’s all good.
My late uncle used to do that. He’d let one rip and then look down at (Spot, Rover, Duke) and tell his wife to stop feeding the dog beans.
Every. Single. Time.
I would never do that! *fingers crossed behind my back* Heeeheeeeheee!
