Man’s Best Friend

Man's Best Friend by Tiffany Strelitz Haber

Fido failed to fetch.
He would not roll or sit.
He hated walking on a leash,
his collar didn’t fit.

He never learned to heel.
Or speak upon command.
I tried to make him lick my face,
it didn’t go as planned.

Turns out I had made,
an obvious mistake.
I should have bought a dog instead of
purchasing a snake!

About the Author

Tiffany Strelitz Haber, author of The Monster Who Lost His Mean, Ollie and Claire, and More Cheese Please!, was born in NJ, raised in NYC, has traveled extensively and lives for adventures. She will taste any food she is served, be it fried Witchetty Grubs on a stick or Calf’s Brain Ravioli, and loves being deep in the woods or under the sea. Her obsession with rhyme began at the age of 3, when a nursery school admissions scout asked her, “What is a flower that rhymes with nose?”, and she proudly shouted: “Rose!”. Many years later, after a long career in finance, she has reconnected with her love of words and rhyme as a writer.
