Canine King and Finding Hope – Poems by Trish Hubschman author of the Tracy Gayle Mysteries

Hello, I’m Chief Seeing Eye Dog Blue, and I’m always on the case.

This morning, while sniffing round mom’s desk for a possible crumb or two, I came across some great poetry about canine’s who brought much love to their humans.

Here’s author Trish Hubschman with the poetic scoop.


Canine King

By Trish Hubschman

April 2024

My dog’s name is Henry.

He’s a handsome little boy.

He came to us when we needed him,

And brings us so much joy.

He has a shepherd’s face,

With pointy little ears.

We fell in love when we saw him.

He’s been with us five years.

Hes a medium-to-small sized dog,

And on the chubby side.

He loves to go for walks,

Or in the car for a ride.

He wakes me in the morning,

By standing on my chest.

He licks my face over and again.

Oh, how I love this little guy’s zest.

. .

Finding Hope

By Trish Hubschman

April 2024

We needed some hope.

Our hearts had dropped so low.

Our beloved dog, Cookie, was gone forever.

We went to a shelter,

With no real thought in mind,

Bu found her almost at once.

She was our hope,

The name was on her pen.

She was an Australian cattle dog.

She was our Hope for the future.

Note: Hope was with us for nearly 15 years and never let us down.

She digs into a coal mining town that’s been uninhabited for 40 years and discovers secrets and skeletons. In the end, she brings long–lost family members and friends back into each other’s arms and lives.

Through all this, she and Danny are planning their wedding extravaganza at the Plaza Hotel in

New York City. Tracy narrates her own adventures in these tales, as she does in the books.

    What a surprise. I gave the H prompts for National Poetry Month. H for Handsome Henry and Hope. Thank you Pattty.

  2. Hi, Trish. You’re most welcome. They were too good to keep.

  3. Hi, Blue, this is Joy, Abbie’s cat. You’re so lucky! Abbie doesn’t drop other people’s writing on the floor for me to find. She sometimes drops food on the floor when she eats, but since I’m a robotic cat, there’s no way I can pick it up. So, maybe it’s just as well she doesn’t drop things people write on the floor. You got a great find with Trish’s poems. Good for you.

  4. Hi Joy! Blue here. I’d rather she dropped French Fries.
    Human Trish writes great doggy poems.
    Maybe she will write something about a cat.
