After her all-too-close an encounter with a canine’s canines, sympathies go to my Ice Cream Buddy via the medium of a limerick where the guilty mutt discovers the power of speech and serves a contrite warning to others:
While out for a walk in the park
Misuko was heard to remark
“I wouldn’t come near,
In fact, I’d stay clear.
‘Cos my bite is much worse than my bark!”
