What the Lamppost Said

"Asking a writer what he thinks about criticism is
like asking a lamppost what it feels about dogs."

  -- John Osborne

"I've got a special liking for Chihuahuas
(I'm thoroughly delighted that you asked!)
one needs to be more thoughtful meeting Schnauzers"
      the lamppost laughed

"The Bulldog and the Poodle both concern me
(it's really most amazing that you care!)
I think the darling Shih Tzu don't discern me
      with all that hair!

The Rottweiller's another tale truly
Coton de Tulear are simply fab!
the Labrador deserves good mention duly
      is that your cab?"
