My dog ate a tube of glue

Dear readers,

Curiosity killed the cat, well I certainly hope it doesn’t do any harm to my nosy dog who decided to use up one of his lives (do dogs get nine lives? I hope so, the way my dog’s going) by snatching some super glue from a table, getting the stuff on his tongue and paws. He seems okay, nonetheless, although he’s excellent practice for when Pamela and I have kids.

The event inspired a little Limerick poem. Enjoy.

My dog ate a tube of glue.

My dog ate a tube of glue,

He’s stumbling around like he’s had a few,

He has a burnt tongue,

And a face like he’s been hung,

And now it’s a few days until he can chew.


About Nicholas Rogers

I am an English journalist/copywriter living in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, and I have been here since 2011. I originally came to work with Casa Alianza, which supports street kids and vulnerable youths. I then stayed on, after meeting Pamela Cruz Lozano, who calls me her adopted Catracho. I work freelance journalism and I have my own translation business. Why did I come here? For the challenge, to open my mind and get out of my comfort zone. I love literature and I've written a book with street kids. I write novels, short stories and poetry, all of which you will find on this blog, as well as a lot of information about Honduras. View all posts by Nicholas Rogers
