Valentine’s Day Poetry Contest 2011

Roses are red, Violets are blue. Write an ode to your dog—we’ve got prizes for you!

We know you love your dog, and what better way to express that love than in verse? Enter The Bark’s Puppy Love Poetry Contest on Facebook. Finish the classic doggerel, “Roses are red, Violets are blue,” with a few lines about your canine Valentine as a comment on our wall. We’ll have prizes for our favorites, including Sweet Heart Collar Art from Beantown Handmade (3), a Doodle Dog Tote from Crypton (2), and Valentine’s cards from RiverDog Prints (1).

Multiple entries—and wild creativity—are welcome. The contest ends February 14th 2011 at 11:59 PM PST, so start channeling your inner Shakespeare!

Roses are red
Violets are blue-ish

So I guess she's not Jewish

Roses are Red
Violets are Blue
All you ask is a warm bed
And some slippers to chew.

Roses are red
Violets are blue
You can fetch and play dead
Wish you could pick up your poo!

Roses will always be red,
Violets will always be blue,
But I'll be blind to all their beauty,
On the day that I lose you.
-Only God can know how much you have meant to me for sixteen years, Charlie, my dearest golden boy

Roses have ouchies
Violets taste good
To Karma, my baby girl
Flowers are food.
