Oh, The Places Dog Sports Will Take You is our way of saying, “Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!” Each year Blogville celebrates Dr. Seuss on March 2nd. Since we don’t blog on Saturdays, we are posting a day early this year. Emma was the original Dr. Seuss fan. Of course, she loved the book, Go Dog Go! because of all the hats. She wrote her own take on that book back in 2012 called, Go, Emmadog, Go!
To honor the genius, Dr. Seuss, we also wrote him a little note. Of course, the
Feline Cat in the Hat is kind of a Dr. Seuss logo.
Bailie and I tossed around some of our favorite Dr. Seuss books and decided to write our own rendition of Oh, The Places You Will Go! We named our version, Oh, The Places Dog Sports Will Take You. The name is perfect for us since we travel a lot for our sports. Hope you enjoy our little story.
Oh, The Places Dog Sports Will Take You
It’s off to the races!
Today you will drive.
You’ll travel to fun places!
You can’t wait to arrive!
After hours in the car
You will arrive somewhere far.
Everything will be new
An experience just for you.
There will be new scents in the air
New things to see and do.
Please remember to share
Discoveries are best when not just for you.
Hotels will be your new home
A bed, a desk, and a chair.
Rooms are small with no space to roam
But you will like it there.
Tourist sites with abound
All around town.
Walk the streets to see what’s around
Even in the middle of downtown.
You were born with a great nose.
You’re a smarty pants who knows
That nose of yours is a pro
It will tell you where to go.
You’ll trial at lots of schools
Sometimes even near pools.
Perhaps a fairground
Where pesty squirrels abound?
Maybe in a place like a park
With trials lasting into the dark.
You can smell a rat in a bale
At home or away.
It’s a more interesting tale
When you travel to play.
In Minnesota, Iowa or Illinois
New trial sites are fun to sniff.
A new venue is not a detrimental ploy
You’ll easily catch a nose work or scent work whiff.
Tracking tests near and far are hard to find
Sniff as you may, sniff as you might
You lead your human as they are good as blind.
Find all the articles and you’ve achieved your plight.
Traveling adventures have been had
Hopefully ribbons have been won
Mom’s driving wasn’t even that bad
But you’re tuckered out from so much fun.
No matter where you go or what you do
There’s no place like being home for you.
