The Unscoopable Poop

Ode To a Flea
by Strudel Oko

I'm sorry 'bout the kitchen floor
I apologize for all the gore

Who knew that eating just one flea
Could make a tapeworm grow in me?

I really didn't mind it there
I really was quite unaware

But you saw that worm atop my poop
Made me take pills,
Now my poop is like soup!

I'm sorry that I've messed the yard
And made walking through the grass so very

But can't you see I suffer too?
My butt is raw and bleeding from too much poo

I know my farts are loud and foul,
but what can I do?
I'm a slave to my bowel

Don't worry Mommy, this too shall pass
Just be thankful it's not your ass!

  • Tami

    LOL, your hilarious. I remember when my Bella got tapeworms. YUCK. Those suckers, were HUGE! didn't look like rice, looked like some alien force had grown in her bowels. I wanted to puke. PUKE I SAY! I called the vet, MY Goodness I yelled in the phone, what crawled up her behind and laid eggs? they must be 12" long! Poor Bella, I couldn't hug her either in case, one came squeezing out and made it to ANY opening i had on MY body. I took the high road out. When she'd follow, I'd HIDE.
    Nooooooooooooo, go with your daddy. I love you Bella, my little Mozzarella! But your friends, ARE NOT MY FRIENDS..

    POOR Strudel! Our Delilah had worms too when I took her to the vet....the medicine is awful! I feel worse for her now because I didn't write her a poem! I wasn't paying that much attention to what she was saying to me.....I thought she was just bitchin', I had no idea there was a little Shakespeare going on there!
    You're a good Mommy!
    Make it a Great Day~

  • Cole

    You and your mommy brighten my day, Strudel!

    have a great weekend. It is the long weekend for us it for you? or is yours next week?

  • Ginger

    Strudel baby, I feel your pain. Not that I've had worms, but I've had the pooping thing going on.
    Please leave your mommy's favorite chair alone though...remember who feeds you.

  • raxx a day in the life

    No Justine you cannot fertilize seedlings, they are too tender and will be damaged, according to tootsie you must wait until their secondary leaves appear and they get hardier!

    I want to see your seedlings, what did you plant?

  • Paris

    hahahaha...Smile or Gas?!?! hahahaha You are outrageously funny! =D **hugs**

  • Diane @ Four Paws and Co

    Great poem! Poor Struedel! Did the vet give you the lecture on the monthly flea preventive? Don't forget the heartworm preventive too! You're in big time heart worm country. ☺♥☺ Diane

  • Buffie

    LOL, I think you have an unhealthy obsession with POO!

    Hope your POOPY is better soon!

  • Rhea

    OK, twice in one day I have heard the word "tape worm" and now I'm going to be paranoid.

    Poor Strudel. BUt a raw butt makes her compose beautiful lyrics. lol

    You guys can't get the worm now, can you?! CAN YOU?!!

  • Jason, as himself

    This is the longest, most creative account of one dog's poop problems and parasite issues in the history of dogkind.

    I just hate it when the poop won't scoop.

    I just hate poop.

  • Fragrant Liar

    Oh man, that's sucky. Poor baby. But at least he entertained himself by penning a fabulous poem about his plight. Good typing, Mom.

  • Fragrant Liar

    Oh, and wibbit, wibbit! I love your new blog design!

  • TattooedMinivanMom


    But I feel your pian Strudel. Or, at least my dog Stanley does. He blew half his ass out when an anal gland ruptured. Now THAT sounds painful. We've been calling him half ass. He loves it.
