My Dog Can Do Math

by Linda Schwartz • Pizzazz Learning


Dogs are amazing – quite intelligent too

they can do some incredible tricks,

they can dance on hind legs and love to play dead

some canines can even fetch sticks.


But my dog’s unique – he’s a whiz at subtracting

I assure you I’m not kidding or bluffing,

when I gave him the problem of ten minus ten

he looked right at me and said nothing.
