Did you know Alexander Pope's dog was just as poetic as his owner? It's true! Pope's dog, Bounce once wrote a poem dedicated to Henrietta Howard's dog, Fop. Bounce was very critical of Fop's haughty attitude:
We Country Dogs love nobler sport,I just can't get over how similar Bounce's writing style is to Pope's!
And scorn the pranks of Dogs at Court.
Fye, naughty Fop! where e'er you come
To fart and piss about the room,
To lay your head in every lap,
And, when they think not of you - snap!
