The Hound Who Ate My Sundae by Raymond A. Foss

Oh man! Nothing
Mom and Dad were away; I had such big plans
Four kinds of ice cream, scooped, melting
A salad bowl full---cookie dough,
Bubble gum, gummy worms, bananas split
Cherries and chocolate sauce, strawberries, too
My sundae, a masterpiece
Cold, smelling so good
Almost forgot the whipped cream

Disaster, Hey!
My dog, Rufus, Oh No!
Gulp, Steal, Swallow whole
Not even one bite left.
Not a taste, his slobber all that remained.
Just the scent and the memory
Of what might have been....
Oh man! That dog!
