The intent of the Paw program is to supply the state with a uniform set of dog materials that can be used by all. It will also be the main source for other dog events to come for 4-H dog members in the state.

NYS 4-H Dog Poetry Contest - 2012

A Dog's Dream
Faster and higher.
Soaring, flying, a catch, SCORE!
A dog's Frisbee dream.

The Hunting Dogs
There once were three beagles from Penn Yan
Who would chase after rabbits as they ran
The youngest was Brandi
Toby and Sarah were dandy
And they all brought home rabbits for the pan
