Dog Trick #1 (Puppy Eyes) 

 How can a dog… make you smile

A wretched old dog with puppy eyes

How can a dog make you want to cry

Lying there knowing he’s about to die

 

How can a dog make you think of Life

of the After-Life, and Other Lives

How can a dog make you realize…

 

How can a dog with puppy eyes

Looking at you trying not to cry

How can a dog with puppy eyes

Smiling goodbye

This poem fits Argos because he was always loyal to Odysseus. Even until the very end. He recognized his master even in disguise. Being as old as he was he still would have had puppy dog eyes and possibly made Odysseus want to cry.  For his loyal companion Argos. After Odysseus sees Argos he dies and I believe that Argos knew he was ready to go.
