Dogs have a way to touch our lives with their devotion and affection. Anyone who has loved and lost a beloved pet may relate this poem I wrote years ago when my dog was still with me. He is still missed and I keep a tiny framed photograph, along with a plaster sculpture of him at my home, so that I will never forget him.
Aldoin - A poetic tribute to him
My little cocker spaniel,
Beloved friend so true.
You're lovable and faithful
despite what we've been through.
You always try to please me.
I 'm never quite alone.
My floppy-eared companion
is happy with his bone.
You don't know how I need you,
so never go away.
For here you're loved and cared for,
And here it's safe to stay.
Remembering a precious pet and friend.Click thumbnail to view full-size
Books I Recommend
As a writer, I'm constantly looking for inspiration that will help me with my stories. I have read a few dog books and I find that stories about our four-legged friends can give us valuable insight to our non-talking pets while they entertain us. Whether you are a reader or a writer, or If you simply wish to become the best pet owner you can be with your current "Fido" then take a look at the list here. Dogs are amazing creatures and we're blessed to have them in our world.
This is the one at the top of my list. Aldoin was highly devoted to me and he proved throughout his life. When life was hard, he was there and never abandoned me. He should have been included in this book.
I have a new puppy now and this book will help a lot in trying to understand why dogs do what they do. It's all part about being a good dog owner. The more you know your dog, the better you can care for him or her.
As a Christian, I believe in miracles and I am glad someone wrote a book about the way dogs can impact our lives with their unconditional love. I truly believe they are gifts from God and can work miracles in our lives if we let them.
This book can serve you well if you have recently lost your dog. If you have a friend who is grieving over the loss of thier pet, it can speak to them in a way that you can't. I found websites on the Inet that helped me in this way. Well, now here's this book that can do the same.
Help Animals Find Homes!
Save your money and avoid paying for overpriced puppies. Save an animal's life by adopting from a shelter. If you can't adopt, then support your local animal shelter through volunteering and donations. You'll be glad you did.
