Ode to An Old Dog.
Millie being an adoptive mum to a one pound pup.
Poem about a dog we had for 15 years and losing her was one of the hardest things, I hope this poem will bring comfort to others
Ode To An Old Dog
By Ellen Karman
You came into our house, just a fur ball, a little mouse.
Prickly teeth chewing everythying in sight,
Never sleeping through the night.
Playing with the kids, Never missing a beat.
Out in the snow, coming in with frozen feet.
You've kept us warm on cold endless nights.
You drove off the boogie monsters for the tykes
You've greeted every visitor with a wag and a bark.
You guarded our house from prowlers in the dark.
You've seen us at our worst, You've seen us at our best.
You stayed at our side - whatever the quest.
You rallied around our joy and lapped away our tears.
Hearing all of our dreams, while wishing away our many fears.
A Keeper of secrets, an endless friend; something only Heaven would send.
We owe you our lives, our happiness and success.
You've given us your all, nothing less.
Now, my friend your days are few, If only you knew
How much of us, you will be taking with you.
