Roll Over Rover I Thought I Would Come Over

Updated on October 19, 2011

To Animal Lovers Everywhere

How often do we forget our pets ?

Who stayed loyal through all our breakups

When we get busy and our beloved animal is starving for attention

Who never holds a grudge

They are our loyal companions by our side

Who makes loving top priority

Loving us more than we could ever love them

Who listens when we want to vent,curse and complain

When we rush out to go to work and come home exhausted

Who gets up to greet us no matter how tired

Don't forget the one who curled under your feet all night

Who never questions what you say or how you say it

When you don't feel good and want to be left alone

Who cheers you up by rubbing their wet nose up to your face

When you had a tough day and are so aggrivated and your blood pressure is sky rocketing

Who walks behind you no matter what direction you go

Like your four legged shadow

Who loves your hugs and kisses

When your best plans fall through

Who will be waiting to spend the whole afternoon wih you

As the years fade away

Who will always be remembered as a love as sweet as pie

Don't forget the animals we love the most

Who are the real who's who that make the difference in our life

      Sunnie Day You have put more smiles on my face.Each time you mention one of your animals my eyes light up.I don't know if you can see it from there.Like bug eyes that are so bright and actually glow in the dark just in time for Halloween.I too have had animals that I loved too much.I often wonder if those animals didn't pass away how could I have had room for the others.How silly would I look with all my animals at once.I know it was hard to talk about them but you have now shared something so special that now a piece of them can be with me.I believe the only way that life lives on is through the stories that we tell about the things that we love so much.I don't think it is fair to keep all those great memories to yourself.Maybe I am just spoiled and when I hear about great times. I get greedy and I beg for more.Well thanks again for sharing.Dim Flaxenwick The last time I heard Oooh it was when my cat decided to play with the tassles on the lamp shade and the lamp came crashing down with the end table that I tried to fix.That still stands crooked.I don't know if I can survive the pure torchure my cats put me through.But then I would have nothing to write.Have a peaceful day or one that you wouldn't wish on the best of friends.(lol)Thanx for sharing and caring and making life the greatest.

      Dear Dream on,

      Right now I have one little female Beagle that we got from the pound last year,,she was pregnant with babies..due anyday..She had her pups and we found homes for everyone..She had them two days before Christmas so we call her Chrissy. I also have six chickens..Maggie, Lola, Blondie, Paris, Anna, and They have just started laying eggs which is wonderful. They run to us like little puppies and Chrissy thinks she is the rooster..haha Have had many animals through the years but they passed on in old age. So heart breaking..Your question will start me babbling so I better stop as I love my animals..hahaha

      Thank you again,

      The unconditional love a pet gives its owner is almost unequaled. They really want nothing more than a little attention, love, and food of course.
