My darling Bonzie!
My darling Bonzie!
Doodle- the laziest dog ever!
Doodle- the laziest dog ever!

Life is so much better with a dog

Together we enjoy simple pleasure of a jog.

You don’t judge others, you don’t hate

Unlike us, you don’t discriminate.

You are loyal and quick to forgive

And I will love you as long as I live.

Sometimes you just sit close and listen

In rapt attention, how your eyes glisten!

You love unconditionally bringing joy and cheer

Whenever I beckon, you are quick to appear.

Your selfless nature brought a change in my attitude

And now I too accept all of life’s treats with gratitude!

      Hello Swalia, I love this poetic expression for your furry friends. I'm sure that other pet owners can relate to all you expressed here. Happy holidays to you and your family.

      Lovely poetic tribute to your dogs, Swalia. I have three dogs now, Ginger, Jackson and Coco, and have had many others over the year that are deeply missed. I can't imagine life without dogs. Thanks for sharing.

      Me too Jodah! I have had pets since childhood. Currently I have only five-years old pug Doodle. I lost the pomerian in the pics two years back.

      Thanks Manatita! The pic is five years old and that little pup has grown up to be the most spoilt and mischievous dog ever.

      Thanks Surabhi! I still remember all the dogs I had since childhood and my other pets too including my rabbits, parrots and fishes! Now I have just this spoilt pug Doodoo with me who is snoring at the top of his voice just next to me.

      What would we ever do without our furry friends. They will love us all of their lives, we can always be sure of that. Beautiful poem.

      Excellent! I wish I had time enough to be home for another dog, but alas, I don't. I really miss the loyal friend that I once had.
