DEDICATION TO ALL PUPPIES

MAGIC WORLD OF PUPPYHOOD

My heart swells with love
And is filled with such pride,
I kiss your sweet face,
My love for you undenied.
Expressive brown eyes,
As you learn and explore,
Digging up mud holes,
Eager for more…
You take it all in,
As much as you can,
Yet it’s still not enough;
You chase the mailman…
Your precious brown eyes,
Sparkle with joy,
As you romp in the grass,
Chasing your favorite toy.
A field of grass,
Is adventure indeed;
You suddenly freeze,
At a creeping centipede.
A sudden movement,
Catches your eye…
It flits up and down,
Against the blue sky;
Your little legs,
Leaping ever so high,
As you reach for the sun,
And the elusive butterfly!
You never tire,
You’re never bored,
An old wooden stick,
Is added to your hoard.
The sun goes down,
The day’s almost over,

You end your adventures
By rolling in clover.
That little black nose
Begins a twitchin’
It sure smells good
In mama’s warm kitchen.
After your dinner,
By a cozy fire,
A fuzzy old rug,
Is your hearts desire.
Gentle soft music,
Brings on sweet dreams,
As God bathes you tenderly,
In soft golden moonbeams.

    Thank you, lol. Writing is one of my favorite pastimes.

  2. I love it 🙂 The line “You suddenly freeze, At a creeping centipede” is brilliant!
