Pogo

Excited yelps
As I walked up the driveway
Towards the door
In less than a few seconds
My troubles melted away
Me the most important person
At least in your world

You never tired of me
You hung on my every word
Never demanded what I couldn't give
If need be you would have waited a thousand days
To see me, be with me
Feel my hand on your head 
scratching behind your ear
all you wanted was to be sitting near

Since you were a pup
We'd been the best of friends
Now all I have is your empty bed
Reminding me I miss my friend

    A sad and lovely tribute. Wouldn't this be a wonderful world if people could love with the same faithfulness as our furry friends? This one is a winner.

    Yours is a good entry, depicting your own experiences with a dear pet. they are so awesome and we miss them when they die. I know some people who can't get another pet when they lose one, but people should not think that way. the world has need of foster families for many abandoned animals.

    I agree, it sometimes takes a bit of time before they are readyfor another pet. It does help with the healing when they finaly do choose one.

    Thanks Eileen. Pogo was a minature snauzer. I had always had larger dogs. This was my first small dog and she was my favorite.

    Good luck on the contest with this moving write. I had a doggie, Chubby...cute little guy....We brought him from Iran to Lebanon when we moved because we couldn't part from him, but when we went to the States, we had to give him up...Broke my heart...He was Chubby Manassian...a family member. Pogo was lucky to be loved by such a kind master.......Lovely write, Richard.
