***** I adopted a friendly old dog, a black Lab named Ken He's not much of a watch dog but we're great friends Ken, has a favorite red ball he takes it everywhere he goes even to the vet beside the mall A vision of smiles playing in the snow One night, I was sleeping in bed awaken to glass breaking Bang!.. Yelp!.. My heart sank in dread thud, thud, thud, my body was shaking My life flashed before my eyes. frozen in time, a prisoner in the dark. I fear death! Will no one hear my cries? Then reality brought me back, "Arf"! I felt something hit my chest, thud, bouncing on the rug. "Arf," Ken! I should have guest you scared me, I gave him a hug. The house is a battle zone Ken!, You're a bad boy, No! more ball. His ears went down as he groans, -dropping the ball at my feet, excited, "Arf", rlay rall" (play ball) 12-4-21 ****Fictional****

Hi Sara, I'm happy you enjoyed the poem. I had a little black, long-coated Chuhauaua. A long time ago, every time I would scold, her ears would go down and she would make a "grur." Then, in a couple of minutes, she'd forget and be back to her happy self. Thanks for your comment. Blessings~ Debra

Great pen Debra, really enjoyed this memorable writing as I had a black lab too called Cora when growing up. I did do a piece on here on Cora some time ago. Take care, Gordon

I don't know what we did to earn the love of our pets... what a blessing to someday be the person you're pets think you are. Have a great day.
