For many people dogs are their soul mates
And with days of having them as a puppy it is too late
To realise that they have taken our hearts
With their love, affection and even their bark!
For over 10 years, I resisted having a dog of any breed
But over time there was a planting of a seed
And before you know it, a three month pup arrived who we called Daisy
Right from the get go we knew she wasn’t lazy!
With the cold and snow of that first 12 years ago we thought we had lost her
But her white fur - in the snow-caused our eyes to temporarily blur
From an adoring puppy full of energy and vitality
Who’s unshaken love helps with our mentality
She has the best seat in the house, sitting on top of the armchair
Keeping a close eye on the neighbours, delivery men or anyone who dares
To enter unannounced into our cul de sac
She will tell us with her bark of their arrival - and make sure she has our backs!
Through good times and bad times she has always been there
Living up and down the country, in so many houses, she has never questioned where
Just simply to know where her food and bed is
And when she will go for a walk - otherwise she gets in a tiss!
I’ve tried to get our Daisy dog
To write about her life in a blog
But to be honest I would be worried about what she would state
So instead I write a poem- and hope she thinks its great!!!
