You are way more than a pet Ladybug you are my friend You’re always more than willing To offer your ear to lend Just a little Chihuahua Though you’re a bulldog inside You are forever willing Come on bug let’s take a ride As I write out my poems You must jump up on my lap All though after awhile You simply curl up and nap Ladybug I sure love you While on treatment for hep c Toni thought I might need you To give me some company Bug you gave us your heart You gave us your loyalty That’s why you are now a part A part of our family Every other line rhyme's and each line has a syllable count of 7. Written for the "Pets" contest.

This is great Michael! A perfectly penned dedication to your "LadyBug". I love her name. They really do become part of our family. I have 3 black labs and we refer to them as our furry kids. They love you and they don't pass judgment or criticize. Good luck! Love, Robin

Aww Michael, our pets are just the greatest. This is such a sweet and beautiful tribute. I am just getting over a stomach bug, and my dog literally spent the whole day yesterday in bed with me, cause I could barely move - but he didn't even want to leave me to go eat! Truly the most loving and loyal creatures ever. Good luck dear Michael. Another chance for another wish for everything beautiful in the new year for you and family. Love always, Shar
