Mama Dog's Gratitude

Oh, fireman, by your saving grace,
my babies remain now with me,
so I give kisses thankfully
all over your sweet dearest face.

And please do not think that I’m rude.
Though my kisses be rough and wet,
there's no bigger love you can get
then this mama dog’s gratitude.


In honor of Joyce Johnson's first contest ever:
"Doggy Gratitude"

It is so sweet and so lovely a poem. You have sketched the love for Dogs so brilliantly my friend in this beautiful write that it would be difficult for Dog lovers not to read this lovely poem again and again. To do so I am making it a fav. of mine. Great write my friend. My good wishes for its great success. I have placed a folk song of India today, hope you would enjoy it. Love and best wishes...Ravindra..Andrea Dietrich
