I love this, and I just checked and saw I didn't have you on my fave poet list yet, something I need to rectify immediately. I sure enjoy your poems. Luv, Andrea

Thanks for reading and commenting, Jack. I have never had a dog that didn't rule over me. I guess I'm a sucker for a four-legged cutie!

LOL We have pets so we can spoil them, Rhonda. (Or do THEY have US?) This is an adorable limerick and I'd love to see a photo of Sweet Pea! Love, Carolyn

Good question, Carolyn. We think we are rescuing them, but they end up rescuing us! Thanks for the comment. I will have to post a pic of little Sweet Pea. She's a heinz 57 with a lot of personality! Blessings, Rhonda

She'll be in charge until her last day, nette! Coming in at a close second, my 4 year old son. I'm in last place!

My Sweet Pea has been sick. I had to write a little something for her. All true, she has always been in charge!
