Just a little tribute to one of the sister dogs that I had. She passed away a short time ago. Twixx was a Maltipoo that we adopted seven years ago along with her sister Shylo, Shylo is still with us.  (R.I.P. Twixx)

Whenever I would play with her 
She would always wag her tail 
I'd give her snacks and bits of food 
And she never left a trail 

She was under ten pounds of total weight 
And a foot in total size 
She had the softest whitest coat 
And bangs that hid her eyes
She would fetch a toy when I threw it 
And she would always bring it back 
She barked like hell at passer byes 
But she NEVER would attack
She would lick my fingers, hands, and face 
And perform for me, her tricks
But she's on her way to doggie heaven now 
So say, so long, to Twixx

Thanks for your kind words WW! There's a reason why they say "A dog is a man's best friend" I had the pleasure of having quite a few in my old age. Glad you can enjoy your cousins...Stay well, my dear friend...Charlie

Sweet little ode to what sounds like a very cute and sweet dog. Twixx is a very nice name for a pet! May she have many great toys and treats in doggie heaven. :* Always, Laura

Hi Laura, yeah Twixx was adorable! I had a dream about her and she said things are going well up there, but they are a little ruff.....ruff, ruff (lol) Always, Charlie
