A dogs love is like no other, Its equal can't be found. Its lick can melt a heartache, Unique bark - unique sound. Tiny eyes can sense our feelings, Tiny paws will say, "yes please." A multitude of emotions, Yet they show it with such ease. They always welcome our return, Or just a, "good morning" wag. A love thats unconditional, It doesn't need a tag. Its only when you know that love, That a little dog can give, That you learn what love is all about, That, you then really start to live. Two paws are wrapped around me, Yet with such a gentle touch. That I look down and "thank them" Thanking them for giving much. Few words can convey, The vastness of their skills. But its unison of ownership, And not a game of wills. A bundle of boundless energy, Regardless of their age. A pup within an old mind, Nothing counts at this stage. Unlike us, who show our age, They grow old, yet become again- young. Where a lifetime is for living, The continual life, thats just begun. So thank you, our darling angel, Thank you for WHO you are. A glorious shining angel, The very brightest star.
