Under the table, Where no one will see?

To help you see…

Just Another Member of the Family

When guests ask,
Why you feed me,
Your table scraps,
You give great answers!

When neighbors, Wonder why you,
Let me dig in the yard, You set them straight.

When strangers, Question my size, You suggest they see, My gentler side.

When others,
Ignore my frustration, You look over and I, Finally stop barking.

When I sense, Something odd,
About a place or person, You trust my judgment.

And for that,
I thank you: For, Treating me like,
A member of the family!

Canine Bonding

Sometimes I rub,

Against your leg,

Against the couch,

Or against my cage.


It’s canine bonding! What can I say?


Other times I nip,

At your ankle or hand,

At your favorite ottoman,

Or that ratty old afghan.


Hey! That’s canine bonding, too.


It gets your attention,

When I do those things,

When I act kinda strange,

Like I’m begging to be seen.


In fact, that’s canine bonding at its best.


All I want from you,

Is a little of your time;

A thoughtful, longing look,

That say “I’m yours – and you’re mine”.


‘Cause this canine like to bond with his owner!

Should be bold, Courageous, And strong.

A child’s best friend…

Should be firm, And unyielding, Like a Kong!

A child’s best friend…

Should stay close, And never abandon, Their owner.

A child’s best friend…

Should stick around, And not be a, Temporary “loaner”.

Two Dogs in the Mist of Love

Oh, Jenna I love you as they say,

The bond between us dog lovers can never stray

We are two best buddies bonded together as one


Oh Jenna,

Oh Jenna,

You mean so much to me,

My tan furry friend


The way you gaze into my eyes,

The things that you bark and the things you do,

Mean oh so much to me


I love the time we spend together

Every moment is a memory to be remembered

A memory to treasure and hold in my heart forever


Fetching sticks at the dog park,

Running circles around the swing

Watching the mailman walk up our driveway

As we give him a big loud bark




When we are together, we connect with sparks

I enjoy being with you,

Every moment,

Every minute of the day


You are much better than that dog named Heather who lives across the way.

Trust me my love I pay her no mind!


We always play outside when the weather is warm

We play ball with the other dogs

We eat our owner’s cheese steak hogs

When they look the other way

You are the one and only best friend for me

We are soul mates

Who do everything as one


Would you still be with me if I gained a lot of weight?

Our relationship is great!

We have a lot of fun

I love you, my sweet precious friend

You are the only one

For me…

Thinking Of Gus While on the Bus

As I sit on the bus

All I can think about is my dog, “Gus”

His furry little ears,

His big brown eyes,

Filled with unconditional love

His body feels so soft just like a dove



The bus suddenly comes to a stop

And you can hear the doors pop

I pop up from my seat

In less than a second of a beat

I dash out of the door

And pop out into the street


As I gaze straight ahead

As the sun gleams down on me

I see my dog, “Gus” waiting for me


Our eyes connect,

Both our bodies fill with excitement

As we quickly run toward each other

As he hops in to my arms


I hug him tight


I missed you too Gus!


I bent down toward the ground

To pick up his toy mouse

As we ran toward the house

I pushed opened the door

As “Gus” jumped up on me

I toppled to the ground as he licked my face

“Hee, Hee, Hee”

I love you, “Gus”!

I missed you so much!

I am so lucky to have right next to me

I’ll Be There by Your Side


 May you always have a dog by your side,

Watching out for you in all the things, you do

To show you love the way dogs do


Especially when times get tough

Through their cuddles, licks and ways of affection

They remind us to keep believing in brighter days

Helping to strengthen us so we can believe that our hopes and dreams will one day come true


Showing us that all positive things are possible

If we believe and stay positive as they do,

Because even when they get hurt they strive to get better

They show their strength and perseverance through their determination to get better and to never give up

They are like a train that keeps on chugging no matter how old the engine

They’re the type of animal you always want by your side,

May you always have love and comfort from a dog who loves you

A dog to cradle your wounds

And to love you unconditionally

A dog that encourages your dreams

By strengthening your hope with their love

Inspiring happiness,

Walking by your side,

Sitting on your lap,

Through it all
