I Remember

Sunlight streams through window pane onto a spot on the floor…..
then I remember,  it’s where you used to lie, but now you are no more.

Our feet walk down a hall of carpet, and muted echoes sound…..
then I remember, it’s where your paws would joyously abound.

A voice is heard along the road, and up beyond the hill,
then I remember, it can’t be yours….. your golden voice is still.

But I’ll take that vacant spot of floor and empty muted hall,
and lay them with the absent voice and unused dish along the wall.

I’ll wrap these treasured memories in a blanket of my love,
and keep them for my best friend until we meet above.


Best Friend

She loves and lives with another now his former wife
But his dog remains with him his true friend for life
And for as long as she lives his dog with him will stay
Just for a few pats and a feed every day.

Since dogs are ever faithful for that is their way
He knows that his dog him would never betray
When he comes home from work him she’s happy to see
Your dog’s love for you a true love would you not agree?

Of cruelty to animals we hear of and read
And the one cruel to animals is a cruel one indeed
And since your animal for cruelty unable to sue
The Karma you sow is what will be your due.

The only true friend that he has in the town
His dog is the one who would not leave him down
On his arrival home from work she does patiently wait
And she wags her tail for to greet him at the gate.

A Man’s Best Friend?

There is an old time saying that his dog is a man’s best friend
That too should apply to women for why should we pretend
That a woman does not love her dog as much as any man
Women have loved their canines since human and canine friendships first began.

In fact as a whole females to birds and animals than males are far less cruel
Their nature tends to love and nurturing the male nature tends to rule
To say that man’s best friend is his dog to woman kind seems rude
How come from some old sayings the fairer sex we exclude?

To some i may sound politically incorrect here though i do not think that i do
For leadership in love and in nurturing to women we turn to
The woman loves her children and she loves the household pet
And that ’tis woman who gives birth to man is something we ought not forget.

His dog is a man best friend a saying from long ago
But between a woman and her canine the bond of love and trust more strongly grow
For women towards their pets more loving more gentle and more kind
And with every gentle woman a gentle dog you’ll find.

My Dog is Nr 1

Get up in the mornin, See his smilie face
And he’s ‘Waggin’ his tail all over the place
Nice fresh water and doggie snacks in his bowl, I pour
Belly up like a pup, shakin his body askin me for more
he’s such a good Dog he deserves the best
But his nose is everywhere looking for the rest
Get his leash and out the Door we go, for walkies
But as we go along I think it should be, ‘walkie talkies’
I talk to my Dog every single day, you see
I am sure, ‘one Day’ he will talk back to me,
But until that day will come
My Dog is Number one …

Me and My Dog at the Beach

To the beach, my dog and I run,
Play catch frisbees, just for fun.
Umbrella’s to block the sun,
Waves crash upon the sand.
My dog chases gulls that try to land. Sky so blue, sand so white,
My dog and I, were up at daylight.
Winds are warm and blowing slight,
Ocean sprays, dog strays,
Sand blows, through our toes. It gets cool, the sun goes down,
My dog and I, head back to town.
It’s time we leave the beach to rest.
After all, we were just a guest.
All the birds have flown away.
We will come back, another day.
Just me and my dog, to play.

Poem Happy Dog at the Park

I’m a happy dog at the park
I yelp and woof and bark
Along with the sound
Us dogs run around
I’m a happy dog at the park

I’m a happy dog at the park
You may think me off the mark
But I’m not by mistake
In the mud by the lake
I’m a happy dog at the park

I’m a happy dog at the park
I hunt like a big hairy shark
When the bunnies trail
Puts a spring in my tail
I’m a happy dog at the park

I’m a happy dog at the park
I’m glad that some bright spark
Brought a ball to throw
Now off I go
I’m a happy dog at the park

I’m a happy dog at the park
I’ll be wagging well into the dark
Enjoy fresh air and fun
Is my tip everyone
I’m a happy dog at the park

Poem Happy Dog at the Beach

I’m a happy dog at the beach
If I had the power of speech
I would tell you all
To throw my ball
I’m a happy dog at the beach

I’m a happy dog at the beach
There are no new tricks you can teach
I’m bouncy and glad
And my tail wags like mad
I’m a happy dog at the beach

I’m a happy dog at the beach
My joy is always in reach
Whatever the talk
It’s the best place to walk
I’m a happy dog at the beach

I’m a happy dog at the beach
As I hear the seagulls screech
I chase and I bark
Long into the dark
I’m a happy dog at the beach

I’m a happy dog at the beach
And I don’t want to start to preach
But if you ask me
The best thing to see
Is a happy dog at the beach

Poem Happy Dog in a Car

I’m a happy dog in a car
Hope we’re not going far
I walk up and down the back seat
At each corner I’m rocked off my feet
I’m a happy dog in a car

I’m a happy dog in a car
Zooming down miles of tar
Sniffing around everywhere
I know where we are by scents in the air
I’m a happy dog in a car

I’m a happy dog in a car
I’m feeling well above par
On the window I’m sniffing near
My nose leaves a slimy wet smear
I’m a happy dog in a car

I’m a happy dog in a car
We’re on our way, hurrah
Happy thoughts run through my mind
As I stare and wag at the car behind
I’m a happy dog in a car

I’m a happy dog in a car
And going slightly gaga
Too excited to lay down and nap
I’ll look out the window and let my ears flap
I’m a happy dog in a car

Poem I have a Dog

I have a dog, I have a dog
that jumps about and leaps like a frog.
I have a dog, Yes, a pure bulldog
who you leaves me behind brown turd logs.
I have a dog, a big bulldog bitch
in hygiene and wits she’s really not rich.
I have a dog, who doesn’t know her name
who’s known for being helplessly lame
To own her is a curse and a terrible shame
But she is my dog and in my care of course
so I must majestically attend her by sheer force


Poem My Darling GoodNight

This Morning, I Woke Up And Kissed My Dad’s Head
I Peed On The Carpet, Then Went Back To Bed
“The Life Of A Puppy, Oh My, This Is Great”
Then I Thought About Breakfast,” I Hope It’s Not Late”

Mom Took Me Outside, We Walked For A While
This Never Fails To Make Mama Smile
I Sniffed Of Everything That We Did Pass
I Ate Something Weird And It Gave Me Gas

I’m Sure God Loves Me, I Know That Is True
He Gave Me So Many Great Things To Chew
Rugs, Plants Or Rocks, I Really Don’t Care
What I Truly Like Best Is Dad’s Underwear

That Obedience Book Was Sort Of Yummy
Though It Didn’t Sit Well On My Poor Puppy Tummy
I Threw Up A Bit But That Was All Right,
When Mom Found It Later, I Was Well Out Of Sight

I Made Streamers Of T. P. While Running At Full Speed
Mom Is Pretty Quick But I Was Still In The Lead
I Flew Under The Bed And Mom Flew Past
She Stopped And Shook Her Head And Breathed
“You’re Too Fast”

Mama Later Phoned Daddy And Said, “It Was Frightening!”
That Afternoon She Was Sure I’d Pooped Lightning
She Sat At The Computer While I Chewed The Cord
She Thought I Was Mad But I Was Just Bored

When Mama Had Enough And Couldn’t Take Anymore
That’s When My Tushy Got Shoved Out The Door
I Love It Inside But Outside Is Best
Lay In The Cool Grass And Had A Good Rest

That Didn’t Last Long As There Was Too Much To Do
Can’t Quite Remember Where I Hid Daddy’s Shoe
I Found An Old Bone And Scratched At A Flea
I Watched The Dumb Squirrels As They Jumped In A Tree

I Barked At The Kids When They Got Off The Bus
I Can’t Figure Out Why This Makes Mama Fuss
I Barked At The Neighbor, I Barked At The Wind
I Barked And Barked, Till Mom Yelled, “COME IN”

The Sun Dipped In The West, Soon Daddy Would Come!
I Sure Love My Daddy, We Always Have Fun
I Barked At My Daddy And Then Turned On My Charms
I Woof Woofed, “Hello,” Then Jumped In His Arms

Sitting Under The Table, It’s Sooo Hard To Wait
Daddy Slipped Me A Goodie Right Off His Plate
I Raced Through The House And Scattered My Toys
Ricocheted Off The Furniture And Made Lots Of Noise

Mom Found Her Purse, The One I Had Abused
Daddy Let Loose A Chuckle
Mom Asked “Are You Amused?”
I Cowered Down Low, I Must Be In Trouble
Dad Said, “Wasn’t My Boy, It Must Be His Double!”

Mom Turned Off The TV And Said, “It’s Time For Bed”
Dad Said “Let’s Go Boy” And Patted My Head
I Got In My Spot Between Mom And Dad
I Thought About My Day And What Fun That I Had

Mama Kicked Out My Bone From The Covers Below
Then Let Loose A Sigh, A Sigh Deep And Low
She Gave Me A Kiss And Snuggled Me Tight
And Whispered So Softly, “My Darling GoodNight”
