We Found Each Other

I’m pretty glad,
We found each other,
Amidst the clamor,
Of dogs and owners.

I’m darned happy,
We “go together”;
Like ham and cheese,
We make each other better.

I’m super sure,
We can’t go wrong,
If we stick together,
For a haul that’s long.

I’m awful lucky,
We met when we did,
In that noisy place,
Where I used to live.

I think my lease,
Was about to expire,
And you saved my hide,
In a time that was dire.

Yeah, I’m dang glad,
We found our groove,
Cause without you,
I’d be one sad pooch!

Where’d He Go?

Sometimes,
I wonder ‘bout you,
Thinking to myself,
Where’d he go?

Sometimes,
I wonder ‘bout the,
Mailman, thinking,
Where’d he go?

Sometimes,
I wonder ‘bout the,
UPS man, thinking,
Where’d he go?

Sometimes,
I wonder ‘bout your,
Friend, thinking,
Where’d he go?

Sometimes,
I wonder ‘bout the,
Pool boy, thinking,
Where’d he go?

Sometimes,
I wonder ‘bout the,
Dog sitter, thinking,
Where’d she go?

The question,
That matters most,
Is whether you’ll come home,
And that answer? I definitely know!

You Know I Like It

You know I like it,
When you call for me,
When you take me out,
And you set me free.

You know I like it,
When we go walkin’,
When we’re together,
And I hear you talkin’.

You know I like it,
When it snows outside,
When we get back home,
And it’s warm inside.

You know I like it,
When you sing out loud,
When you act real silly,
And you dance around.

You know I like it,
When we howl as one,
When we sing together,
And then whine (or hum).

You know I like it,
When it’s you and me,
When we’re home alone,
Kickin’ back and watching TV!

To work hard for you.

To paying you back,
For my canine education.

Everything you need,

My Friends

Of my friends,
A few stand out;
A few are truly,
Worth howling about.

Of my friends,
A few stand up;
A few are truly,
That true and tough.

Of my friends,
A few stand tall;
A few are truly,
The best of them all.

Of my friends,
A few stand above;
A few are truly,
Good at showing love.

Of my friends,
A few stand with me;
A few are truly,
Pillars of loyalty.

Of my friends,
A few stand firm;
A few are truly,
Unlikely to squirm.

Of my friends,
A few stand among,
The few I truly trust,
And – of them – you’re one!

The Doggone Miss You Blues

Bleep. Bleep. Bleep.
The alarm goes off.
I already miss you.

Fah, lah, lah, lah, lah.
You sing in the shower.
I start feelin’ blue.

“Okay, boy…”
See ya later?
Why can’t I come, too?

…instead o’just,
Lying around here,
With the “Doggone Miss You” blues?

A truck pulls up!
It’s the UPS man.
Geez – where the heck are you?

A school bus drives by.
Kids get off, screaming.
I know you’ll be home soon.

A familiar sound – is that…
Your key in the doggone lock?
It’s true, it’s true – it’s finally you!

A Dogs Love Is Like A Sunset

A Dogs Love Is Like A Sunset

As I lay on the soft white sands of the ocean shore
Listening to the blue ocean waters pour up onto beach
I gaze straight ahead watching the sunset
Casting an orange light straight across the sky
As the sun begins to go to sleep
So peaceful,
So gentle,
Such a warm, loving feeling the sunset brings

The same feelings my dog “Barney” brings to me as I gaze into his eyes,
Watching him run into my arms
I know I could never be at harm
Because my dog “Barney” will always be there to protect me

As he embraces me
I can feel all his love pour inside of me
Each time I look at him, my heart fills with joy
Ever since I got him way back when, I was a little boy
How much fun I have playing with him and his favorite toys

I can’t even remember all the treasured times we’ve shared since I was a little boy
All the times I have said, “I love you”
To my best friend in the world
My precious dog, “Barney”
Whom I love with all my heart

I adore and cherish him,
He brings a ton of happiness to my life
And for this, I give thanks
And I will forever be grateful.

My Feline Friends

My feline friends,
Both old and new,
Deserve some credit,
From the canine crew.

They put up,
With our barking,
Without so much,
As a nasty scolding.

They overlook,
Our tendency,
To forget we’re,
Not mortal enemies.

They pretend,
Not to mind,
When we snap,
At their behinds.

They forgive,
Our protests,
When they get,
Fed before us.

They paw off,
Quietly – versus,
Stomping ‘round,
Just to taunt us.

Overall, they’re
Pretty kind to us,
Not matter how much,
We fight and fuss.

So, feline friends,
This apology’s overdue,
From canine’s you know,
Have known – or knew.

Your Canine Companion

As you sleep
As you dream
As you eat breakfast
Who’s by your side?

Your canine companion.

As you watch TV
As you make your tea
As you finish up dinner
Who’s there for you?

Your canine companion.

As you cry
As you laugh
As you contemplate
Who feels your pain?

Your canine companion.

As you age
As you grow
As you get smarter
Who learns with you?

Your canine companion.

When you met
When you married
When you had kids
Who was happy for you?

I was and always will be.

With love,
Your canine companion
