Fauning over a Friend
Kate and Pip are the very best friends,
Proving that love can always extend
Well beyond the expected in animal species
Showing how natural enemies don’t have to be
One is a dog, the other a deer
Living in harmony, playing together without fear.
Finding entertainment in their dissimilar friend
Running around and showing off
Proving to each other who is tough.
What really makes this show so much fun
Happens during the peak of the sun
The two come together and chase each other around
But neither has the advantage in this case
Not at this time or in this place.
Though one is a deer the dog’s a Great Dane
So as far as size they are exactly the same.
When one wants to prove who is boss
But putting a head on the neck of the other
The other responds as if to say don’t bother.
No one comes out on top, which leads to more romping
The dog dashing around and the deer stomping.
It is so funny to see them playing tag in the yard
And hide and seek like two children having the time of their lives
The kind of happiness for which we all should strive.
