Something funny most dogs do is making sure their owners are alright.
This can stem from several things, but always it’s a sign of thanks and love.
When out for a walk when off the leash
After bounding forward, suddenly they’ll cease
And turn to see if you are close behind
Making sure you’re never too far from sight.
Have you spent hours in another room?
Has it been too long since the last time you were seen?
Dogs will come to check on you
It’s just something they must do.
They like to know that you are safe and well
Before they return themselves to groom.
If you’ve been out working in your yard
Leaving your pup inside to rest,
When you finally return to rest inside
Your dog will make sure you cannot hide.
With concern and great intent
They want to keep you close at hand.
When you’ve been on the couch feeling glum
Your dog comes up to find out what’s wrong.
With those eyes staring right at you
It tough to keep feeling sorry for yourself.
Here’s a creature that cares enough to let you know
No matter what you’ve done, to the dog you’re still number one.
