You Came Back!
It’s an expression that all dog owners know well
A look that says everything that they feel
Whether we’ve been to work or gone on vacation
Dogs give thanks we came back, it’s easy to tell.
The glint in the eyes, the wag of their tails
Some of them dance, and others sit still
No matter their action, they want us to know
They’re glad we came home without fail.
It doesn’t take much to get this loving reaction.
Step out to the mail and come back inside
And your dog is right there with nothing to hide,
With so much thanks they are a welcome distraction.
When they are young they are sure to put on a show
Bouncing around and yapping approval.
As they get older their thanks is more refined
By now they’re aware of what you should know.
Even if you come home and catch them fast asleep,
Dogs will welcome you home with a quick wagging beat.
Maybe a yawn and a stretch to let you know they’re awake.
Now that you know, it’s time to roll over and go back to sleep.
