It is only a matter of hours now
until we say goodbye.
This will be our first time apart
and already the tears are flowing.
I know he is going to miss me
and wonder if I知 ever coming back.
It breaks my heart to worry him so.
I know it is only for a few days,
But how does he know that?
For all I know, he値l think
he is back at the pound.
Bless his poor little heart.
He値l be taking his own little bed
and his kennel so he won稚 feel
so far from home.
But I値l feel so far from him.
He won稚 have anyone
to give him lovin痴 and kisses,
to shake his hand
and give him treats.
Who is going to chase him
around the coffee table
and play hide and seek?
Who is going to comfort him
if there is a thunder storm?
Oh I know he値l be better off there
than with us.
He goes nuts when we leave him in the car,
or a motel room or the RV.
I知 a big blubbering mess
that is beginning to think
this is going to be easier on him than me.

I am guessing you are sending him  the vet. We do worry about our pets. It'll be over soon.

Yes he is going to the vet. He is used to going to the vet (not this one) to get groomed so he doesn't have "vet anxiety". I know it won't be for that long. It just hit me yesterday how much emotion I have tied up in this dog. It is like he has become my emotional support dog. Anyway, the powerful feelings caught me off guard and spawned a poem. ~L

I enjoyed your poem, you feel the same as I do about my furry creature.
