Many years ago.....The TV show "Charlies Angels" was popular....and of course Farrah Faucett was making her debut....One very rainy day my parents heard a scratching at the front door....looked out..didn't see anything....but again there was scratching....my father went out on the porch to find this puppy...about the size of a mouse...it was kinda, a little bit of, somewhat of a minature Dachsund....and when they couldn't find out where she'd come from....they kept her...named her Farrah..

I have a little dog,
Her name is Farrah
She will defend me from
The most vicious sparrow

She will hop on a tub,
Or sit on a log
She thinks she's human
But she smells like a dog

Like sparkling jewels
Her eyes glow clearly
She's six years old
And housebroken, nearly

She's a part of the family
That earns no wage
But Farrah I wish you
A ripe old age.

Farrah died a few months after my parents at age 17.

I love the defense from vicious sparrows!!! LOL. What a great tribute... sounds as though your parents were very glad they'd answered that scratch at the door!!

So sad to lose such a beloved pet.
But thank God you didn't write praise for Farrah Fawcett herself, or I'd have had to switch off the computer...:..

She lived to a ripe old age. That's wonderful!!! That little scratch, scratch, was a blessing!

Toerag,
Seventeen years is a long time for a dog.
You did a good job taking care of her.
You also did a good job on the poem.

I really like this one, Toe. Are we sentimental today? If so, keep it up...I'm liking it.
