About Dogs

I've thought about dogs
wrote and read about dogs
and had dogs.
But there's a sadness
when they leave-
a pain-
and I'll swear
that it will never touch me again.
But then I get another dog
because the joy they bring
is greater
than the pain
when they leave.

I like this a lot. Some think it's strange but a dog for some is no different than if it were a child. My dog is like that to me.

I say, if you have not experienced love from a dog...then you don't know love at all. There is this special quality to it.....hard to explain.

This was very nice....I just wish they made Tic-Tacs for dogs!!
I hate it when they breathe on you, and lick you on the mouth ! Their breath is always SOoooo horrific !! hehehe

Really nice - I've never had a dog and can't wait until I do. (Mind you - I feel this way about cats...)

Yep, so true. They love you no matter what.
I didn't think I'd make it through the potty training stage with mine. But she is wonderful and I love her very much! She's my baby.

RobertB -
You are talking to the greatest dog lover on the planet with this one.
All my dogs are in my heart's pages
to be remembered long after they are gone.
How their little antics have pleased me.
A feeling like no other.
There are puppy paw prints all over my heart.
Thank you for sharing this.

My dogs are the joy of my life...unfortunately they couldn't come to live with me when I moved, so I go to see them whenever I can.It's worth the hundred miles. I just finished wrapping their Christmas presents   Merry Christmutts!  

Great poem, Robert...anyone who likes dogs is a friend of mine!
