My Buddy #2 (wrrruuuff)

by CJ Maleney   Sep 25, 2017

16 years together
You are more than my best mate
You fought like a bloody demon
When my leg they would amputate.

But hey four years down the line
I still have all four paws
A loyalty and a trust entwined
You are mine and I am yours

I jumped into that river
It was so so cold and fast it's true
But you ran on ahead and dragged me out
The one who saved me? it was you!

So we are getting a little older now
And we not so fleet or flight of foot
But 16 years of loyalty and trust
Will never be forgot.

I know I was not what you expected
I grew from that ball of fur and fluff
A medium sized pall expected
You got a me, a great big black old wolf!

There was a time when things looked bleak
The kitchen I did both destroy and eat
"It's me or that bloody dog "she said

!Well hello I'm still here!

I know my time is coming soon
And your clock has time to run
But I know you won't forget me

!Your furry four legged son!

    awwww...they are truly the best of friends who are always
    ready to listen without interrupting, snuggle up to keep us company
    and warm and know how to make us feel good! I guess the feelings are
    mutual and when you come to think of it they are far more better then
    humans in my opinion!

    Enjoyed the read and treasure those memories :)
