Pet Friend Poem

The Friendship Between My Dog And Me

My little poodle Ella came into my life a few months ago, when an elderly neighbor told me she had cancer and needed someone to take care of her dog. I offered to help and took Ella in, thinking it was temporary. Two weeks later our neighbor died suddenly in the hospital, and ever since then, Ella is a part of our family. It's amazing really how much friendship and unconditional love dogs give to their humans. I simply can't imagine life without her anymore!

My Doggie And I

My doggie makes me happy,
I love her so much!
My little furry friend;
So soft to the touch.

She came into my life
(Coincidence or not)
When I was feeling low,
As a gift sent from God.

She's always good-humored,
Always ready to play.
Attentively she listens
To all I have to say.

I know her body language
Inside and out -
When she wants a cuddle,
Her brown eyes speak so loud.

Together we're having
All kinds of childish fun…
We go for endless walks;
We laugh and we run.

Late at night she loves
To curl up on my lap.
She watches TV with me,
Or takes a restful nap.

We understand each other,
My doggie and I.
Without words she comforts me,
Whenever I cry.

It's only been three months,
But it seems so much longer;
And the bond between us
Is still daily getting stronger.

I used to be a cat person,
But now I'm into her -
I couldn't miss her for the world,
My little ball of fur.

I believe every good gift
Is sent from God up above;
So thank You, dear God,
For the doggie that I love!
