Chas is a beautiful dog
who lives next door.
I always thought a one-man dog
was just a bit of lore.
Chaz truly loves his owner,
they really are best friends.
He cries when his friend leaves him
as if his world is coming to an end.
One day as I worked at my desk,
I heard such mournful cries,
I peeked out my office window
straight into Chaz's sad eyes.
I flew to my door
and wrapped him in my arms.
Then I brought him inside.
Could there really be any harm?
My sweetie warned of my mistake,
said Chaz would be always at our door.
Sure enough each time his owner left
he headed our way, looking awfully poor.
He would never stay long,
always ready to go back home.
As soon as he heard his owner's truck
he was ready to resume his roam.
Chaz is truly a one-man dog,
ever faithful to his master
and when the master returns
he couldn't leave us any faster.
