All dog-lovers know what it feels like...

My Good Friend Gonzo

In his brown eyes I see only love

Often wondered if he was sent from heaven above

He never let me down or hurt me

He is by my side, loving me so freely

He never lies or cheats

For me his great heart beats

He wags his tail when I walk in the room

When I leave him alone, he sits in gloom

My very best friend from day one

That’s my dog, together we are so strong

His shiny fur coat, daily I brush

When we go for our walk, we never rush

He plays and he runs, he sniffs and he jumps

He has fun when we’re out

He lays by my feet or has his head on my lap

When we relax at home or take a nap

He will protect me when he must, no doubt

Friendship and love is what my dog Gonzo is all about

Gonzo is adorable, isn't he?!! This is a great tribute to
him, and by extension, all our Best Friends. I was forced to
give up my first dog {without warning, yet} as a child & have
never gotten over it. Have had a lot of wonderful dogs over
the decades. Dolly, our lhasa apso, lived to be 15, and our
first Yorkie, Rosie, to l4. . .but you are never prepared, are you.
Our Nicky and Sugar add immeasurably to our lives {'our' meaning
Ray's & mine....we have been happily married 52+ years...partly
because we have had dogs to entertain us. . .and, okay, blame
things on from time to time.;)) We simply could not do without them.
Thank you for posting this. For cherishing Gonzo!! Hugs to all,
'Pea' <3
