It’s just a dog….
Some think,
Some actually say.
But he was never JUST a dog,
He was my dog, our dog,

The best dog in the world.

He was my first child,
I nurtured him, I helped him find his paws.
We played and we laughed
We ran and we danced.

He was my companion, my best friend,
When I was sad he lay next to me,
When I was happy he jumped around with me.

He listened when I talked,
When I wanted a hug he came for a cuddle.

He was our family and we his.

Just a dog you say…
