Another Mushy Poem, Not!

In the pink house,
By the iron gate,
Under the moon,
Our eyes met for the first time

Through moist eyes,
A grinning face,
And a graceful gait,
You stole my heart

Up the marble stairs,
Beside the sofa,
Close to your mattress,
You amused me

By your antics,
Through your tantrums,
With your scares,
You taught me to care

With feisty leaps,
With beastly bites,
and stealthy ambushes
You fight like a tiger

Shine on, you crazy dog
Shine on, my pet!

Dedicated to my most favourite German Shepherd, Bushy, who turned 10, this Valentine’s Day!
