Featured Review on this writing by Sharief Hendricks

This is a poem about everyone's love for dogs.

Celebrating our Love for Dogs



Photo courtesy of writer

My dog Bart, energetic, lover of all.
sable coat, steely eyes.
Perpetually ravenous, smell profound.
Fancies water; fetches sticks,
emerges dripping, stinking fur.
Hard panting, saliva drooling.
Aware, always, aware of undetected illness.
Licking, licking hands, ignoring rejection,
Always declaring affection.
Occasionally barking; craving his human
Not fated to find a better friend.

Awww, this is so heart warming Shirley !!

I have 3 Large Breed Boerboels, and I love them to bits, even wrote a story about them.

They do steal our hearts don't they, and we couldn't have asked for more loyalty from any human being...

I take it that is busy Bart in the poster?....adorable indeed.

Loved it !
