Just reflecting on the past, LOL.

I heard a song in my heart,

I think it was yesterday,

It was a Christmas song with tingling bells

And they were singing of riding in a sleigh.


When I heard the song, I thought of you

And the way things used to be.

Then I looked around the house and said,

"Things are good for me."


I hope that you are doing well

And your greener grass is around.

I hope that Santa treats you well

And a new home you have found.


I loved looking in your Doe-ish eyes

And getting kisses when I came home.

But I had to admit that you couldn't be trusted,

For you were the kind that liked to roam.


I know it's ruff being a dog

And I know you liked to wander

But you really should have stayed awhile

So the bond we had could have grown even stronger.


So here's to you, (What was your name?),

And here's to hoping you stay where your at.

Don't come back, and I'll tell you why,

I went and found me a cat.

Thanks, as you can imagine, it started out to be something different; dog-gone-it.

Ha! Good one, JEF!
Now we know where you stand on being a cat or dog person. ;)

LOL, actually I'm a bird person. You don't have to walk them and they are less work than, say, the cat-box.
