Dear Artie,
My heart has been waiting
For a dog like you
When we first met
Your tail wags were small
And your smile
Was not quite sure
But Mussie (our dear old shih-tzu)
and I knew
That you belonged with us.
You were scared of the car
And when we got you home
You were scared of the family.
You refused to go out the doggy door
And then refused to come back in
But then,
Slowly,
Bit by bit
The frightened parts of you
Got smaller
And the brave and happy parts
Got bigger.
Your smile makes my heart sing
And your tricks
parkouring off the couch
bring laughs and gasps
in equal measure
You still try to squeeze
Through the doggy door
At the same time as Mussie
Two dog bums
Trying to fit through a door
Only big enough for one.
You leap like an acrobat
When we come home each day
And you curl your long body
From my lap
To my chin
Your heart
against my heart
and a beam of love
on your happy dog face
I thank heaven everyday
For the wonderful gift
of you.
