A good dog you cannot spoil
Nor can you teach her
to wag her tail
She is an angel on earth
Sent to you so you’ll know
Things are not so frail
is yours for the asking
Given freely for your avail

mine is my angel and will wag for hugs and kisses, she is very spoilt and we encourage her too!
resonates so much, I was moved by this, reminded me of our dear Sasha who died at a grand old age two years ago. So true.
Yes it took us two years to get another dog. Grace has just come to us and we are totally smitten. She is a wonderful dog. I hope you get another when you are ready. 🙂
Thank you and yes, time is the healer really.
I have been looking a long time for someone to teach me how to wag my tail, now I learn I have been going about it all wrong, just have to mix love and spinal reflex… got it! Good Dog, Good Quadrille, woof! 🐕
Lol! That’s funny 🙂 Thanks Lona.
I have never lived with dogs, but I can understand how they can become such an important part of your life.
Yes they certainly do 🙂
Beautifully poignant ❤❤❤
Thank you so much! ❤️
Awww, what a gorgeous animal.
Thanks so much… she’s a love
I like the tail wag as the unteachable blessing.
Thank you Janice! I’m happy you liked it 🙂
Aww! So true. ❤️
Lovely, full of love for your friend!
Thank you 🙂💕
A good dog wags her tail out of love. A wonderful quad. This expresses the true nature of a dog.
Thank you so much! 🙂
Beautiful oem and doggie, Christine! We do love our best friends!💗
Thanks Jordy … yes we do 😍
This is delightful! A-paws! A-paws! (Go ahead – you can roll your eyes at that.) 😉
No eye roll ….. I love it 😍. Thanks for reading 🙂
Interesting point that you cannot teach a good dog to wag her tail.
You take teach them most things, but not that! Even a dog has free will 🙂
So true….dogs are the best!
They really are V.J. THE BEST 🙂
oh yes…..and there is a reason why folks take dogs into nursing homes and to see patients in hospitals. We always had two dogs while we were raising our family….and after the kids left home…until we moved to Boston. Either two German Shepherds or two Standard Poodles. They are really family, right?
Great take on the prompt.
Thank you Lillian. Yes, you are right. We just got another beautiful lab (pictured) after waiting almost 2 years after losing our last lab. There’s nothing like a good dog!
