Good Dog – A Quadrille

Good Dog

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

 

Unconditional love

is yours for the asking

Given freely for your avail

    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!

    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 🙂

    A good dog wags her tail out of love. A wonderful quad. This expresses the true nature of a dog.

    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 🙂

    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! 🐕

    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.
