"The better I get to know men, the more I find myself loving dogs" - Charles de Gaulle
I’m ten weeks old white
Labrador, bundle of joy
waggling tail puppy
who loves nothing more than lots
of cuddles, fuss made out of
cheeky sides...full of
destructive habits, snoozing in
all day...puppy’s way.
But one morning decided
get serious about dog’s life
left behind unchewed
favourite shoes...to become
human’s truly best
friend. Took stressful walk. Scary
noise. Attractive smells. Trip to
School for Guiding Dogs.
Ready to be trained...make me
to start with the right paw...first...
learn basic obedience...lay
stay. How to sit...walk
interact with humans...other
dogs. Enjoy time...make new friends.
Amaze you to know...I am
now...best behave pup you’ve seen
eager to lend paw
hug...rest gentle head...sleep in
bark out thoughts...pleased to share...snug
sign...I’m yours, you are mine Friend!
