Copper’s Canine Cogitations

Just pet me and love me is all I really ask
I know it’s not such a difficult task
for when you focus on my amber eyes
the love I show is no surprise
You get a big smile when you rub my tummy
‘cuz all the attention is really yummy
You’ve taught me well when it comes to heeling
but I can’t help if squirrels are so appealing
I sit, I stay and lie down on command and
can’t wait for my treat out of your loving hand
I know sometimes on our walks I’m a handful
From now on, I’ll do my best and try not to pull
Big, strong labs don’t often get mushy
but I’ll say one thing that might be gushy
If you didn’t adopt me on that special day
I don’t know how I’d feel…happy or afraid
So, my family, to you I offer my paw and
I’m very grateful you chose me to be your dog ♥

  1. Awww. Lauren you have captured within your words that which I know those amber eyes long to tell you that day of adoption and every day since just how thankful your dog is to have such a great Family as your to live with. 🙂
    Beautiful. 🙂 🙂 🙂

  2. I always was and still am scared of dogs. But when I see their loving and devoted eyes, and when I witness how happy they make the others, it warms my heart and I long for that feeling of a friend… ❤️

    1. Thanks, Charlene, and since you’re a dog lover yourself, you can really understand the bond between owners and their canines…and yes, Copper has been a great addition to our family…xx

  3. Awww such a cute poem, Lauren! Love Copper. And I love it when you share photos of this cutie. 🙂 Big hugs. Will go to Facebook probably tomorrow… I can’t handle Twitter+Pinterest+Wordpress aaaand FB tonight. lol But I read your comments on my phone before starting my day. I kinda always do that but I’m always so sleepy lol… anyway it’s a good way to have a great day since your comments MAKE MY DAY. Ca me fait toujours plaisir. 🙂

    1. Thanks so much, Cha, and you are TOO kind with your sweet words about my comments! I get it, too, about so many social networks to visit and participate in! Crazy lives we live! I’m so happy what I write makes your day. Your words warm my heart, they really do, so thank you! Sending Big Hugs back and MUAH! 🙂 ♥

    1. Thanks so much, Diane, even my hubby got teary-eyed when he read it. Animals are at our mercy and it’s up to us to show them they’re loved! And I’m sure you will feel that way once you’ve finished the portraits! No rush, but do you have a time frame? xoxo ♥
