SAMMY MUTT

Little guy, you crept, wag-first
into my heart one day!
The years sped by . . .
Then came the Call
you could not bark away.

(Tell me, does your moisty nose
still nudge encircling arms?
Where you are now, are smiles more bright
before your many charms?)

Someday, I'll whistle low "our" call
and from your Pleasant Land . . .
you'll race to greet me . . . for you'll know
I need you. Understand?

  4. All to well I do. I hope this wasn't a recent loss. Either way I'm sorry. Those little boogers crawl up in your heart for sure.

  5. oh Margie he is likely frolicking around in doggy heaven, yapping at your sweet rhyme, so happy you've never forgotten him.

    do you think it could be the same for our feline companions?

    lotsa luv ann xxxx

  6. Oh, tears flow on my first visit to our blog. It sounds like your dog died and I know that feeling.
    I'm so sorry about your Sammy.
    I've seen your warm comments on many sites we both frequent but not had time to visit until now.

  7. "U r U". :) Just remember the good times when he was alive. I miss my lil' pup. He had three legs (hunting accident) but he ran faster with his tripod than he did with four! He was a wonderful dog, but unfortunately had the same colors as a deer. He's not with us any longer, but his memories will be there forever. They become 'family', don't they?

    {{hugs to you}}

  40. Hi Margie,

    Thanks for the sweet comment about Alyssa, she is quite a gift and I'm even more honored to be her Godmother and provide guidance. Boy will she be spoiled!

    What a cute poem, it's amazing how animals touch our lives and affect us so much. I grew up with labs and I miss them terribly. Those memories will last forever.

    Take care,
    Robyn
