I had written this one a long ways back but it has recently come to my attention again as we just went through a horrible time over the last three days. Both of our standard schnauzer dogs were missing. They went on a joy run with a cute and loveable - but very free roaming stray. Unfortunatley, they couldn't find there way back home. Only after many, many hours and no sleep for three days - was my husband able to find both of them and give me a wonderfully happy Christmas! I couldn't imagine life without our babies - so now I don't have too. Thank you, Nelson!!
Glass doors are all streaked and covered with paw prints
I peek out the window and what do I see?
Holes in the dirt, holes in the grass, holes everywhere I look
Outside I go to see what’s been done
I’m greeted by dogs just wanting to have fun
You jump and you lick - You tug and you nip
You drag me to a hole so proud of what you’ve done
I can see what you’ve accomplished
You’ve worked hard all day long
You’ve kept our yard protected - from the moles that live beyond
Gingerly, you look up at me -
with questions in your eyes
Did we do good while you were gone - because we really tried
As I reach down to give you hugs the answer is so clear
My precious pups - for all you do - we’re really glad you’re here
Your tags they wag in unison so I know we feel the same
Our family and our dogs - we are one in life’s sweet game.
