Sandy D. Dog

This weeks Tuesday Tales word prompt is "dog" so I decided to write a poem. Not my forte but hey why not.

Ooof, followed by the smell of bad breath.
And yet, I get up without being slightly upset

She nudges me to go downstairs and greet the day.
Even though I'd love to go back to bed and lay.

Innocent, pure and with unconditional love.
She watches over me!
She never fails me!
She is always happy to see me!

And without her, my heart will ache,
My soul will cry.
I must not think of thought that will make me sad inside.

No matter what you ask of me
I will never deny
My best dog named Sandy
Always by my side!

For more Tuesdaly Tales (that are not poems) go to:
