Would We All Be Like the Dog

Would we all be like the dog,
our pain hidden deep inside.
Where unkind thoughts and fear and loss,

 are buried with our pride.
With someone - stalwart friend, kind soul,
who shows us wrong from right.
With rebuke soft, a gentle hand,
unfair judgment far from sight.
Would we know that secret place,

 where playful thoughts abide.
Waiting only for that one true friend,
 in whom we can confide.

  1. Howdy Abby, Nice to meet ya. We hope to drop by again. We are Stella (cocker spaniel) and bossy big sister, and Rory (great dane) and downtrodden brother. We'll be back to visit soon.
    No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  4. Beautiful, very toughing. OK, that was what mom told me to write. Now the REAL truth is that first I found out about the pizza and now I know about pancakes too. This Barkley fella was a genius! Me and Stanley are gonna practice some of his moves!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  5. Murphy - Mom's glad you are loving The Book Barkley! Wait until you get to the giant "initiate launch sequence!" of poop incident when Dad came over to propose to her! (That's later on in the book).

    Stella and Rory - The Book of Barkley is at Amazon.au too! (to learn all of the pizza stealing secrets when your Mom isn't looking)
