Dog for Life

Dog for Life


They say a dog is for life

But whose life?

I’d like to know

They steal our hearts

They win our love

Then before you know

They grow dog old

And off they bloody go

Leaving tears and a void behind

That only dog lovers know

That’s the very last time

“We cannot stand the pain”


But along comes another one

And off we go again.
