I think of all my buddies,
each one a pro at moods and feelings they study.
They range from small cats to big horses.
They all have their own life courses.
I go visit friends, only to be greeted by neighs.
Their actions show they want me to stay.
To turn around and see their big grins,
makes me want to hug them under their chins.
Dogs are so loyal, they can make the day royal.
Unforgiving and lovable, no strings attached.
Always there even if actions are trash.
To have the love of a dog, is like none other.
The only comparison is maybe that of a mother.
Cats are a different breed,
they come and go without much heed.
The attention you get is because you’re granted
a few brief moments, that they’ve demanded.
My buddies, make my life complete.
My spirit soars high every time we meet.
