Gone to the dogs…

Our new Furbaby…

our new fur baby

The fur on my clothes
is happy fur
full of tenderness
and cuddles
a jump-start
my heart
so desperately
required.

and my couch
has taken on
different contours
and smells
of dog breath

The house is festooned
with leaves
and dust
dragged in
from breezy walks
by gentle paws.

I have
surrendered
to the shambles
of doggy footprints
and lavish kisses
and tangled manes,
dog-tired
from early morning
wake up calls
and late night
rambles
in the dark.

I think
I’m still
barking up the
wrong tree
when I say
“look what the cat dragged in!”

it’s just that
bright-eyed
bushy-tales
have liquefied
my heart!
