A Poem

 
"I talk to him when I'm lonesome like,
And I'm sure he understands.
When he looks at me so attentively,
And gently licks my hands,
Then he rubs his nose on my tailored clothes,
But I never say naught thereat.
For the good Lord knows I can buy more clothes,
But never a friend like that."

So sweet! We have three dogs and one of them loves to put his nose right on our clothing. He has to touch to smell. Drives my husband crazy, but it doesn't bother me a bit because he is such a good, devoted dog. Loved your poem. :)

So true. When you have a good friend, they only come by once. Hang onto them.

Great shot and poem. The shrimp in the post before this one is still making me salivate.

While I appreciate the sentiments in the poem, Denise, the dog shown is sadly not the handsomest fellow, but then looks are certainly not the measure of a true friend.
It was great fun video charting with yiu and Gregg on Monday night.

That is so beautiful. We had a lady bull terrier live with us for 10 years and she was one of the best friends we've ever had. We still look at her photos and talk about her. She died back in the early 1980s.
