She bounces around like a Tigger,
full of energy
and fun doggy vigor.
Her eyes shine with smart laughter
and sweet loving trust
as she brings her favorite toys out to play.
She will do most anything for a treat
or bite of food,
and there are many tricks
in her repertoire;
all she needs is the word,
command her attention,
and she’ll always be your best friend.
Her long fur can be a nuisance
(we can almost make another dog
from what she sheds),
but it’s part of what makes her
the beautiful Aussie that she is;
she’s black and white,
with brown mixed in –
the perfect blending of
a triple threat of colors.
She’s a little wary of people,
but a fierce protector
who barks when she’s bothered,
and knows when she needs to guard.
We couldn’t have chosen
a better furry and loyal companion
to watch over our precious daughter.
