My Buddy

My furry buddy

is always funny

for a small bite

forelegs upright

and eyes alight.

He races hard

round our backyard

aside the fence

woofs at some friends

they answer back

more to talk smack

than warm yakety yak.

He’s always a dude

who senses a mood

curls up close by

when we sob or cry.

Always up for play

fetching toys all day

a game of kara-te

hands and paws touché

is a favorite – yay!

Lass and lord’s best friend-ling

his licks are never ending

wet muzzle love tending

tail wagging ever caring.
