My Friend’s Dog

My friend’s dog
Is a happy little girly girl
Summertime: a puff of dandelion, pink ribbons, all ‘look at me’.
My friend’s dog
Kisses the big boys
Dances for carrots
Barks out the window
Hides her food
Mocks the cat
Waits at the door.
My friend’s dog is there when I can’t be
Sharing the daily-ness of my friend’s joys and sorrows.
A little dog, an enormous spirit.
My friend’s dog.
