Girlie

She calls herself,"Baby" as she holds me and pats my back with those little fingers Half the size of my large paws delicate pudgy toddler hands Laughing with motion and caressing she cups my cheek, stares into my eyes and says,"You o-kay?" Yes Baby, I'm okay. Are you okay? "Woof-woof," she barks and licks my…

A Good Day

  On a good day nothing happens I wake up pain free feeling rested then water my garden and weed until I hear Girlie saying, "Whereareyou?"
