Today I Lost My Friend

For my boys: Dan, Barry & Nolan

You’re not just a dog
you are my dog who
danced across the floor 
with pitter-patter of paws
which still linger in my heart.

I miss you most at night;
our long snuggles in bed,
my leg warmer, tender
hearted friend; always at
my side with every stride.

You trembled with excitement
upon my arrival, no one else does.
I am hers and she is mine till the
end; yet, forever in my heart!
For today, I lost my dear friend!


  1. I’m so sorry for your loss, Patti. I lost a dog in 2017 and it just wrecked me. I had a hard time reading this without feeling weepy.
