The Boys

My boys, Soni and Puck
Furry bundles of cuddles, so easy to please
The smallest things make them happy
Tails wagging with glee for throwing their toys
They turn this cynical girl sappy
My dogs
Snuggly, warm, wonderful, sweet bed hogs!
My boys
I'd give them anything because
they give love with abandon and ease
My gifts with four paws!

Awwwww - all I can do is second that! My little dog, Otis, is sitting next to me as I read blogs this snowy afternoon, and I don't know what I'd do without him.

Cute little faces.

55 Shades of Fur! That sums up the joy we get from the uncomplicated love of dogs--they are the best! Even when they're bed-hogs. ;_)

They are so cute ~

You don't have to convince this dog-lover that every word is true and from the heart.

Susie Clevenger said...

They are so adorable! Such a cute poem in their honor!

Fun poem: "They turn this cynical girl sappy" Love that.

We can't help but adore those souls that remind us that not all is lost... even if it looks that way sometimes.

What lovely pups!

They look a lot nicer than my neighbors dogs. I bet they are better behaved and well mannered too. My neighbors dogs bark, well, more like yap, all the time. Slightest bit of noise sets them off like squeak toys.

Oh you know how much I love this. No one loves us better than our dogs do. Such joy.
