WHAT IS 12 YEARS OF LIFE?
It’s a little black nose
thumbnail size ears
it is watching a soul grow through the years..
Its full of life with a naughty streak
It’s a Eeyore
Its tug of war
Throw it .. and he will seek.
Its walking through sorrow
Helping his human reach tomorrow
Its trash can diving
& teaching his humans about surviving
Its food food food
Are you hungry boy
It’s a bone , it’s a bed … its destroying a new stuffed toy.
It is teaching his humans patience
As he learned the difference between outside and inside choices
Its a loving lick even after firm voices…
Its Barwoof … let me out
Its Barwoof let me in
Its no fear of anything
It Is being the king of doggie shedding
Its destroying all his bedding…
Its an uncompromising loyalty
It is his English lab royalty
Its not stepping in wet grass
It is his stubbornness his sass…
Its supervising his humans as they dress
Its making clean clothes a doggie fur mess…
Its a happy wet Bazzie kiss
Its knowing how much our Boy is going to be missed
What is 12 years of life?
It listening to secrets
Telling no lies
It is the deepest sadness when we have to say goodbye
