Doggie Style

Emily_Maltese
A long day,
and I walk into the house.
I flip the light and see
my dog.
She wags her tail and barks.
I walk toward her
and she lays on her back,
a trusting one.

I bend over
and rub her belly
as she licks my hand.
Finally,
someone is glad to see me today.
I smile as I kick off my shoes.
I sit on the sofa as she meets me,
licking my face.
Her happiness is shown in actions,
and no words are necessary.

I wish a dog on anyone that is lonely.
No matter how bad the day,
you will always go to bed
knowing somebody loves
and misses you.

It shows in their lick.

  1. Hi Kurt,

    Thanks for visiting my weblog and signing up to follow me. I love this poem. I have two dogs who love me and whom I love, and I, too, wish every lonely person in the world a dog to love them.

  2. Anybody who loves animals is friend of me. I love your poem.
    I have a question. How did you get the copy right? I’ve seen my writings (they are all over the place) being stolen many times. It hurts me a lot. Can you help me?
    One more question! I am very new to the Word Press. I am trying to put up a picture for my Gravatar to no avail. I follow all the instruction, yet my picture doesn’t come. Can you help me? I am sorry to ask you for help. Today is my third day on this site so I am very new …

  3. Dogs are such beautiful animals and know how to brighten your day. I love how you incorporated the character of a dog into your poem. Very cute picture and I totally agree, that a dog is the perfect pet for anyone who is feeling lonely. They give so much of themselves to the owner, they are loyal and trusting, sometimes more than a human friend.

  4. I agree. My dog, Terri, was the best! (I am sure we all feel that way about our little buddies.) I miss her. She was old and sick, and I had to put her out of her misery.
