I am the puppy most people don't see, but my She did. I am the dog everyone insists is too much work, but my She didn't. I am the dog that people said I should be given back, but my She said forever is forever and that means always. And always it was and forever was forever.
My She was looking for a furry puppy and took home the underdog instead. I was literally in the bottom cage of the extra room at the shelter. I was black with a bit of white and gangly, and gangly I remained until I grew tall enough to counter-surf. I ate the loafers her mom brought back from Italy, I ate the gift from Spain, I ate 3 pounds of M&M's, I ate the telephone stand. I flunked obedience school, but did learn come and the She was satisfied. I took my baby brother under my paw, and loved him, tormented him and let him chew on my ear. What are big brothers for? And missed him when the divorce happened. I learned to get into the car by myself after that, after my She and I had a talk. Why do the peeps do more talking then we do?
I never was in a dog fight that I won. As soon as a fight started I cried for my She to rescue me, she always did. When she was hurt, I took care of her, and found ways to snuggle with her, that didn't hurt. When I got sick she took care of me. In 12 years we lived in 5 states, with other people and alone, cats, dogs and little people, in apartments and houses. As long as my She was with me, it didn't matter. As long as my She had me, life was alright. I was and always will be her Best Boy.
