I maybe never barked about this before, or maybe I did a gabillion times, but that does not matter one speck, cuz I love the most beautiful girl in all the world - Gretta!
Ah, Gretta, Gretta, Gretta. I can't say her name enough. She is my north, my south, my ummm - my Cowlumbus baby!
I remember when I was a pup and my Mom used to read to me. I think I can still recall one of the poems she used to recite. Let me give it a try . . .
How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My paws can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Bacon and ideal Gretta.
I love thee to the level of everyday's
Most quiet table, by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely, as pups strive for Seconds;
I love thee purely, as they turn from Baffs.
I love thee with the passion put to use
In my old games, and with my puppyhood's faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost toys,—I love thee with the bones,
Squeakies, treats, of all my life!—and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after a nap.
I think that's about right. Gretta, you are my true love, my Milk Bone, my liver, my kibble and gravy - especially the gravy - and I will always hold you in my furry head and heart. Sigh.
