boomsboo and her poem to Tank!
My One & Only
Tank, I loved you from the start.
When I saw your wrinkled face,
I knew I had lost my heart.
I watched you play to no end and grow each day,
Wondering when you'd tire of play.
I call you my son,
that much is true
Even though others think differently of you.
To me, you aren't just a "dog".
There's more to that face.
Deep down in my heart,
it's you I can never replace.
It's been six years with you,
snoring and hogging the bed each night.
But I wouldn't trade a moment of it,
because to have you is a delight.
Some people think of me crazy,
even quite strange,
When I call you my fur baby
and that will never change.
I wish I could show you,
how much you are loved.
The things you do to make me smile,
are all the above!
