    Default Thanksgiving Dog Show Poem

    I was doing about seven different things but when I heard John O'Hurley read this poem at the National Dog Show on yesterday, it made me cry. They showed it with several different images, including a bulldog. It was so charming. I thought it was really cute and I'd share it with you:



    I give pause to my paws on this day of Thanksgiving,
    Whether wide-eyed, or doe-eyed, or with eyes that seem hidden,
    They're focused on you,
    As I watch for a clue
    Just wink or a touch,
    Says I'm important to you.
    But my words sound like woof
    My voice kind of gruff,
    So I know that
    My thanks may seem never enough,
    But this secret I share
    With you on a whim
    All dogs speak best with what's farthest from them,
    Whether fluffy or skinny, full-sized or "a la carte"
    Always watch for our tail,
    It's attached to our heart.

    "I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give unconditional love. For me they are the role model for being alive."

    Bruce posted a video of HRH and her tail wiggle! On another thread. It's the cutest thing. She has a very tight corkscrew tail. When she is excited the tip of her tail goes a mile a minute!

    That poem is spot on!

    Aww. That's so sweet. Punkin has a wild tail wiggle. He's such a happy guy. Stig's knub of a tail sometimes does a little wiggle too and always makes us laugh.

    Buddy has a definite tail wag, but BeBe with her short little tail you can barely see it wiggle, too cute.

    Exactly! It made me think of Truman and Linus' little wagging nubs.

    @sheshistory - thank you for writing that out. I watched the National Dog Show on Thanksgiving - as always - and missed that somehow. (Probably on a smoke break) Did you love seeing the EB representing in Non-Sporting? GORGEOUS! I love those speckled ears.....
