Live Interview With Colleen:

Colleen’s new poem for those who love dogs!


How wonderful it is
When a dog decides to be
Part of your life
Giving love you can see.

She has her desires
Like food, treats and a good run,
But what makes her happy
Is when you say “come”!

Her vocabulary expands
As you teach new words
Responding when you say
“outside”, “toy” or “birds”!

Oh the joy she shows
By just being near
And sitting together
While rubbing her ear.

She somehow lets you know
Without any words to speak,
Her actions and looking eyes
Express what she seeks.

Her eyes show love
When she looks at you.
It’s really amazing
No matter what you do.

God, your gift of a dog
Is a wonderment, it’s true.
Her unconditional love
Reminds us of You!
