Thanksgiving This Year

Thanksgiving this year

Full house brimming

With sounds of laughter;

Children running around

Platters high with food

Everyone together on

This very special day

Family spending time

When all come from all over.

Holidays Come Upon Me

Holidays come upon me
Turkey dinners which smell declious
Cheerful gathering of family
Only it’s the anniversary of my beloved pet’s death
Passed away across the rainbow bridge last year
My sorrow was great, my first holiday without her
This year my heart has slowly mended
A new dog enter my life
Has brought some joy back into the holidays
But this month I will always remember my loss
For she passed away just two days ago
My smiling shining star
Now up in sky watching down on me
As busy holidays come right around the corner

Dog And Fireworks Haikus

I head to bathroom
Eyes scared, panting and pacing
Fireworks boom outside

Loud booming outside
My doggy ears don’t like noise
Someone stop fireworks

You go awe and oh
I head into bathtub to
Hide from loud fireworks

Almost every week
These fireworks crack open sky
I am stress and hide

Sad New Year of 2018

New Year will come soon
But I have lost my best friend
My New Year will be sad and blue
No wishing my dog a New Year
No hugging her furry body
Or planting a kiss on her snout
No more will she dress for New Years
Either wearing hat or necklace
It will be more quiet tonight
When ball will drop later tonight
This night will be sad
Bringing in the New Year.

First Christmas Eve Without Chelsey

This green Christmas Eve
No Chelsey dog will be
Wearing her Merry Christmas bandana.

Her furry soul now in heaven
Only memories of her presence
Linger around this holiday season.

No more presents will she receive
On this now cold Christmas Eve
Only my presents are under tree.

No jingle collar will be heard
As she smiles for a pose
On her favorite time of year.

All is quiet now in house
No dog to say Santa Paws
Will come tomorrow morning.

This Christmas will be sad
For my furry friend now lies dead
Only family will keep me somewhat glad.

No Celebrating My Dog’s Birthday Anymore

Tomorrow, December twenty second you’d be another year older
Your birthday bandana lies forgotten now
As your furry self is gone
No smiling birthday girl dog to sing too
No more singing her name
As she enjoys Dogster ice cream treat
No more opening up her presents
Excited when she sees food or toy
No more will she lick her thank yous
No more will she has presents
Three days before Christmas Day
And more when Christmas comes
No more celebrating my dog, Chelsey’s birthday anymore

Dog’s Take On Halloween

What’s up with weird costumes you wear once a year
Some are scary and look too funny on you
Why do you always want to put one on me too
Those bags smell good; I wish you would open one bag for me
But, you nudge me away, saying they’re bad for me
You are worry what would happen if I eat them
And why does door bell ring almost every minute
I bark; you hush me as you open door
Little voices shout: trick or treat
You grab a big bowl now with candies
And pass a few out as I watch with envy
Wishing I could grab those treats for myself
Alas, the Halloween decorations are too to reach
For I would like to get a hold of them
And you told me, I had to wait to do my business until after eight o’clock
I’m trying my best after woofling down Halloween biscuit and lapping tons of water
Will these two hours never end
Wake me up when this holiday is gone
