A dog poem for you!

A beautiful poem and a guest post at that!

This poem arrived during the last two days.

I have real pleasure in posting it!



We can learn so much from our dogs. I have written about it and we can feel it. So many of us are lucky enough live with that special dog connection. They can help us through hard times and we feel like our dogs came into our lives for a reason. Here is a little poem dedicated to Jesse.

Ode To My Dog

Jesse- Yellow Labrador, 12 years old

My dog and I have a connection like no other. Unconditional love. She is my shadow and winks at me as I talk to her from above.

Although she is deaf, she knows what I am saying, and wags her tail around. She remembers my voice and can hear it in her head while her tail is pounding on the ground.

My dog is getting older although she still has a youthful mind. Her body tries to keep up when she asks me to throw the ball for her to find.

Even though Dogs only live on Earth about a decade or so. The work they do while they are here will stay with us after they go.

So hold them tight, treat them right and give them your attention while they are here. You never know when the time is up and it’s their last year.

I cherish the moments I have with my furry soul mate and I am excited to see her everyday. To spend time with her and show her love because she can’t hear what I say.

Dogs come into our lives for a reason and that reason is love. To guide us and teach us those important lessons we need to learn from above.

Everyday with your dog is a blessing. Take time to feel the positive influence and give them a great life. You are here for each other not only on Earth but in the afterlife.

The Dog Connection~

Dog Bless!


As Holli so aptly says, “So many of us are lucky enough to live with that special dog connection.”

They are the most precious animals of all!

  1. LOvely.

    Paul, a question. Our big boy, Boris, is starting to have mobility problems. He’s now 11, maybe 12. What did you do for Pharaoh to ease his pains and help him along?

  2. This is sweet. We have an older girl who is showing her age, though she still spins around when she thinks we’re up to something. Yet now she has to take a bit of a running start to get into her favorite chair, and we are seeing the writing on the wall. After losing two older dogs in fairly rapid succession, we don’t feel prepared to witness yet another’s decline. This poem reminds us to enjoy every moment with her, as we do, and points up the transience of life, itself. Appreciating each moment is a gift. Nicely done, Holli (?). Aloha ❤

    1. Time goes too quickly, especially for our beloved dogs. Bela, you are never prepared. Rather should have written ‘we’. We are never prepared.

      This poem does remind us to savor every moment.

  3. I read this at first without the two photos (comes into my feed without…) a beautiful tribute, but then, lucky for me, clicked again and saw Jesse’s beautiful face….those soulful eyes…to know she is also deaf and cared for by such a compassionte person truly truly warms my heart. Thanks so much for this post. Really like ‘Dog Bless’ too🐾♥️
