#116 – Charlie

More than a dog

More than a pet

Charlie is a best friend

The way he wakes up and runs at the world in front of him is beautiful,

So it the way he wakes up and puts his little head back down before he goes about his day.

His whole world is love, food and walks

The most incredible gift into my life

I’m safer with his perimeter checks

When I see Charlie’s happy it makes me smile, I feel good all over

He bonks his head off doors and furniture

He makes noises and grumbles

He gets the zoomies when he sees me

He makes the most heart melting noises when he’s excited

He snores

He burps

He loves a cuddle

He’s at home wherever he is

He wants to be everyone’s friend

He barks at birds and chases cats

He makes my life a brighter place

My little buddy

I love you

  1. That face! OMG! I’m in love! Those eyes!!!!
    The poem reminded me of my Rainbow Baby Pound Puppy. He used to snore and growl and burp and fart in his sleep. The older he got, the more he snorted to voice hsi displeasure. Thank you for making me think of my baby!

    1. Thanks for sharing what a sweet story, dogs really are just the greatest little beings aren’t they. I read something the other day that said something like “being in nature with a dog is the closest thing to being in the garden of Eden” they’re just always in the moment with you and how could someone not help but love the little guys. I’m glad you liked what I wrote!

      1. Depends on the dog, but yes they are. Some dogs are far greater than others, just as some have obnoxious behaviors you can’t train out – like sucking holes in pillows while asleep, or humping or barking constantly. But even they’re kind of cute in a “this dog need to be trained so much better than this” sort of way 😂

        All animals are present in the moment. And if you let them, they will bring you into the moment too and everything else just melts away.

        What you wrote was beautiful and heart felt. I have seen many who write about dogs love for their people, or their unwavering love for their dog. You wrote a best-friend letter to Charlie which isn’t something I’ve seen a lot of.
