A Day To Recognize Pets

Animals are such a blessing, a true gift from God. They bring so much joy, love, and comfort. So having a day to recognize these wonderful beings we call our “pets” is truly deserved.

Here is a short poem along with a picture of my sweet Cino to celebrate this special day.

A furry family member
Are you blessed to have one?
Do you have a special bond
That compares to none?

Give them a big hug & kiss
Because so precious are they
Let them know you love them
For today is National Pet Day!

I think every day should be pet day 🙂

    Here is a much longer “pet poem” (from my book “Just Thinking”).

    A Man, a Dog, and the Sky

    Laying on the grass
    On a summer afternoon,
    And watching clouds caress the blue sky.
    Listening to birds, as they sing their songs,
    But I’m thinking of… just you and I.
    Leaves gently dancing
    To the tune of the wind,
    With their branches swaying in time.
    Insects are buzzing their own harmonies,
    While I’m thinking of… just you and I.
    And even at night,
    When stars fill the sky,
    It’s so easy to lose track of time.
    There’s much to see but… so easy to dream
    About… just you and I.
    And on rainy days;
    We both look outside,
    And wish that the weather was fine.
    But soon it will stop and then… we’ll both go
    To play in the garden… you and I.
    You wanted to be friends.
    I was rather surprised.
    A nose touch… yours to mine
    Was all it took to melt my heart.
    A nose touch… and a moment of time.
    Perhaps our souls indeed did touch.
    The inner me perhaps was found.
    Perhaps it was just your big brown eyes
    Saying so much… yet with no sound.
    But that’s history… to you and I.
    So where do we go
    From here my dear friend?
    Where do we go and why?
    To journey together; to laugh and to cry,
    And to enjoy every moment of our time.
    A man and his best friend.
    What more could there possibly be?
    I ask myself with a sigh.
    Such unconditional love… just for me.
    I shall never question why.
    Here we both are anyway,
    And on the same road.
    Who knows of the reason or rhyme?
    But we can love and play; celebrate each day
    And enjoy what remains of our time.
    Who would ever have thought?
    Both of us… just laying here,
    On the grass. Just you and I.
    Just you and I… together… and alone.
    A man… a dog… and the sky!

            Yes of course, sharing it would really be appreciated as both “Just Thinking” and “Who Said I was up for Adoption?” are both non-profit ventures. Your support is much appreciated LeeAnn. Many thanks. 🙂

        Hi Andrea – Below is a link to my “Just Thinking” book. It contains a few more pet related pieces, plus a lot about life. Every piece in the book is a reflection of my own personal experiences.
