enjoying her (17 December 2013)

17 December 2013

it’s just so enchanting having a dog
this morning I’d walked on the driveway
then left the front door open and gone into the kitchen

from there I heard the triptrop of her claws on the floor
and she appeared, looking pleased with herself

though it’s not allowed, it was so nice to hear that sound again

I had her breakfast in her bowl in the twitch of a muzzle

she scoffed every single biscuit
and left the OsteoEze capsule on its own

then as I watched, she had second thoughts
picked it up and crunched it

then had third thoughts and dropped it back again
I picked it up and put it with peanut butter inside a slice of bread

down the hatch it went
who’s a clever girl

then I heard the lap lap, lap lap, as she drank water

going to miss her so much
