A nice poem expressing love and affection for a pet. 'Until his death he had not caused His little mistress tears' - loved these lines.

Until his death he had not caused His little mistress tears, He wore his ribbon prettily, He washed behind his ears. Ding-dong, ding-dong, ding-dong... a very good poem. tony
