Like royalty

Great free verse, lovely emotional thought. Our animals are really part of our families. Funny how no one says “You must get another, ” when we lose a child; yet think it appropriate when we lose a pet. Adeline

Very touching. A dog certainly offers a lot, not as much as a cat which we have, but we would not have it otherwise for now. We did have a dog once. Not glad that you find youself working longer. Hope you get another dog soon.

Unconditional love is a rarity to be cherished M Lady The empty space left by the loss of an old friend is very hard to refill. friends advise get another pup but do not really understand how deep is your sense of loss

My two English Mastiffs are my biggest supporters. Always, are they faithful... they give so much for so little. A great tribute to Mans Best Friend.

we learn gratefulness from these animals - and with their unfailing show of affection we do tend to miss them. I miss my scamp and understand how you feel. Human beings get tired but these pet occupants of our home and hearth somehow get into a special place in our hearts - the vacuum is terrible. just love your poem. and thanks for your appreciation
