Love Is Blind - Poem by Jerry Behr Number 2

They say love is blind.
But I don’t think so to be kind.
I think love is more an understanding
of the beloved faults and not grandstanding.
My dog Buffy is a case in point; as a dog she is incredible.
Well mannered, and her companionship indelible.
She doesn’t bark too much, just enough for the undesirable.
One flaw, which for her is very, very unfashionable.
She is continually shedding her fur coat, all year round.
My missus has to vacuum for her fur where ever it’s found.
I have to use masking tape to clean up Buffy’s hair.
Off the sofa and all Buffy does is questionably stare.
She is the envy of all bald men.
Fancy growing hair all the time then
And now and for ever and ever over and over again.
And I have to muck around cleaning hair all the time; a pain.
Never mind, I love my Albino dog Buffy just the same.
She is not a vicious dog, just playful and tame.
