Murphy And Brandy-The Love Dogs - Poem by jim foulk

Murphy is his name,
of a Corgi mix
is he.

2004 we brought
brandy home,
she is a Border collie mix

Murphy fell in love,
it was love,
at first sight

Brandy acts like,
a brand new puppy,
she passed this on to Murphy

Murphy is ten,
had him since 1997,
brandy is six,
both act much younger.

Watching these two,
brings much joy,
as it does for them.

They both demand,
our attention at same time,
it is so hard to do it

Somehow we do it,
Murphy begs,
Brandy lies on her back.

They both do this,
to get our attention,
the more we laugh, the more
they do it.

So much love these,
two dogs have for us,
and for each other.

We will enjoy every moment
until that dreadful day
but happy is this day,
to have them both here.
