If We Had Tails...

If We Had Tails...

By Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee

I sit here looking into Kissy's face
He looks right back at me with his baby face
I smile softly at him, my heart melts with love
Just as it does as I, also... look into Chadwick's face

Special pups, our family... our life
They are all we have in this big, old world
They are between us and having no one
Between us and ...loneliness

We love them, they are the family we come home to
The family we buy special things for
Basted chews, twisted chews, chew bones
Even a red fox toy, a possum toy or two

No matter how bad we feel, how sad
They walk, run to us with happiness in their faces
They are really glad to see us
They come to us with love, no matter what

Chadwick's bushy, blonde tail will wave gracefully in the air
Kissy's little short tail will waggle a 'mile a minute'
When we come home after being away
Love, pure love for us... it means the world

When we are away we find we look forward to getting home
To make sure they are okay
We are so happy to see them
That... if we had tails..... we would wave, waggle them, too!


  1. Oh how well I know ya'll love those pups!! I know they look forward to ya'll coming home when you are gone. I know they love you and Skip as much as ya'll love them! They are special pups. Love, Ms. Nancy

  2. Nothing can compare with the pure love we get from our dogs, Granny Gee. I know our lives would be so much less without Pablo.

  3. You do know the pure love I speak about. :))) Granny Gee
