To My Furry Friend
My big furry man
My baby boy
You fill my heart with so much joy
Always so excited to see me
Without you, what would the world be?
Yes, you’re aggressive to every stranger
But that’s only because you sense immediate danger
You’re so stinking cute
Though I sometimes want to put you on mute
I wish you’d stop licking your wounds open
Soon you’ll stop – at least, I’m hopin’.

My furry little friend
I cherish the time together we spend
Brightening each day you jump into my arms
Never could I resist your charm
Those twinkling puppy eyes
Never tell any lies
Your wagging tail
How adorable you sound when you wail
Mom despises you
Which makes me so blue
Because you pee on everything!
Still, you make my heart sing
You devour leftovers like a vacuum cleaner
But I love your playful demeanour
I love you like a father loves his child
Even if you’re a little wild.
