Puppy love

That's the thing,
with puppies --
it's not always easy to know
which end is up,
especially when they're fluffy:
you might reach out to pet
what you thought was a furry head
and get a furry rump instead.
Which doesn't mean we love them
any less or any more;
we just walk them, and scratch them,
toss their balls and feed them,
and rejoice
in their undiscriminating
unconditional
love.

The pup caught my eye and couldn't resist a few more minutes here at our site......looks a lot like our upside down Westie:)

Poem is so right on!
