Almost Three Years

A poem about the time we got to spend with our beloved family dog that recently passed.

Benny the dog.

Covid brought him home,

a speeding truck took him back–

time cut short, loved still.

    I'm so sorry for your loss! Benny looks like such a good boy. We have a black cat named Bennie and he's a sweetheart too. I hope the pain is less every day and the happy memories make you smile more and more!
