They are more than just our friends

Photo by Rita Keca … Momma to Ginger

Our pets are not just our friends

they are our family

Words cannot describe the impact they have on our lives,


They are so sweet,

They are so playful,

They are always doing their best to be respectful,


They know when you’re feeling sad,

They will do anything to keep you glad, and

They will try with all their might never to see you mad,


They will steal your shoes, nibble and bite

They will crawl into bed with you in the middle of the night,


They are always ready to play fetch with a ball,

They are always ready to eat when you call, but most of all,

They are always ready to lick your wounds when you fall,


They will join you when your feeling blue,

They can cuddle right up against you, just like glue,


They will follow you on any adventure or wherever you go,

They are simply the happiest to be there and follow you in tow,


They look after you just as much as you do them but nothing beats like their heart … their love more precious then a gem,


Whether on four legs or two, this much is true, our pets are not just friends, they are the brilliant moments of a life we shared with them,

They were our friends, they were our family, they helped us be our best and for that I say thank you…I wish you peacefully rest,


And I shall never forget the way you made me feel the first time we met,

With much Love to you Ginger,

I will … We all will miss you
