Thoughts To Think About While Holding The Cutest Puppy In The World. . . And
Wondering If You Should Get Involved
How much do I love thee? Let me count the ways:
* Will I love you when you puddle for nineteen
continuous days on that gorgeous Indian blanket that my friends have all
* Will I love you when I find you on my pillow when you're tired?
* Will I love your muddy pawprints when you chase a butterfly from the
garden through the kitchen when the floor wax isn't dry?
* Will I love you when you're shedding and all day I vacuum hair?
* When in digging you demolish ten begonias raised with care?
* Will I love you just past midnight when I let you out and then I let
you in then let you out then let you in again?
* Will I love you when you're lunching on a twenty dollar shoe?
(True you didn't touch the other, but I sorta needed two.)
* Oh, how will I love you as I go to pay the vet for binding up with
tenderness that nasty little gash you got while decorating the lawn with
all our trash?
* Will I love you when you're sandy, dripping water from the beach as I
chase you 'cross the carpet and you stay just out of reach?
At these times let me remember how cute you look today
and sigh and tell myself -- I love you anyway.
