Man's Best Friend

The small young dog full of life,
You were cheeky, quick as a knife,
I love you with all my love,
My darling, darling little dove.
Your puppies were so bouncy, but you still grew old,
Wouldn’t let myself believe it when I was told,
For as long as I live, my heart shall never mend,
I will miss you forever my dear, dear friend.
