I have a sad weakness for sentimental dog poems. But that one is a bit glurgy even for me.
Oh, but, galumpka, that's exactly how my Ivy (yellow lab) felt about me, the goober.She was a slave to love.
Oh, groan! I'm glad to hear you're back and well, even if you did have to sic this poem on me far too early on a Saturday morning :0)
Maybe I'm just a cynic, but I think the look in the dog's eyes says "Chill the f--k out, you sentimental freak."
Nah, the look just says, "I'm hungry; where's the food?" Trust me on this one; I've seen it before.
Maybe the look says, "Hey asshole, send the $29.99 to the SPCA instead of buying this useless plate."
Yuck. I call it the Rainbow Bridge syndrome. I hate sappy sentimental crap like this, probably because it's an occupational hazard to be exposed to so much of it.
That said, my favorite pet quote is from George Eliot: "Animals are such agreeable friends; they ask no questions, they pass no judgments."Succinct, gets the point across, and isn't dripping in saccharine sentiment like a verbal version of a Mary Engelbreit print.
When my cat died a month ago, I threatened grevious bodily harm to anyone who sent me that stupid-ass Rainbow Bridge poem.Fortunately, none of my friends needed to be told. :)
