A snowy walk on the country hill
this sunny afternoon,
Was all that I could muster -
to arrive back home real soon.
You ran as far as the leash would
and circles around me ran;
Such joy you showed, with tail a-wagging
and smiling the way you can.
Back and forth, on the hill, I
you bouncing through the snow;
My dragging feet made welcome tracks
for me, as you had me in tow.
Tuckered out, I fell in the door
happy to be back home;
You, on the other hand,
would like to have stayed to roam.
It was great to see you smiling
and happily not shut in;
I'd do it all again for you
if I wasn't so doggone done-in.
