Doggy Adventures

By Scott Lentine

Jumping up and down to greet you; Wagging tails and running out to play
Playing fetch and tug of war; Devouring little pieces and big bones
Taking walks across the neighborhood; Meeting new friends of diverse breeds and sizes
Going for an afternoon swim in the pool or at the beach; Getting sad when guests have to leave
Good at standing still and sitting down; Discovering new places and smells
Drooling at the sight of food; Barking at people when they pass on through
Bringing joy to owners and friends; Having fans of various ages
Sticking heads out of car windows and doors; Anticipating life’s next stages
