With a flurry of white curly fur, she dashes into her house
We’re welcomed with her trademark enthusiasm and wild jumping circles
Quickly she whips around and ushers out the big black silly dog
How dare he be inside!
The first doggie visit was filled with all sorts of teething problems
Polly is aggressive and has him pinned in a corner of the yard
Zuki’s big brown eyes are filled with panic and fear
But hang on, this could be the beginning of a really great game
He jumps to higher ground her little legs cannot reach
‘Bet you can’t catch me, his wagging tail says’
Three visits later, their friendship is finally forged
It was totally out of the blue and took everyone by surprise
We’ll miss her terrier antics, we each had our own special bonds
I wonder if Zuki will look for her, when we next visit?
Losing a pet is like losing a member of your family
I hope her human family are doing ok
It’s certainly going to be quiet around there, without Polly dog..
R.I.P Polly Smolly!!
