Into the coffee bar I go,

Walk to the counter,

Order my coffee

Then walk to my table.

That is when I see her,

And she sees me.

She is all excited

Pulling on her lead,

Trying to reach me.

My coffee goes on the table

And I go towards her.

She jumps as I reach her,

The joy she shows is so wonderful.

I put my hands on her

And stroke her,

Both gently and roughly.

She is in her own world,

Her own world of joy

When I touch her.

Touch to anyone is wonderful

But to Stella it is so much more,

It shows love for all,

For all who are with her.

Such a loving dog

Who makes her owners

So very proud of her,

And the love flows

From them to her,

And from her to them.

    I have always loved dogs and i see the very spirit of dog within your words today.

    I enjoyed the pink panther variation. Have you heard this remake of an old theme tune?

    • Goldfinch60

      Thanks d a.

      Never heard that tune played like that before but it is very good, I like Stan Getz in spite of the 'ructions' in his life.

      Oh lol, fine write and pic Gold.
      We have a neighbour's cat - one of a pair. It turns up for food and sleeps a while. It makes a big fuss for food. He can get bit greedy.

      • Goldfinch60

        Thanks Orchi. Cats are arrogant creatures.


      • Fay Slimm.

        As a dog lover the poem on Stella reached into my heart dear Andy -- her owners must be so happy with your lovely poem and hope she can go on greeting you for many more times to come.

        • Goldfinch60

          Thank you Fay. Stella is only two years old so I am sure she will be greeting me for many years to come.


        • ANGELA & BRIAN

          BRIAN HERE ~ Bon Apres Midi ~ Mon Oncle Andy. Loved the VIDEO it revoked many happy memories of PINK PANTHER Films. Love the Picture & the Poem. Despite being a *Cat Person* I have to admit the Dogs do have a special affinity with MAN ~ especially if you stroke them the right way. I often see Dogs in a CAFF and always say hello and give t hem a PAT & a STROKE ! The only CAT one sees in a CAFF belongs to the owner and thereby hangs a tail ! For our Seniors Group @ College (Silver Surfers) a Lady comes with a PAT~DOG. Who greets and is patted by everyone (The DOG not the Lady ! She dedscibes her visits to *Rest Homes* (where the Residents cant have a Dog or Cat ~ C*est la Vie) and the Staff say some Residents come alive again *When the DOG comes in !*

          Blessings & Peace & Joy to Y ou & Yours
          Love Angela - Brian - Smokey Cat ! ! !

            Dogs can have that affect on people, a dog used to go into the care home where Joyce was and it always lifted people's hearts.
