Roxy

So my dog has a week to live.

13 years is what she

Had To give.

When she was a pup 

She broke her spine.

"There is no hope"

Said the vet.

So we said "Fuck you"

We bought her wheels

Now she is a novelty pet.

I'm a sprinter and 

She can keep me at my paces.

Take her down the street 

And there's smiles on all the faces

Of the people that see the dog

that can run with two legs,

She can smile and bark

And dig and rustle trust me

she can do it all.

But what puzzles me is

She does all this 

Whilst in her mouth there's

Always a ball.

I know i have mail

When she incessantly yaps,

I know i have guests 

When she incessantly yaps

I i have ghosts

When she incessantly yaps!

 

I was there at her birth

Wiggling like a worm

she was mewing

On my chest, I said 

"That's the one!"

She's proven kind, warm, friendly

And smart too, and thanks to

Social media is a

World Winner of hearts.

 

When i see the puppy in her 

Begging for food.

Or just staring at me

Like no-one ever should.

I feel the love in this eyes 

And it won't go away.

It's surreal

That it's to end.

It's not the death 

Of an animal 

Its the death of my best friend.
