One of our neighboring families

Recently lost their dog…

They had to put the poor thing down

She had suffered in pain too long.

Every time we guys get to talk,

Rick mentions his Penny-girl…

Get him going and memories flow

And years of life unfurl.

I’ve offered that he should rent himself out

As a complex dogwalker supreme…

Of that he says, there would be no doubt,

But it never would be the same!

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.

    So true, I like other people’s animals but the connection between owner and pet is one unparalleled in visiting another’s animal. Walking other’s dogs would be okay but not the same. Too bad about the loss of Penny-girl.
