Our Janet came around

With a new dog today…

She said her name was Gracie

From a shelter, by the way..

Unlike poor old Morgan,

Related to a whippet…

This new one is a black dachshund

So short she is a midget!

Her short little legs

Move her right along…

Neighbors laugh at her rolling in grass

And bonds are growing strong.

Getting used to one another

Takes a little time…

Some of us miss old Madison

Who was far past her prime!

Gracie-Dog doesn’t trust men–

Last night she smelled my slippers…

This morning, though she shied away,

More time we’ll gladly give her.

–Jonathan Caswell
