Puppy Love....

By Rubytuesday
Me and my two best girlsHoney and LeaWho keep me going when I think I can't go onWho greet me as though they haven't seen me in years every time I walk in to the kitchen Who sit by side Lie at my feetWalk with me every morningWho are never more than a few feet from my side I'm telling you Dogs are the best medicine I've ever hadBetter than any drugAny anti depressantAny upper or downerAnd sedativeOr sleeping tabletIf you want to improve your healthPhysical and mentalGet a dog Or a cat Or a ferretOr a hamster Something that you have to look after apart from yourself I promise youWhat you give You will get back one hundred fold
They say in recovery That in order to understand responsibilityYou should first get a plantKeep it for a year And if that is successfulGet a dogIf that works outYou are then ready for a relationship
I can't begin to tell you how having two dogs has helped me They take me out of myself They remind me to keep life simpleTo value what matters To be kind And loyal
Do you remember 18 months agoWhen I went in to treatment for the umpteenth time My poor Lea fell in to a depressionAnd her fur began to fall out It continued until she had a huge bald patch on her back It wasn't until I came homeAnd began to recover myselfThat Lea began to recover tooI find that utterly amazing That my illness effected her so much And manifested in a physical way
So yes My two buddiesMy best friends My constant companions Ever by my sideI can only hope they live for another few yearsAs I would be truly lost without them
