Whoever says dogs aren’t too smart
never knew Apollo,
who’d lead us cleverly to things
he wanted, and we’d follow. . .
This German Shepherd, friendly and
obedient and bright,
was so devoted we could feel
secure throughout the night.
For he was always with us,
our protector, yet our child,
a funny pet who loved to play
but never got too wild.
And anyone who says a dog
does not know how to love
has not had a true friend like mine
to sing his praises of!
A tribute to the German Shepherd who was beloved of my friend Lis.
