Brooke

It's sad to see you now
a frail shadow of a body
that loved to bathe in the sun.

Calm
Quiet
Patient
Ringleader

Soft puppy fur,
deep insightful eyes
pleaded for the dignity
of removal - freedom from
lesser dogs who

whined
barked
clamored
scraped

you repaid our rescue
with one of your own.

Smart
Independant
Wise
Feared

You ran the show around our house -
outsmarted most, overpowered a few,
but mostly, everyone just respected you.
