Steve the Mongrel

My best friend of  childhood years

Only  he could  ease  away  my fears

Never hurt me, always  pleased  to  see me

Growing up  together  the  perfect we.

Running,  laughing   chasing  bikes

Either  snuggling up at home or  out on hikes.

Lovely Stevie now your  gone  but I  still love  you so!


Mum, Me  and  Steve  mid 1960’s


Steve, Mum, my  eldest  son and  me  early  1970’s

    I love that he had a “real” name like Steve instead of a “doggy” name 🙂 Thanks for sharing!
