True, Selfless Love.

I love dogs, the are the most loving animals, they work with us and for us. The most important thing is they give us unconditional love.

Our Dog Ruby is a retired guide dog, we have taken her for her free run exercise time since she started working at eighteen months, when she retired she came to live with us.

Below is a poem I wrote about a young friend of mine Natalie, she a real hero. She has a partner and two beautiful and clever children. Ruby and I have the privilege of joining her and Quala, her guide dog on Qula’s Free exercise walks.

I wrote this double Etheree about her and Quala last year .

Blind Faith

Trust

Is all

I ask for.

Never will I

Complain. I will learn.

Eighteen months training.

I always do my best

To help you at play and rest.

I am part of the family

Life without out me is a memory.

I’m your guide dog to help and set you free.

Trust

In her

I put my

Faith. She helps me.

Blind, I cannot see

Her presence sets me free.

She is with me everyday

We walk the children to the school.

You help me work and play, my best friend.

Quala and me together to the end .

    Your double poem is a lovely gift to Quala and Natalie. Aw, look at Quala and Ruby on the grass together. They’re so cute, like best buds furry-edition.

    Wonderful. As you know I love dogs too, and my chosen charity Hearing Dogs for the Deaf (no part of the Assistance Dogs I believe) was drawn out of the hat for our dress down day when I worked for the bank. I baked cakes, and raised a lot of extra money, all of which was matched pound for pound and the charity got a cheque for about £380 I think.

    I adore dogs too. I usually end up with rescue dogs who I end up needing more than they need me. Wonderful poems.

    I am blind, and though I don’t have a guide dog, your poem touches my heart. 😍

    A lovely tribute to two dog heroes. Dogs are also close to my heart, more than some people at times.
