We had a family pet
Boots was his name
a border collie proud
who loved his balloon game

His master would blow up
several balloons for boot
he would charge and pounce on them
as soon as they were loose

He wasn't fussy with the colours
nor their shape and size
just as long as his balloons
were there to terrorise

If pouncing didn't pop them
he'd chase them round the yard
snapping at his loved balloons
thank god they were not hard

The funniest thing of all
once Boots had popped balloons
he once again took off round yard
looking where they'd been !

Boots is up in heaven now
chasing Gods balloons
he was a happy loyal dog
at seventeen, went far to soon !!

Was sad to see at times
as his doggy clock ticked round
this bouncing playfull little pup
locked in an ageing hound

It's so much fun watching them grow and play and become a viable part of the family! But like all things living, our pets grow old and feeble. It's a sad thing to watch. I bet Boots will never be forgotten . . . I have many unforgettable pets on my life list:-)

Good writing Sue!
