Ziggy Dog

Ziggy Dog

A Story by Barbara Walker
"

This is about my loyal dog

"
Ziggy, named after a drummer at six weeks old. 
Sat on my shoulders as I drove,
now he sits shotgun, 
sometimes with his face in the sun. 
Like a baby with a blanket, I fall asleep stroking his hair.
Others may leave, but Ziggy's always there.

Hey Barbra,

I really enjoy this. It has a very nice innocence to it, and you can tell it's very loving. Time does move quickly and I think you captured that nicely here

Hehe, this was cute!! Dogs can be such wonderful companions; like part of the family! Great little poem :)

Thank you for reviewing Gabriela!
Nothing like the unconditional love and loyalty a dog brings.
This brings a huge smile.

Thank you!
A nice one. I am for the first time since I was two, completely petless and I dislike it much. Last year our two canines and our feline passed, and right before we moved we had to rehome my parrot. It stings. A lot

Awe he sounds precious! I am curious about the line that is longer "Like a baby...", why it is a single line, rather divided into two?
