A soft warm glance from the familiar
Always present ever-growing unwavering attention.
Covered in a camo vest
My loyal guardian stands at the ready.
Trained to be a commander in comfort
An expert in nonverbal support
Emblazoned on the back of his sweater
A symbol of freedom and hope.
Fur golden and abundantly glimmering,
And the jostling of pellets inside
Speak more than all the words
One hears throughout the day.
