Welcome Home!
















Welcome Home!

Max greets me at the door
before I can even fasten the latch.
Then he races away for fun,
impossible to catch.
He runs to the far end of the house
then back, not missing a beat,
spinning and whirling and celebrating,
dancing at my feet.
His tail is wagging, for sure,
but the rest of him is wiggling too.
Just a bouncing ball of fur,
saying, 
"You came home! 
You came HOME!  
I LOVE you!"

    1. Karen, yes! I think we could all learn a few things from our dogs about the best way to treat others. :-)

  12. Awww! As you know, I'm partial to big ol' dogs but I gotta admit-- Max is pretty cute! If only my hubs would greet me at the door like my dog does every day. Except for the occasional sprinkling on the shoe... yeah, I could do without that. ;D

    1. Hahaha! Rachael, fortunately, Max doesn't do that. His greeting would lose some of its charm if he did that. :-D
