Sitting by the Fireplace
By: Tony Giotto
Sitting by the fireplace while patting my dog, Duke,
Christmas is almost here and it’s no fluke.
As I watch the clock and hear its chime,
I look at Duke and wonder how fast this year has gone this time.
Further back as I look at Duke at a young age,
I see him now turning around as one would flip a book page.
Playing and working, that’s it,
Duke has always been loving and fit.
As Duke gets up slowly and looks up at me,
I smile, pick up my cup and sip slowly the hot tea.
It seems like Duke smiles as he lies back down and curls into a ball,
I look at the fireplace and think back how it was waiting for Santa to come down the chimney wall.
A-Z Canine Training would like to extend best wishes to everyone for a Merry Christmas and a Healthy and Happy New Year!
