He came to me across the yard running,
While I was outside myself sunning,
Into my arms he jumped,
Long red tongue kissing me,
He was a beautiful as ever,
His fur never in a clump...
I fed him and brushed his long fur,
He talked to me without a slur,
His words in doggy talk, still clear,
I whispered how much I loved him into his ear...
We played for an hour,
Then he had to go,
Tears I awoke with, I miss him so,
He told me he'd stop back,
Strong feelings for him I do not lack,
Have a good life, Rufuz, I love you so...
