Speckles

In Loving Memory of

Speckles

November 10, 2023

Remembered by Lynn & Scott Shaffer

She wasn’t too sweet
She even bit a few
And don’t dare try
To snatch away her Boo

Not much for obeying
Unless a treat was involved
Around apples and Milk Bones
Her whole life revolved

She had no nuance
Walks with Daddy were divine
Using ice machines and vacuum cleaners
Were the worst kind of crime

But this lean, muscled beauty
Could chase a ball for miles
With the speed of Bolt
And the grace of Biles

Intense and decisive
Not easy to dissuade
She entered our lives without notice
And left just the same

All dog owners say,
“Ours was best in the world”
But none will compare
To our Pretty Girl
