He stood on all fours, two feet from the ground.
He had beautiful down of rich cream
with apricot sprinkles from nose to tail.
Twin eyes of liquid hershey Kisses
He cautiously eyed me, then approached,
as I crouched down to meet him.
His vacuum nose sniffed scents from all of me.
He slowly began this rocking prance
from side to side, inviting me to touch him.
He was a gigantic dog. His barrel chest was 18″ wide,
strong in muscles. His face was
handsome and evenly set, his soft tongue
thanking me for scratching his ears.
Around his body, my hands caressed,
taking in the bulk that made up this mammoth
dog Ralph. Ralph and I knew that we were
destined to be companions and friends for
each other’s life, as he came to share my family with me.
