"Screw the shining armor. I will take my man in dirty camo any day"

A little girl,
Age 3.
Carries home a puppy
Little does she know,
He will become her world.

A young girl,
Age 10,
Lays down crying, her Grandpa's gone.
By her is her dog,
She does does not know how much he means

A young teenager girl,
Age 13,
Sits on the floor, again crying,
The kids at school are mean, but the dog is there for her.
This is when she truly knows, what he will mean.

A teenage girl,
Age 16,
Now fears,
That her dog's days are numbered.
She wishes she knew what he would mean sooner...

I wrote this about my dog who I got when I was 3. I remember sneaking him home in my coat. Which I thought was extremely sneaky of me. But looking back I must have been a sight for my parents when I walked in a puppy tail and legs sticking out of my coat. (I made sure they couldn't see his head) And when asked what I had, my response was nothing and that I didn't know what they were speaking of. It has been 13 years since I snuck that pitbull mix home. He and I have done so much together, and I don't know
