When I’m feeling low,
my dog Toby seems to know
and in his wordless way,
he has a world of things to say.
First comes a nuzzle, then a nudge
and if it looks like I won’t budge,
he looks at the door desperately,
knowing I’ll think he has to pee.
On our walk he goes real slow
til I get caught in nature’s flow
and with a great big drooly smile
he celebrates his doggy guile.
