A fine lad was Jimmy.

He relished every bite of food,

this dog of strong preferences,

but when Toby joined our pack,

he took his treasured dog biscuit 

and dropped it at his feet.

Though disdainful of the great outdoors,

he gladly walked with Toby.

 and once we even saw him bless

a bunny with some licks.

His bark was fierce,

but his heart was gentle

and gentle was his passing.
