Old Dog

In the sunset of a life
Spent in happy loving loyal;
Golden queen of quiet days
Born to gentle gusto royal

Friend of all but slowed by aging
Trots along with labored wheeze;
Yet a youthful dog in memory
Still the heart’s desire
To please

  2. Very nice. It takes me back to my Rainey. She had a quiet dignity about her as she neared the end of her day. We have a new puppy now but Rainey is always in our hearts.

They can be trained well for being a good service dog and intelligent
