My precious little Pluto boy

Please spare my fingers, they are not your chew toy

Your warm little body, and inquisitive wet nose

Make me love you so much even when you nibble my toes

You are not just the playful angel that at first you seemed to be

You growl and pounce and bite like a vicious, possessed bee

It’s hilarious to watch you attempt little feats and sulk when you fail

Keep trying little fella, one day you may even catch your tail

Your hazel-green eyes light up every morning when we greet

The whole day whirrs past like a tornado, till at night you lay at my feet

Before I know it you will grow up into a handsome chocolate lab

My heart would be so proud, but my eyes would need a dab ..
