Connie Yost (5/27/38 / Reed City, Michigan)
This is my wonder-dog, Tag-Along
Faithfully close at my heel.
A keenly intelligent hang-around
Who lives every feeling I feel.
Do you think he's asleep, here at my feet?
Soft muzzle resting on paws,
But see the ears twitch, see the eyes peek,
See quiet relaxed easy jaws?
Though caution is best, he'll handle the rest,
Should unclear intentions belie.
Permission to leave is the stranger's request,
When Tag-Along gives them the eye!
