A gentle giant.

You arrived looking so awsome

Such a picture of canine beauty

We all loved you so

You were like a big teddy.

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Then came that very first day

You were taken out for your walk.

You growled at them all

And made everyone talk.

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

To our home you allowed them in

But not so easy to get out!

You got so very protective

When you heard someone shout!!

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

They said you were nasty

Not like the one before

We said they were wrong

As we crossly shut the door.

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

You would run up the garden

To spy at that washing line

You would try to bring it in

Every single bloomin time.

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

You hated little old ladies

With a bag on their arms.

When you ran down to Safeway

You could have done so much Harm.

Thankfully the door stayed shut

That awful automatic one

We caught you just in time

Oh how fast you could run

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

But we knew you better

We knew the dog from within

A soft, gentle giant

And that wasn’t a sin!!

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

I’d often look for Erin

Each time you’d both be found

Snuggled and huddled together

Baby and you, asleep so sound.

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
!!

No you weren’t a monster

You were a splendid King!!

Because we knew the true

Gentle giant from within.

    My 114 pound gentle giant, is named ‘Micah.’ He’s the sweetest dog I’ve every owned. Because of his overprotective behavior and huge framework, others are afraid of him. I love your article, thanks for sharing.
