Goodbye Mr Woof


Mr Woof 1996-2013

Goodbye old friend,
faithful companion, confidant,
licker of toes and warmer of feet,
chaser (but never quite catcher) of posties' motorcycles,
thief of teddy bears, pillows and avocado sandwiches,
stoic survivor of paralysis tick, cane toad toxin, and cruciate catastrophies,
anxious barker, snorer, snuffly sniffer, 
fearful of cats, and of being alone,
lover of beaches, duck ponds, and furry blankies, and incredibly long naps,
heroic guarder of treats,
furry child and brother,
wagger of stumpy tail,
connoisseur of pigs ears, rawhide chews, and bad smells,
excitable puppy, even in old age,
weetbix gobbler,
prickle collector,
beard food storer,
hater of baths, flea treatments and veterinary thermometers,
well-meaning trip hazard,
lover of routine, of family, and scratches,
pathetic pleader for people food,
clown and king,
champion sleeper,
stress puppy,
sun-lover,
botherer of offensive old neighbour,
prolific pooper,
territorial wee-er,
bathroom door guarder,

the best dog in the world.
