When Muzzles Go Gray

In every dog’s life there’s that moment when
flecks of silver start to appear at the tip of the muzzle
It’s a sign that time is not our friend
But, for us, it’s also a signal that we have become
such good old friends
Rather like a well worn pair of fuzzy slippers, we fit
We are familiar, and can’t imagine life without one another
Though the day will surely come when the beloved muzzle, now turning silver
Will not be there to greet me
And I will no longer reach to caress the soft fur whose smell I am so afraid I will forget
For now, we are in that middle time of pleasure
We are enjoying the love and trust that will outlast our time together
But appreciating even more the bond
That brings a tear to every dog lover’s eye when muzzles go gray…
