It took her six days to adopt a new ball,
Although she seems happy, she’s not sure at all…
She still gets confused and seeks out her old friend,
But at least now the guilt I’ve been feeling may end.
She’s still a bit cautious and not quite at ease
But with luck, accusation has now been appeased.
She’s been playing ‘fetch’…although I fetch the ball
She’s not understood the game’s rules yet at all…
Or maybe she has, and it’s me in my folly
Allowing the dog to make me look a wally,
I don’t really care, I’m just happy to see
A happy small dog smiling once more at me.
