HELLO MY BEST FRIEND

HELLO MY BEST FRIEND

 

Hello my best friend.
What are you thinking as
you stare out the car window?
Are you waiting for one of your
human sisters to come home?
Are you watching for the train?
What goes through your mind?
Whatever thoughts you are having
are definitely pure and sweet,
for you are the sweetest animal.
I love you my dear, Nounous.

WHAT’S NOT TO LOVE

WHAT’S NOT TO LOVE

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I can’t describe–or even put into words–how much I love animals.
Their hearts are pure.
They are like babies, always trusting and forgiving.
They never put themselves first.
They love everyone who loves them.
And that’s how it should be.

My new love is my Maltese, Nounous.

 

He is my champion and my best friend.

NOUNOUS–THE MOST IMPATIENT MALTESE

NOUNOUS–THE IMPATIENT MALTESE

 

This is my favorite picture of my Maltese, Nounous.
He is waiting for the LIRR to bring my daughter home from New York City.
He hears the train whistle but can’t see a train.
He becomes impatient.
He sits at the window, waiting.
As the train pulls into the station, he watches the doors pass by.
They are moving too fast for him to see his beloved friend.
The train stops.
The doors open.
Watching and waiting, he sees her.
He begins to howl, pawing at the window.
He is still not sure.
He has to wait for her to come closer.
It looks like her, but he can’t tell.
She is beside the car window and shouts,”Nounous I’m home.”
He jumps up and down, woofing with joy.
She is home.
