Growing Old With My Dogs 3When I am old…
I will wear soft gray sweatshirts and a bandana over my silver hair.
I will spend my social security checks on wine and my dogs.
I will sit in my house on my well-worn chair and listen to my dogs breathing.
I will sneak out in the middle of a warm summer night and take my dogs for a run, if my old bones will allow…
When people come to call, I will smile and nod as I show them my dogs and talk of them and about them.
