To Three Buddies

One of Circuit’s compelling scenes

can be glimpsed some days near Linda Jean’s.

Well-behaved and seated by the door:

two Chinese Crested dogs and a Labrador.

Hairlessness is deemed one of the Crested’s flaws;

but it does have fur on its head, tail, and paws.

Inspection tells me each is a girl;

they hail from the other side of the world.

So, regardless of their lack of hair,

they’re friends of the Lab, who doesn’t care.

And what dog-lover could ask any more

of the friendly retrieving Labrador?
