Wednesday skirmish from [@amanda-west] and the prompt was "pets". Yes, they get into everything... including our hearts. Hug yours a little extra while they're here.
(For Lady, with all Mama's love)
Fur landing in my coffee
Whiskers dipping in my tea
Muddy pawprints on the floor and an
Empty plate where my lunch should be
Can't get in the front door without them
Checking out every bag
Wouldn't trade this for the world
Cherish all the licks
And every tail wag
'Cuz we're family, be it fur or skin
By each other's side
Through thick and thin
Yeah we're ride or die, to the end of the race
No one could ever replace
Your beautiful, lovable, loyal

Aww so endearing! I hate to think how much pet fur I've swallowed! Nice one!
I love it. Really good. Some nice images tell it all. I share in the sentiment.
Yup that's how it is. Chilly here this morning and the dogs are snuggled up with me. Oh and Theo would still my food as well. Very nice one.
So true and so well-written.
Yes "fur landing in coffee" (or other drinks or food - happens too often lol). Great pictures like that in your lyric make it very interesting - I enjoyed the read a lot.
I love this, it's very relatable. I like that you don't claim they are perfect but love them anyway. Nice use of the prompt!
Really nice writing and very relatable.
Lol! Love it! Thanks for stopping by!
'purrrrfect' contribution to this skirmish! Your writing is smooth and flows like water.
This is great. I'm a sucker for all our various furry little friends. The fur in the coffee line is too relatable
I'm putting some finish coating on a guitar now and even while super taking my time and trying my best I'm sure I'll be finding stray bits of dog fur for years.
I have cats so i know puurrrfectly well what you mean.
This gave a me a wonderful warm fuzzy feeling. I could picture all the cute little actions and interactions. I love it!
