    When I am old I will wear soft gray sweatshirts and a bandana over my silver
    hair.
    and I will spend my pension cheques 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 – the ones so beloved of the past and the ones
    so beloved of today.

    I will still work hard cleaning after them, mopping and feeding them and
    whispering their names in a soft loving way.

    I will be an embarrassment to my family who have not yet found the peace in
    being free to have dogs as your best friends.

    These friends who always wait, at any hour, for your footfall and eagerly
    jump to their feet out of a sound sleep, to greet you as if you are a God.

    With warm eyes full of adoring love and hope that you will always stay, I’ll
    hug their strong furry necks, I’ll kiss their dear sweet heads and whisper
    in their very special company.

    I look in the Mirror and see I am getting old.
    This is the kind of person I am, and have always been.
    Loving dogs is easy, they are part of me.

    Please accept me for who I am.
    My dogs appreciate my presence in their lives They love my presence in their
    lives.
    When I am old this will be important to me.
    You will understand when you are old if you have dogs to love too.
