It’s hard to love you

when you shred me,

slice my skin on the sharp tips

of those needle teeth.

It’s hard to love you

when you track mud,

make puddles, and leave

stinking pellets behind you.

It’s hard to love you

but your eyes twinkle,

and your tail wags

and you keep trying to climb into my lap

It’s hard to love you

but the hard things are worthwhile.

I’m building a love story

with training and time.
