A poem for my gardenia bush

O lovely shrub,
your flow'rs are sweet
and pleasing to the eye.

But if your leaves
turn brown and drop,
I shall not wonder why.

I have been crying for days as our beautiful 9 year old red pitbull Koko the Brave suddenly began losing her sight due to recently diagnosed diabetes. Your story of Butch gives me hope. What a precious boy dog. And what a precious human you are.
