How lucky are we?

The sun always shines on a senior pet.
This one’s the sweetest that I’ve ever met.

Though she is slow, and her back legs are lame.
She still wears those smiles, and she loves me the same.

And I love her more for the challenges she does face.
She handles them with style and with amazing grace.

How lucky is she, how lucky am I?
We’ll cherish each day, before we say goodbye.
