A few months ago I wrote this pantoum poem in anticipation of the imminent arrival of a dog to join our family.
Sadly, that dog didn’t work out, and since then it has been a tortuous wait for another dog… but Diego, our golden retriever, has been totally worth hanging on for. With the softest fur imaginable and big adoring eyes, he is the best companion I could have wished for. Outside he cavorts with my sisters in the garden, inside he cuddles me. So, here he is; Diego Bryan, the furry full stop at the end of our family: we are complete!
