My Friend Nero
Today we had to say a final farewell to our friend Nero.
When we were young, shiny coated, all black dogs, we used to run around and play.
Well I used to play with Nero, and Chips just ignored us.
Nero always put Chips and me to shame with his good behaviour and never running off.
But every now and again, his cheeky side would pop out.
He was very handsome.
Truth be told, I had a bit of a thing for Nero, but he wanted to be just good friends.
Us three used to go to the cafe every week.
Nero was our calming influence when we used to bark all the time.
We walked together come rain...
Nero was our friendly, gentle friend. He didn't even bear a grudge when Chips bit his ear.
We loved walking together and rolling in muck and searching for treats.
We loved finding new paths and getting lost and finding ourselves again.
We loved setting out, and Nero loved heading back to the car when he thought it was time to go home!
He was the perfect combination of sensible, loyal and fun and he did a mean photobomb.
Farewell lovely Nero.
Thank you for the good times.
