pat, more than once ... Love is a verb

sometimes she just dosen't have the courage to do it by herself
and she needs just a little prompting from me.
So I say to her ... real gently but with confidence ...
come on Eddie. You can do it.

she looks at me with her tail just a wagging
big ole brown/orange eyes still questioning
then i move my hand to the leather of the couch
and pat, more than once

I say to her ... real gently but with confidence ...
come on Eddie. You can do it.

then she looks at me again with those
big ole brown/orange eyes and she JUMPS into flight

as she settles herself into her new comfortable landing position
on the leather couch
she looks back at me
... with those
big ole brown/orange eyes
for a moment of 
Thanksgiving
