Three Dog Nights

The same week that Linda got Nico, her friend Roxie got a Bichon too;
Although from different breeders, they were brothers through and through!
They were exactly the very same age, only one day apart;
The moment they were united, their eternal bond did start!
.
Then seventeen months later, Nico’s mommy had given birth again;
To seven little puppies, four ladies and three men!
We went down and picked our Cody, the feistiest of them all;
Attacking all his siblings, our hearts were so enthralled!
.
A few days after bringing him home, we went to Ernie meet;
Nico’s dearest doggie friend, came out to Cody greet!
The moment that he saw him, Ernie felt an instant bond;
Just like with his dear pal Nico, his Soul was quick respond!
.
They became an inseparable trio, we’d go out, and leave them home to play;
Sometimes, Ken and Roxie would travel, and Ernie with us would stay!
We remember those dear “Three Dog Nights”, our hearts and Souls now cry;
For one by one, they left us, and floated to the sky!
.
.
Blessed three dog nights
Greatest joy we’ve ever known
Our dearest Soulmates

My Dear Cherie,

We always had a birthday celebration for Nico and Cody, July 26th and February 27th.  I remember a fellow asked me to play pickleball on Nico's birthday, and I declined, telling him that it was Nico's special day.  His response was, "He'll never know the difference".  
My response to him was, "No, but I would".

Love,
Larry xxx
