Dog Run Romance

Written for:  Poetic Bloomings2 - For Your Consideration - Character Study Again
"Write a poem about a person who leaves no stone unturned."

Her dog chased
his around the dog
run. She called to her
chocolate Lab to come.
He did not. He called for
his beagle. The beagle
blew him off. They both
laughed and a conversation
was born. He was instantly
smitten with this funny,

for an appointment, and succeeded
getting her dog leashed, as she dashed
off. He felt a loss. Never got her
number. He doggedly returned
to the spot they met, but did not
see her. He questioned dog park
regulars to no avail.
Ah, he would put an ad
in the local paper. Maybe
she would see it. Several days
later, he received an email
from her. Seems she was
smitten as well. He canvassed
his options; a lovely painting
