Ode to Pixie

Tiny, curly, off-white dog.
people think you're silly
because you are so small.
But you're not.
You're an angel.
I know that's cliché.
(People always say that about dogs.)
I'll say it anyway.
He always made you sleep
on the couch or on the floor.
You weren't allowed up on the sheets.
You're not the one who snores.
Now I have my own bed.
It's green, like spring.
My feet are dirty, too,
and you sleep beside me.
