I adopted you one year ago today.
You're my dog and you're here to stay.
I gave you Mom's name and for the first few hours, calling you Agnes made me sad.
But you've managed to make my days a little brighter and that sure makes me glad.
You can never replace my mom but since I got you, life has gotten somewhat better.
I'll never forget you and when it comes to my mom, I sure won't forget her.
My best friend took me to the place where I adopted you.
You can't tell me that you love me but I know that you do.
(Dedicated to Agnes who I adopted on August 27, 2013.)
