Your Dog: A Good Friend, Indeed

Happy Martin Luther King Day!  In honor of Reverend King, I present this post about good friends who provide us the help we need.

I received a very touching e-mail from Pete Dowan, a songwriter who is disabled.  He states that when his condition was first diagnosed, he needed a little help each day to keep going.  His poodle/chihuahua mix, Scuttle, provided motivation for him to get out and walk everyday.  When Scuttle passed away at the age of 17, Pete wrote this song in his memory – it’s absolutely beautiful!

GOOD FRIEND

1st VERSE:

How I wish I had a friend like you.

Someone I could tell my troubles to.

Someone who won’t laugh and call me fool.

A good friend like you.

2nd VERSE:

Every afternoon we share a walk.

Just a couple times around the block.

You’re so patient while I talk and talk.

A good friend like you.

CHORUS:

GOOD FRIEND, EVERYBODY NEEDS A

GOOD FRIEND, LIFE IS FULL OF WEEDS

WITHOUT A REAL GOOD FRIEND.

3rd VERSE:

Time is all I have to spend on you.

You appreciate it when I do.

Make me feel I’m extra special too.

A good friend like you.

CHORUS:

GOOD FRIEND, EVERYBODY NEEDS A

GOOD FRIEND, LIFE IS FULL OF WEEDS

WITHOUT A REAL GOOD FRIEND.

BRIDGE:

So hard to find. With you around I can just take my time.

You’ll be my friend until the end. But I need the two-leggèd kind.

4th VERSE:

How I wish I had a friend like you

Something less would really never do

They have got a lot to live up to

A good friend like you.

CHORUS:

GOOD FRIEND, EVERYBODY NEEDS A

GOOD FRIEND, LIFE IS FULL OF WEEDS

WITHOUT A REAL GOOD FRIEND.. WITHOUT A REAL GOOD FRIEND
