    I was unable to read the poem. It did not come up on my IPAD. Would have really liked to have read it.

  4. Very touching poem as this very day we are having trouble with our older dog Marlin who has been the best dog in the world. He’s 12 and has grown up with my granddaughter. What a wonderful dog and it so breaks my heart to think of going on without him. Jimmy Stewart was an exceptional person in many ways.

  5. Found it while surfing. I thoroughly enjoyed the poem. I write a little poetry myself from time to time. I have dogs & have raised them. I can totally identify with James’ feelings about his dog. It takes a special person to express his feelings in the words. And, James does that!!!

    I remember seeing that on the Carson show when it first aired–I loved it then when I was just a young person – as I do now!
