New Friends

We had relatives in town recently, 
and we all got together for dinner at the home of my brother and sister in law.  
It's always good to renew acquaintances with family we haven't seen for a while, 
but a new friendship was also forged that evening, 
between 7 year old Jacob and 6 year old Barley.  
If any boy and dog were meant to be friends, these 2 were.  
Jacob was enthralled with his power over Barley.  
"Sit", he would say, or "lay down", and Barley would comply.  
Jacob's favorite command was "shake", and neither he nor Barley tired of it all evening.
For his part, Barley was eating up all the attention.  

In a perfect world, Jacob would have a dog like Barley, 
but of course, in a perfect world, 
so would everyone.

In a perfect world, I would have a dog just like Barley--and maybe a cute little boy like Jacob to play with him. Oh, wait! I have a cute little boy... and Wyatt would LOVE Barley.
