A Dog Named Bo
by Jimmy Stewart

He never came to me when I would call
Unless I had a tennis ball
or he felt like it
But mostly he didn’t come at all.

When he was young he never learned to heal or sit or stay
He did things his way.
Discipline was not his bag
But when you were with him things sure didn’t drag.

He’d dig up a rose bush just to spite me
And when I’d grab him he’d turn and bite me.
He bit lots of folks from day to day
The delivery boy was his favorite prey.

The gas man wouldn’t read our meter
He said we owned a real man eater.

He set the house on fire
But the story’s long to tell
Suffice to say that he survived
And the house survived as well.

And on evening walks, and Gloria took him
He was always first out the door.
The old one and I brought up the rear
Because our bones were sore

And he’d charge up the street with Mom hangin’ on
What a beautiful pair they were
And if it was still light and the tourists were out
They created a bit of a stir.

But every once in a while he’d stop in his tracks
And with a frown on his face, look around.
It was just to make sure that the old one was there
To follow him where he was bound.

We’re early to bedders in our house
I guess I’m the first to retire
And as I’d leave the room he’d look at me
And get up from his place by the fire

He knew where the tennis balls were upstairs
And I’d give him one for a while
And he’d push it under the bed with his nose
And I’d dig it out with a smile

But before very long he’d tire of the ball
And he’d be asleep in his corner in no time at all

And there were nights when I’d feel him climb upon our bed
And lie between us and I’d pat his head

And there were nights when I’d feel this stare
And I’d wake up and he’d be sitting there.
And I’d reach out to stroke his hair
And sometimes I’d feel him sigh

And I think I know the reason why.
He’d wake up at night and he would have this fear
Of the dark, of life, of lots of things
And he’d be glad to have me near.

And now he’s dead
And there are nights when I think I feel him climb upon our bed
And lie between us
And I'd pat his head

And there are nights when I think I feel that stare
And I reach out my hand to stroke his hair
And he’s not there, oh how I wish that wasn't so
I’ll always love a dog named Bo.
