A Dog Owner's Prayer
Another wonderful listing from the ListServ.
O Lord don't let me once forget
How I love my trusty pet ---
Help me learn to disregard canine craters in my yard,
Show me how to be a buddy even when my sofa's muddy,
Don't allow my pooch to munch postal carriers for lunch,
Shield my neighbor's cat from view, guide my steps around the doo,
Train me not to curse and scowl when it's puppy's night to howl.
Grant I shan't awake in fear with a cold nose in my ear
Give me patience without end ---
Help me be "A Dog's Best Friend"!
