A Dog's Plea

Treat me kindly my dear friend
for no heart in the world
is more grateful for kindness
than the loving heart of me!
Do not break my spirit with a stick
for I should lick your hand between the blows!
Your Patience and understanding will more qiuckly teach me
the things you would have me learn!
Speak to me often, for your voice is the World's sweetest music,
as you must know by the fierce wagging of my tail
when your footsteps fall upon my waiting ear!
Please take me inside when it is cold and wet,
for I am a domesticated animal no longer accustomed to the bitter
elements!
I ask no greater glory than the privilege of sitting at your feet beside the
hearth!
Keep my pan filled with fresh water,for I can not tell you when I thirst!
Feed me clean food that I must stay well, to romp and play and do your
bidding,
to walk by your side and stand ready and willing to
protect you with my life should you be in danger!
And my friend, when I am very old
and I know longer enjoy good health, hearing and sight,
do not make heroic efforts to keep me going, for I am not having fun.
Please see that my trusting life is taken gently and
I shall leave this Earth knowing, with the last breath I draw,
that my fate was always safest in your hands!!

A righteous man regardth the life of his beast... Proverbs 12:10
Little Puppy

Little Puppy, sitting there.
In the field midst daisies fair,
Wary-eyed you look at me;
Are you lost... or could it be,
Someone put you in this place,
All alone this World to face?

Soon the sun fill fade from sight,
And the day will turn to night.
You've no drink or food to eat;
Come, I'll take you home with me.
Little things need loving care....
Perhaps that's why God put me here!
