A Dog's Prayer

Treat me kindly my beloved friend,
for no heart in all the world is
more greatful for the kindness than the
loving heart of me.

Do not break my spirit with a stick,
for thought I should lick your hand
between blows, your patience & understanding
will more quickly teach me
the things you would have me learn.

Speak to me often, for your voice is
the worlds sweetest music, as you must
know by the fierce wagging of my tail
when your footsteps fall upon my
wating ears.

Please take me inside when it is cold
and wet, for I am a domesticated animal
not accustomed to bitter elements, and
I ask no greater glory than the
privilege of sitting beside you.

Keep my pan filled with fresh water,
for I can not tell you when I suffer
thirst. And, my friend, when I am very
old, if God sees fit to deprive me of
my health and sight, do not turn me
away from you. Rather see that my
trusting life is taken gently, and
I shall leave knowing with the last
breath I draw that my fate was always
safest in your hands.
