Dog Owner’s Prayer
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’!
