A Poem for the New Puppy OwnerDon't smell crotches,
Don't eat plants.
Don't steal food
Don't eat my socks,
Don't grab my hair. . .
DON'T RIP THE STUFFINGFROM THAT CHAIR!
Don't eat those peas!
Don't touch that bush!
Don't chew my shoes. . .
What IS that mush?
Eat your cookie,
Drink your drink,
Outta the toilet!
Outta the sink!
AWAY FROM THE CAT BOX,I
T'S FOR THE CAT!
(And MUST you kiss me
Yes, raising a puppy,
Is not for the lazy.
Though puppies are funny,
They're also quite crazy.
But don't despair
Though its toil and strife,
After 3 yearsYou'll get back your life!So, let's go for "walkies,
"You can "do your thing"
And perhaps I'll get back
MY GOOD DIAMOND RING!)

The best way to get a puppy is to beg for a baby brother - and they'll settle for a puppy every time.

Dog Owner's Prayer
Oh Lord, don't let me once forgetHow much I love my trusty pet.
Help me learn to disregardThe canine craters in my yard.
Show me how to be a buddyEven when my sofa's muddy!
Don't allow my pooch to munchThose postal workers for his lunch.
Shield my neighbour's cat from viewAnd guide my steps around the doo.
Train me not to curse and scowlWhen it's puppy's night to howl.
Grant I shan't awake in fearWith a cold nose in my ear.
Give me patience without end.Help me be my dog's "best friend".
A Precious Charge
"I'll lend you for a little timeA dog of mine" he said.For you to love while he livesAnd mourn for when he's dead.
It maybe six or seven yearsOr maybe more than these,But will you, till I call him back,Take care of him for me?
He'll bring his charm to gladden you,And should his stay be brief,You'll have his memories,As solace for your grief.
I cannot promise he will stay,Aince all from earth return,But there are lessons taught down there,I want this dog to learn.
I've looked this wide world over,In my search for teachers true,And from the throngs that crowd life's lanes,I have selected you.
Now will you give him all your love,Nor think the labour vain,Nor hate me when I come to call,And take him back again?"
Shelter him with tenderness,Love him while you may,And for the happiness you'll know,Forever grateful stay!"
