The Puppies Property Law
1. If I like it, it's Mine.
2. If it's in my mouth, It's Mine.
3. If I can take it away from you it's Mine.
4. If I had it a little while ago, it's Mine.
5. If it's Mine, it must never even appear to
be yours, in any way.
6. If I'm chewing something up, all the
pieces are Mine.
7. If it looks like it could be mine, it's Mine
8. If I saw it first, it's Mine.
9. If you are playing with it and you put it
down, it automatically becomes Mine.
10. If it gets broken and Mom gets mad, it's
Yours, I never saw it.
A Faithful Dog
A faithful dog will play with you
And laugh with you -- or cry.
He'll gladly starve to stay with you
Nor ever reason why.
And when you're feeling out of sorts
Somehow he'll understand.
He'll watch you with his shining eyes
And try to lick your hand.
His blind, implicit faith in you
Is matched by his great love--
The kind that all of us should have
In the Master, up above.
When everything is said and done,
I guess this isn't odd---
For when you spell 'DOG' backwards,
You get the name of GOD.
I WANT MY BOY TO HAVE A DOG,
OR MAYBE TWO OR THREE...
HE'LL LEARN FROM THEM MUCH EASIER
THAN HE WOULD LEARN FROM ME.
A DOG WILL SHOW HIM HOW TO LOVE
AND BEAR NO GRUDGE OR HATE;
I'M NOT SO GOOD AT THAT MYSELF
BUT DOGS WILL DO IT STRAIGHT.
I WANT MY BOY TO HAVE A DOG
TO BE HIS PAL AND FRIEND,
SO HE MAY LEARN THAT FRIENDSHIP
IS FAITHFUL TO THE END.
THERE NEVER YET HAS BEEN A DOG
WHO LEARNED TO DOUBLE-CROSS,
NOR CATERED TO YOU WHEN YOU WON
THEN DROPPED YOU WHEN YOU LOST.
"As Long as Forever"
As long as forever I will stay by your side-
I'll be your companion, your friend and
As long as I live, and as long as you care-
I'll do anything for you; I'll go anywhere.
I'll bring you the sunshine I'll comfort
I'll gather up the rainbows to chase all
As long as forever my heart will be true
For as long as I live - I'll always love you.
