A Dog's Best Friend

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."
