Dog Ownership

by Margie Parsons

To want me as your Pet and your Friend
Follow these rules, and PLEASE DO NOT BEND!

Just like humans of this society
We too come in an assorted variety

Treat us with kindness; we come to you with LOVE
In return our affection is unconditional devotion
Which is displayed through continuous motion

Our historical arrival was on Noah’s Ark
Providing all humans a chance to inspire
A capacity to show a diverse and compassionate desire

As your Friend, we quietly share your life
Be it a day of happiness or strife

As Companions, we are responsible for each other
We are each other’s Guardians remaining alert
To ensure with confidence that each one of us doesn’t get hurt

So be realistic when selecting your Pet as your Friend
That you are attentive from beginning to end
