For the Love of a Dog
How wonderful it is when a dog decides to be
Part of your life, giving love you can see.
She has her desires like food, treats and a good run,
But what makes her happy is when you say, "Come!"
Her vocabulary expands as you teach new words
Responding when you say, "Outside," "toy" or "birds"!
Oh the joy she shows by just being near
And sitting together while rubbing her ear.
She somehow lets you know without any words to speak,
Her actions and looking eyes express what she seeks.
Her eyes show love when she looks at you
It's really amazing no matter what you do.
God, your gift of a dog is a wonderment, it's true.
Her unconditional love reminds us of You!
