A Dogs Prayer

Treat me kindly, my beloved master, for no heart in all the world is more grateful for kindness than the loving heart of me. Do not break my spirit with a stick for although I should lick your hand between the blows, your patience and understanding will more quickly teach me the things you would have me do.

Speak to me often, for your voice is the worlds sweetest music, as you must know by the fierce wagging of my tail when your footsteps fall upon my waiting ear.

When it is cold and wet, please take me inside..... for I am a domesticated animal, no longer used to bitter elements..... and I ask no greater glory than the privilege of sitting at your feet beside the hearth.... though had you no home, I would rather follow you through ice and snow than rest upon the softest pillow in the warmest home in all the land, for you are my god and I am your devoted worshiper.

Keep my pan filled with fresh water, for although I should not reproach you were it dry, I cannot tell you when I suffer thirst. Feed me clean food, that I may stay well, to romp and play and do your bidding, to walk by your side, and stand ready, willing and able to protect you with my life, should your life be in danger.

And, beloved master, should the Great Master see fit to deprive me of my health or sight, do not turn me away from you. Rather hold me gently in your arms as skilled hands grant me the merciful boon of eternal rest... and I will leave you knowing with the last breath I drew, my fate was ever safest in your hands.

If a dog was the teacher you would learn stuff like:

        * When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.

 * Never passup the opportunity to go for a joyride. Allow the experience of fresh air
and the wind in your face to be pure ecstasy.

       * When it's in your best interest, practice obedience.

       *Let others know when they've invaded your territory.

       * Take naps. Stretch before rising.  Run, romp, and play daily!

       * Thrive on attention and let people touch you.

       * Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.

       * On warm days, stop to lie on your back on the grass.

      * On hot days, drink lots of water and lie under a shady tree.

       * When you're happy, dance around and wag your entire body.

       * No matter how often you're scolded, don't buy into the guilt
thing and pout..! run right back and make friends.

       * Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.

       * Eat with gusto and enthusiasm. Stop when you have had enough.

       * Be loyal. Never pretend to be something you're not.

       * If what you want what lies buried, dig until you find it.

       * When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by and
nuzzle them gently.
