                    To pet a happy dog will warm your heart,
                    Eliciting her groans of gratitude;
                    It’s how to get off to a friendly start
                    And how to pass an idle interlude.

                    A dog will teach you how to keep in touch
                    By making your affection palpable;
                    Whether your home’s a mansion or a hutch,
                    It’s only happy if your heart is full,

                   And that is what a pup or dog can do:
                   It doesn’t matter where you might reside
                   Or what activities you might pursue;
                   So long as there’s attention you provide,

                       A dog will love in ways few people do
                      With loyalty that’s palpable and true.
