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.
