Outside of a dog, a book is a man’s best friend.
Inside a dog, it’s too dark to read.
~ Groucho Marx
A Prayer For Dogs
Dear Lord, as we start each day
There is just one gift for which I pray
Please watch over all dogs everywhere
And Bless them with someone to care.
Watch over the pups with plenty to eat
And the hungry strays out on the street
Those getting treats each time they yap
And those that struggle for every scrap
Those that sleep on a nice soft bed
Those with hard ground under their head
Those who play with girls and boys
And those that never have any toys
Those kept clipped and bushed and clean
And scruffy ones that don’t smell too keen
Those who get to ride in cars
And those that sit behind cage bars.
Those that flunk obedience school
Dig up the yard, snore and drool
Chew up your stuff, chase the cat
And still they’re loved in spite of that
And those that are as good as gold
But left out to shiver in the cold
Chained up and forgotten there
They long for a warm home to share.
Please God, as we end each night
Help more people to do what’s right
For each dog they meet, to do their best
And send Your comfort to all the rest.
