Your Dog


Your dog may have a pedigree... As far as records reach... And
it may be obedient... To everything you teach... Or it may be a
common mutt... That lingers at your feet... Because somewhere
it found you, as... You walked along the street... It may become
a champion... Or just a household pet...But if you love that
animal... It never will forget... For every pat you give it, and...
For every friendly smile... Your dog will cuddle up to you... And
follow you each mile... It will be truly loyal, and... Protect you
to the end... Yes, it will even die for you... To prove it is your
friend.
