Now I lay me down to sleep…


Now I lay me down to sleep,
The king-size bed is soft and deep.
I sleep right in the center groove
My human being can hardly move!
I’ve trapped her legs, she’s tucked in tight
And here is where I pass the night
No one disturbs me or dares intrude
Till morning comes and “I want food!”
I sneak up slowly to begin
my nibbles on my human’s chin.
She wakes up quickly,
I have sharp teeth-
I’m a puppy, don’t you see?
For the morning’s here
and it’s time to play
I always seem to get my way.
So thank you for giving me
This human person that I see.
The one who hugs and holds me tight
And shares her bed with me at night!

What would I do without you
My precious, furry friend?…
Part mischief, but all blessing,
And faithful to the end!

You look at me with eyes of love:
You never hold a grudge…
You think I’m far too wonderful
To criticize or judge.

It seems your greatest joy in life
Is being close to me…
I think God knew how comforting
Your warm, soft fur would be.

I know you think your human,
But I’m glad it isn’t true…
The world would be a nicer place
If folks we’re more like you!

A few short years is all we have:
One day we’ll have to part…
But you my pet, will always have
A place within my heart.

My Dog Lives Here


My dog lives here, he’s here to stay.
You don’t like pets, be on your way.
He shares my home, my food, my space
This is his home, this is his place.

You will find dog hair on the floor,
He will alert you’re at the door.
He may request a little pat,
A simple “no” will settle that.

It gripes me when I hear you say
“just how is it you live this way?
He smells, he sheds, he’s in the way….”
WHO ASKED YOU? Is all I can say….

He loves me more than anyone,
My voice is like the rising sun,
He merely has to hear me say
“C’mon Mason, time to play.”

Then his tail wags and his face grins,
He bounces and hops and makes a din.
He never says “no time for you”,
he’s always there, to GO and DO.

And if I’m sad? He’s by my side
And if I’m mad? He circles wide
And if I laugh, he laughs with me
He understands, he always sees.

So once again, I say to you
Come visit me, but know this too….

My dog lives here, he’s here to stay.
You don’t like pets, be on your way.
He shares my home, my food, my space
This is his home, this is his place.
