Tribute to Man's Best Friend
They greet you with a friendly tail wag
And large eyes that reveal the kindest soul
They make life anything but a drag
They can lift your spirits right up out of a hole.
They have brows that show their feelings
They turn their head in funny ways
You can fuss at them for some of their 'dealings'
Yet they always seem to brighten your days.
They can tell when something isn't right
And they'll come to the rescue in a flash,
Whether that means giving a bad guy a bite
Or even chasing down a burglar in a dash.
Or they can slobber you all over with kisses
Because you come home after a long hard day;
We laugh at them for some of their misses
Yet we'll do anything for them, come what may.
Yes, we've always called them man's best friend
Who knows how the first friendship really went?
But I can tell you; they'll love you till the end.
These furry creatures are surely Heaven-sent.
