My Blessings, My Dogs
Brown eyes sparkle with playful hearts,
Compact bodies so strong and smart.
Inquisitive always, curious at will,
Ready to play, or just be still.
Reaching my hand, I always find,
Nothing that compares, to humankind.
Faithful and loving, devoted friends,
Ready to play, eager to defend.
My dogs are with me no matter where,
In times of fun, or loss or despair.
A treasured gift from God above,
To show us all the meaning of love.

Blessings to all who open their hearts to the kingdom of
animals, for they will know the joy of a deeper form of love and life. Peace
to all who care, love, and respect animals.
