A Dog Owner's Prayer

Don't let me once forget
How I love my faithful pet.
Help me learn to disregard
Canine craters in my yard.
Show me how to be a friend
Even when my sofa's at the end.
Shield my neighbor's cat from view.
Guide my steps around the poo.
Train me not to curse and scowl
When it's puppy's night to howl.
Grant I should not awake in fear
With a cold nose in my ear.
Give me patience without end.
Help me be A Dog's Best Friend.
