I saw this on another forum and thought it was lovey, so would like to share it with you.
WHEN I GOT MY NEW DOG
I asked for strength that I might rear him perfectly;
I was given weakness that I might feed him more treats.
I asked for good health that I might rest easy;
I was given a "special needs" dog that I might know nurturing.
I asked for an obedient dog that I might feel proud;
I was given stubbornness that I might feel humble.
I asked for compliance that I might feel masterful;
I was given a clown that I might laugh.
I asked for a companion that I might not feel lonely;
I was given a best friend that I would feel loved.
I got nothing I asked for,
But everything that I needed. cavtiny
Oh Nicki.. I just love this... thanks for sharing
Nikki thanks for sharing the poem with us.
I enjoyed it very much. :)
Beautiful... You gotta give it up because you never know what you are gonna get. :lol:
They sure keep us humble don't they? (and with a hand in the treat jar... :roll: ). I crossposted this over to Irishanimals.com too.
