    Default Poem...

    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.

    They sure keep us humble don't they? (and with a hand in the treat jar... ). I crossposted this over to Irishanimals.com too.
