Sometimes my humans yell at me to move,
But I keep wagging my tail.
Sometimes my humans want me to stop licking,
But I keep smothering them with kisses.
Sometimes my humans don’t want to hear me talk,
But I continue to tell them about my day.
For I am not the family dog.
They are the dog family.
I am their favorite puppy to spoil
With cuddles and treats and walks,
All because I am so cute, so happy, and so sweet.
They don’t know what they would do without me
To uplift them on their bad days;
I don’t know what I would do without them
To give me a home, a life, and a meaning every day.
I am not just a dog.
I am a source of happiness, of care and of love for my humans,
But I am only those things because they are a source of the same for me.
