Dog Family

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.
