When I asked God for a companion that suits
I knew He exists when I first saw your boots
They say always the things that they do
The know-it know-alls who must ballyhoo
They that keep at it, and at it they do
Who think they know better critters like you
It took me a while to understand
And not be concerned with being in command
Let’s consider the facts; let’s just be fair
Isn’t you who truly bear
The brunt of the work
As you manage to lift your master
Out from utter despair?
We hit the street the sidewalk the trail
While you pant like a girl hunting for quail
Unbridled your spirit propelled against surf
Lockstep with seagulls at their own turf
Chase critters, oh my! What thrill
Coyote, lion, deer. You will!
They all run away scared over hill…
And as I trace your steps tick-tock back down
You appear across the meadow, nose exhilarated and brown
Your prowess stuns even them hard to impress
Kid, You Are Remarkable! I must confess
The day is done now, lay there to mend
Even in dreams I know you intend
Keep keeping on hop-hop ho-ho!
You, me, together, places we go!
