The Doggie I Asked For……
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.
What's Her Name stole this poem from a great new blog-
The poem certainly holds true- especially wiht The Thai Master and his Cushings and Princess Snausage (aka Ginger) who, while claiming to be housebroken, certainly leaves a great many lake effect puddles in her wake on a daily basis!
