God, if a dog
is man's best friend,
a puppy is his best cuddly pet:
symbols of innocence and the hopes
of tomorrow, incomparable bundles of energy, adventure,
loyalty and love.
Puppies want only to explore and to please, and they
we could be so eager and giving
Would that we could ask so little
and give so much.
Would that we could please You
always as we should!
Let us take a lesson in trust and gratitude,
in unconditional love, in future possibility,
from these, Your furry, cuddly little innocents.
Lord of all Creation,
for the glorious gift and the role model
bless all puppies,
and bring them all to heaven
and please bless all of us as well.
