[at-l] A Trail Dog's Prayer

(an adaptation of "A Kitten's Prayer")

A Trail Dog's Prayer

Now I lay me down to sleep,
The mummy bag is soft and deep..
I sleep right in the center groove
My human cannot hardly move!
I've trapped his legs, he's tucked in tight
And here is where I pass the night
No one disturbs me or dares intrude
Till morning comes and "I want food!"
I sneak up slowly to begin
my nibbles on my human's chin.
He wakes up quickly,
I have sharp teeth. and a sloppy tongue.
For the morning here
and it's time to play
always seem to get my way.
So thank you Lord for giving me
This human person that I see.
The one who hugs me and holds me tight
And sacrifices his bed at night!
