We spend our life trying to love and be happy,
Dogs know how to do this as a little puppy.
A puppy loves you right from the very start,
Then it loves you for life with all of its heart.
Dogs can show love by wagging their tails.
Often we do not show our love and it fails.
Dogs may not live for as long as me and you,
But, they give more love in less time too.
We can learn a lot from our dogs about living,
Like unconditional love and a lifetime of giving.
Dogs may be dumb but their love is so true,
I guess we are too smart to love like they do.
Had you rather be dumb with a happy heart
Or be unhappy because you’re too smart?
A hug, a smile, and the words. “I love you”,
Might not be such a dumb thing to do!!
