A Boy and His Dog

This is a really great poem for all dog lovers!

A Boy and His Dog

I want my boy to have a dog
Or maybe two or three.
He'll learn from them much easier
Than he will learn from me.

A dog will teach him how to love
And bear no grudge or hate,
I'm not so good at that myself
But a dog will do it straight.

There never yet has been a dog
That learned to double-cross,
Not catered to you when you won
Then dropped you when you lost.

I want my boy to have a dog
To be his pal and friend,
So he will learn that friendship
Is faithful to the end.

By Marty Hale
