Dogs are kids
Kids are dogs
Raise them the same
They value the same
Raise them different
Confuse their imprint
Teach either to love
They will love
Teach either to hate
They will hate
Raise them right
They won’t bite
Unless you tell them to
If they value the pack
All defend from attack
If they value themselves
We did right for ourselves

A poem for my son.

From the moment I first opened my eyes
It was loud and bright but blurry
I remember her voice as I met mommy
But I was taken from her in a hurry

I didn’t start out my life so easy
Mommy was so worried for lil’ me
But it was for all to be short lived
I soon began to meet my family tree

Since I’ve finally left where I met my parents
I met more of my family and my home
Each day I listen and learn and play
I’ve also done all sorts and really grown

I may be new unto this great big world
But I love all it has given me so far
I’ve got a great family filled with love and joy
I can’t wait for my next trip in…

Zzzz…sorry I fell asleep in the car.
