Choosing the Right Pet



You can’t buy loyalty, they say

I bought it, though, the other day.

You can’t buy friendship, tried and true.

Well, just the same, I bought that too.

I made my bid and on the spot

Bought love and faith and a whole

Lot of happiness; so all in all

The purchase price was pretty small.

I bought a simple, trusting heart

That gave devotion from the start.

If you think these things are not for sale,

Buy a brown-eyed pup with a wagging tail.
