A Happy Dog's Bedtime Prayer

Dedicated to Jackson and Ava, who live this life every night...

Now I lay me down to sleep,
The queen-sized bed is soft and deep.
I sleep right in the center groove,
My human being can hardly move.
I've trapped her legs,
She's tucked in tight,
And here is where I pass the night.
No one disturbs me or dares intrude,
Til morning comes and I want food.

I sneak up slowly and it begins,
My nibbles on my human's chin.
She wakes up slowly and smiles and shouts,
"You darling beast!
Just cut it out!"
But morning's here and it's time to play,
I always seem to get my way.

So thank you Lord, for giving me
This human person that I see.
The one who holds me oh so tight,
And shares her bed with me at night!

Where did you find that? It's so funny, I had to forward it to quentin. Even though we have two cats not two dogs, it sounds completely right on! I loved the pics of Ava in your jacket, she is so cute :)
