Will you teach me all about your world?
Translate your language into mine?
Will you help me to succeed
and reward me when I try?
Can you laugh at my mistakes
and accept my imperfections?
When I try and somehow fail,
Can you adjust your expectations?
Will you control me enough to keep me safe,
but give me freedom to explore?
Will I know that I am special?
Of your love will I be sure?
Can I run and bark and chew and chase?
Not always SIT and STAY.
Will your voice be music to my ears
and my name mean come and play?
Will I be the dog you dreamed of?
True companions, you and me.
Will you lead me through example?
Help me reach my destiny.
