Help Me Be My Golden's Best Friend

O Lord, don’t let me once forget, How I love my trusty pet
Help me learn to disregard — canine craters in my yard
Show me how to be a buddy, even when my sofa’s muddy,
Don’t allow my pooch to munch — postal carriers for lunch,
Shield my neighbor’s cat from view, guide my steps around the doo,
Train me not to curse and scowl, when it’s puppy’s night to howl,
Grant I shan’t awake in fear — with a cold nose in my ear,
Give me patience without end, Help me be a Golden’s best friend.
