A Dog's Prayer

Treat me kindly, my beloved master, for no heart in all the world is more grateful for kindness than the loving heart of me.

Do not break my spirit with a stick, for though I should lick your hand between the blows, your patience and understanding will more quickly teach me the things you would have me do.

Speak to me often, for your voice is the world's sweetest music, as you must know by the fierce wagging of my tail when your footstep falls upon my waiting ear.

When it is cold and wet, please take me inside… for I am now a domesticated animal, no longer used to bitter elements… and I ask no greater glory than the privilege of sitting at your feet beside the hearth… though had you no home, I would rather follow you through ice and snow than rest upon the softest pillow in the warmest home in all the land… for you are my god… and I am your devoted worshiper.

Keep my pan filled with fresh water, for although I should not reproach you were it dry, I cannot tell you when I suffer thirst. Feed me clean food, that I may stay well, to romp and play and do your bidding, to walk by your side, and stand ready, willing and able to protect you with my life, should your life be in danger.

And, beloved master, should the Great Master see fit to deprive me of my health or sight, do not turn me away from you. Rather hold me gently in your arms as skilled hands grant me the merciful boon of eternal rest…and I will leave you knowing with the last breath I drew, my fate was ever safest in your hands.


La Oración de un Perro

Tratame amablemente mi querido amigo, porque no hay un corazón mas agradecido por tu bondad que el amor de mi corazon por ti.

No hieras mi espiritu con un golpe, bien podria lamer tus manos entre golpe y golpe.
Tu paciencia y tu inteligencia harán que despacio tu puedas enseñarme todas esas cosas que quisieras que yo aprenda.

Háblame seguidamente, porque tu voz es la música mas dulce del mundo como la fuerza moviendo mi rabo cuando tus pasos que espero oir se aproximan.

Por favor, manténeme dentro cuando esté frío o húmedo. Soy un animal doméstico que han acostumbrado desde siempre a elemento duros.
No te pido grandes glorias, sólo el privilegio de sentarme a tus pies además de oírte.
Guarda mi bebedero con agua fresca porque no puedo decirte cuando sufro de sed.
Aliméntame con comidas limpias.
Yo debo estar bien para retozar y jugar y obedecer tu mandato, caminar a tu lado y estar siempre listo y dispuesto a protegerte con mi vida cuando tu vida pudiera estar en peligro.

Ah!!!. Y cuando ya este viejo y no pueda mas disfrutar de la vida, ni tenga vista ni oído no hagas esfuerzos heroicos por mantenerme vivo, y no estaré teniendo ningún juego.
Por favor, mira que mi vida sea verdaderamente llevada con gentileza.
Yo abandonaré este mundo sabiendo con el último suspiro que mi destino estuvo siempre seguro en tus manos…

A happy tribute to "man's best friend", David. There's a country song on the radio right now that says "I wish you loved me like my dog does" by Billy Currington - very funny!
