He’s loyal

Loving

Grateful

Friendly

Intelligent

Understanding

Affectionate

Alert

True

Sincere

A delightful

Sensitive companion

Eager to please,

Is easily pleased,

Always knows his own mind

Only takes what’s offered

Will live on muck and water

Doesn’t complain

Can take any treatment

From his boss,

Whom he always forgives,

Doesn’t mind if people stink

Or make a mess

Shout

Are unmannerly

Ignorant

Womanizers

Or nymphomaniacs,

Warmly welcomes his friends,

Is ready to learn

And to be trained

An adept pupil,

Dashes to save a friend in danger –

What a compliment

To be called a dog!
