A Dog’s Life

Running and romping in the park
In your lap I lay down my head
Snuggling in when it turns dark
Keeping watch while you are in bed.

Lazy days laying in the sun
Chasing a frisbee or a ball
Always ready to have some fun
Waiting to hear  my master’s call.

At his side is where I will be
Protecting he and all that’s his
With no desire to be free
Happy with things just as it is.
