I found this on the net right after we got our little puppy home and it tells just how I feel !
A Stump For A Tail
You can’t buy loyalty, they say,
I bought it though, the other day;
You can’t buy friendship, tried and true,
Well, just the same, I bought that too.
I made my bid, and on the spot
Bought love and faith and a whole job lot
Of happiness,so all in all
The purchase price was pretty small.
I bought a single, trusting heart,
That gave devotion from the start.
If you think these things are not for sale,
Buy a brown-eyed puppy with a stump for a tail.
