How Do I Love Thee? Let Me Count The Ways...

  1. I love thee agreeably - enough to let you, stinky dog hide on the bed after a run through damp leaves, mud and slug infested gardens.
  2. I love thee steadfastly - enough to devote a year to raising you from a wobbly speck into a strong healthy adult (who promptly attempts to seize control).
  3. I love thee passionately despite your repeated efforts to probe my ears, eyes and mouth with the same tongue you use for various other atrocities.
  4. I love thee well - despite the amazing odors you produce.
  5. I love thee deeply - though you use me as a napkin at every opportunity.
  6. I love thee madly - despite the various bodily functions you have performed at inappropriate moments - in inappropriate places.
  7. I love thee constantly - despite the dog "bladder curfew" I have lived for many years.
  8. I love thee truly - despite the "doggie land mines" hidden in the grass.
  9. I love thee absolutely - because you never (well, hardly ever hog the remote control.
  10. I love thee gratefully - because you stay by my side (or on my side).
  11. I love thee devotedly - more than clean carpeting, clothing, furniture, floors or walls.
  12. I love thee bravely - enough to battle the indomitable flea on your behalf.
  13. I love thee momentarily - enough to put the vet's children through college.
  14. I love thee openly - I will bear any embarrassment for your furry sake.
  15. I love the totally - more than free time, excess cash or a  predictable  life.

A Dog Is Love

A faithful dog will play with you
And laugh with you...or cry
He'll gladly starve with you
And never reason why

When you're feeling out of sorts,
Somehow he'll understand,
He'll watch you with his shining eyes
And try to lick your hand.

His blind, implicit faith in you
Is matched by his great love.
The kind that all of us should have
In the Master up above.

When everything is said and done,
I guess this isn't odd.
For when you spell "Dog" backwards,
You will get the name of God.
