When I Got My New Dog

Author Unknown

* I asked for strength that I might rear him perfectly;
I was given weakness that I might feed him more treats.

* I asked for good health that I might rest easy;
I was given a "special needs" dog that I might know nurturing.

* I asked for an obedient dog that I might feel proud;
I was given stubbornness that I might feel humble.

* I asked for compliance that I might feel masterful;
I was given a clown that I might laugh.

* I asked for a companion that I might not feel lonely;
I was given a best friend that I would feel loved.

* I got nothing I asked for,
But everything that I needed.
