I Wish I Were A Dog

I wish I were a dog.
I could use a bed of belly, paws and warm fur.
I would like a pair of floppy ears to wrap my head with.
I should be happy with a full bowl, a roof, a hug everyday.

I wish I were a cute dog, the kind that strangers would smile at.
I could smile back with a woof, do what I am told, and be praised.
I would make my owner proud of my doggy intelligence, pluck and spark.
I should be happy with a pretty name, walks on sunny days, with someone I love.

I wish I were as happy as a dog. The cute kind, the kind that is loved especially.
