Waggletail! Licky-lick! Jump up, my Rover!
I love you! I love you! Sweet little nipper!
Sit for me! Shake my hand! Now roll on over!
Whine a bit! Beg a bit! Bring me my slipper!
Lie you down next to me; Make me all cozy!
Curl up and close your eyes; Drift off and slumber!
Get warm and snuggle up! Dream dreams so rosy!
Trust in me! Loyalty! No cares encumber!
Wolf your food! Lick the bowl! Lap up your water!
Fetch the ball! Chase your tail! After the squirrel!
Growl at it! Bark a bit! It's what a dog oughter
Do....Play with me! 'Round the tree---Give me a whirl!
Take a walk! By my heel! Don't go to the potty
On the street! Please be neat! Gnaw on your bone!
Scratch the floor by the door---"No, no---that's naughty!"
Yes, my pet....Love you yet! Won't leave you alone.
Chase the cat! Where's she at? Beware of her paw-paw!
Jump and run! Have more fun! After the frisbee!
Come and eat at my feet....Here's a dog-bone treat!
Love you so! Do you know what you mean to me?
