A Greyhound Owner's Prayer.
Lord, Grant unto me the strength to take care of this worthy creature
To attend to his daily needs with selfless devotion
Putting him not before me, but beside me
So that I may reap the rewards of his unconditional love.
Will unto me faith and understanding
That his is a simple life, requiring my continued patience
He does not do things out of malice or spite
His love is pure and without such human frailties
Share with me your eternal wisdom
For the moments of trial and crisis which come without warning
Let me make the best decisions from my head
Though my heart may be breaking, let me do what is best for my friend
For he hath given me such joy and happiness
Sometimes finding me at my darkest moments and showing me the light
The true path we were meant to walk on with these creatures
To learn life's lessons, together -
And to wait for me under Rainbow Bridge
As I once guided him to a better life on Earth,
So will he do for me in Heavan.
Please God, Grant unto me the strength to take care of this worthy creature
Bless me once more as you did the day he came into my life,
For his creation was truly a miracle.
