A Prayer for Dogs

Dog
"Dear lord, as we start each day
There's just one gift for which I pray
Please watch over all dogs everywhere
And bless them with someone to care.

Watch over the pups with plenty to eat
And the hungry strays out on the street
Those getting treats each time they yap
And those who struggle for every scrap

Those that sleep on a nice soft bed
Those with hard ground under their head
Those who play with girls and boys
And those who never have any toys

Those kept clipped and brushed and clean
And scruffy ones that don't smell too keen
Those who get to ride in cars
And those that sit behind cage bars

Those that flunk obedience school
Dig up the yard, snore and drool
Chew up your stuff, chase the cat
And they're still loved in spite of that

And those that are as good as gold
But left out to shiver in the cold
Chained up and forgotten there
They long for a warm home to share

Please God, as we end each night
Help more people do what's right
For each dog they meet, to do their best
And send your comfort to all the rest."

Please pray for my dog Bo who I had to adopt out. I feel like I betrayed my best friend, bur supposedly a vet was going to adopt him. Her practice took him in not the vet herself. I was devastated as the friend who made the arrangement me she would adopt him her self. It is his vet of 21 years and I believe it was a misunderstanding and I pray that God looks over him. My heart is broken but I will heal up I just hope my dog gets a good home and is treated right he is 10 yrs old a black lab very kind hearted and gentle. God please forgive me and protect my dog.

God please look over my dog Bo a ten year old Black lab who has a kind heart and is very gentle . I pray that he gets a good home as he is up for adoption. A vet was supposed to adopt him herself which is why I did it along with the fact he has health problems. He is at the vets but she is not personally going to adopt him.
I pray God you protect him and find him a good home.
