The Lyrics

Some say love it is a Yorkie -
Not fooled by its small size.
Some say love it is a Westie -
Snow white with soulful eyes.
Some say love is a Rottweiler -
Who knows the reason why.
I say a Golden Retriever -
Is love personified.

It's a soul extraordinary -
With an ordinary name.
When he becomes your buddy -
Life's better than the same.
He's your only angeletto -
A miracle with fur.
He's your paisano primo -
That living teddy bear.

When the day has been too stressful -
And folks are in your face.
He makes your shelter restful -
Away from the whole rat race.
Just remember who is waiting -
Your guardian in the fog -
Greets you with his tail a wagging -
It's your friend who is the dog.

It was my intention to be humorous as well as expressing my love for pets. I hope to get around to cats eventually.

On behalf of Schatzie (German shepherd/husky mix, 1972-1987) and Teddie (Golden retriever, 1988-2000), and all the world's "Big Slobbers," I thank you.

Well, I guess you can't even poke fun at a Bette Midler song without bringing people to tears.

Not that there's anything wrong with that. "Get your shrimp here!"
