Let us give thanks for a bounty of dogs that we love and have helped!
For generous dogs... with hearts as big as hubbards and smiles as bright as their blossoms;
For feisty dogs as tart as apples;
For continuous dogs, who, like scallions and cucumbers, keep reminding us that we've had them;
For crotchety dogs, as sour as rhubarb and as indestructible;
For handsome dogs, who are as gorgeous as eggplants and as elegant as a row of corn, and the others, as plain as potatoes and so good for you;
For funny dogs, who are as silly as Brussels sprouts and as amusing as Jerusalem artichokes, and serious dogs, as complex as cauliflower and as intricate as onions;
For dogs as unpretentious as cabbages, as subtle as summer squash, as persistent as parsley, as delightful as dill, as endless as zucchini, and who, like parsnips, can be counted on to see you through the winter;
For old dogs, nodding like sunflowers in the evening-time and young dogs coming on as fast as radishes;
For loving dogs, who wind around us like tendrils and hold us, despite our blights, wilts, and witherings;
And, finally, for those dogs now gone, like gardens past that have been harvested, but who fed us in their times that we might have life thereafter; for all these we give thanks.
