Dog Loyalty

You can't buy loyalty, they say,
I bought it though, the other day;

You can't buy friendship, tried and true,
Well just the same, I bought that too.

I made my bid, and on the spot
Bought love and faith and a whole job lot of happiness,

An adorable brown puppy

So all in all, the purchase price was pretty small.
I bought a single trusting heart,
That gave devotion from the start.

If you think these things are not for sale,
Buy a brown-eyed puppy with a stump for a tail.
