<TD width=645>I will lend to you for a while, a Rottweiler pup, God said for you to love him while he lives and mourn him when he's dead. Maybe for twelve or fourteen years, or maybe two or three. But will you, till I call him back, take care of him for me?
He'll bring his charms to gladden you, and should his stay be brief, you'll always have his memories as solace for your grief. I cannot promise he will stay, since all from earth return. But there are lessons taught below I want this pup to learn. I've looked the whole world over in search of teachers true, and from the folk that crowds life's land, I have chosen you. Now will you give him all your love, nor think the labor vain, nor hate me when I come to take my Rottie back again.
I fancied that I heard them say "Dear Lord Thy Will Be Done". For all the joys this Rott will bring, the risk of grief we'll run. We'll shelter him with tenderness, we'll love him while we may. And for the happiness we have known, forever grateful stay.
But should you call him back much sooner than we've planned,
If, by our love, we've managed, your wishes to achieve, the memory of him and his love, will help us while we grieve.
When our faithfull bundle departs this world of strife we'll have yet another Rottweiler and love him all his life.</TD>
