I learnt a lesson not too long ago,
When I took my dog to an All Breeds show.
As I watched him standing in the ring,
I overheard a comment which hurt with a sting.

'Twas then I realised there in a trice,
Don't say anything if it isn't nice.
Each dog may have his faults in your eyes,
You may not like his colour, movement or size.

But to the person who loves him he's the most perfect thing,
That's why he's showing him there in the ring!
We'd all like to win, but there aren't many blues,
The judge may not give one to your dog and you.

So remember,each dog is a winner in his own master's heart,
So please don't stand there and pick him apart.
