O Lord of all creatures, grant that man, my master, be as faithful to others as I am to him.
Make him as
loving towards his family and friends as I am loving to him.
Grant that he may guard with honesty the good things with
which Thou has endowed him as honestly as I guard his.
Give him, O Lord, a happy and ready smile, as happy and spontaneous
as the wagging of my tail.
Make him as ready to show gratitude as I am eager to lick his hand.
patience as great as mine when I await his return without complaining.
Grant him my courage and my readiness to sacrifice
all for him, even my own life.
May he possess my youthful spirit and joy of thought.
O Lord of all creatures,
as I am in truth only a dog, may my master always be truly a man.
