I welcomed you in my home
I gave you love, food and shelter
We became so intimate
When you ran, I ran
When you walked, I walked
You led me down the garden path
Your body against mine so warm
Your hurried breath so soft in my ear
As we snuggled on the sofa bed.
I reached out to stroke your lovely hair
Then you turned and bit the hand that fed you
But I don't blame you
After all, you're just a pup!

Ah, you were truly led down the garden path. Maybe you should bite back??

Oh, those pups! I hear chew toys are a good thing. ;)
