My best friend closed his eyes last nite,
As his head was in my hand.
The doctors said he was in pain,
And it was hard for him to stand.
The thoughts that scurried thru my head,
As I cradled him in my arms.
Were of his younger, puppy years,
And Oh --- his many charms.
Today, there was no gentle nudge
With an intense "I love you gaze",
Only a heart that's filled with tears
Remembering our joy filled days.
But an Angel just appeared to me,
And he said, "You should cry no more,
God also loves our canine friends,
He's installed a 'doggy-door!"
(c) 1997 Mary Ellen Arthur
A faithful dog will play with you,
And laugh with you - or - cry
He'll gladly starve to stay with you,
Nor ever reason why.
And when you're feeling out of sorts,
Somehow he'll understand.
He'll watch you with his shining eyes,
And try to lick your hand.
His blind, inplicit faith in you,
Is matched by his great love.
The kind that allof us should have,
For the Master up Above.
When everything is said and done,
I guess it isn't odd.
For when you spell "dog" backwards,
You will get the name of God!
by Nick Kenny
When God had made the earth and sky,
The flowers and the trees.
He then made all the animals,
The fish, the birds and the bees.
And when at last He'd finished,
Not one was quite the same.
He said, "I'll walk this world of mine,
And give each one a name."
And so he traveled far and wide
And everywhere He went,
A little creature followed him
Until it's strength was spent.
When all were named upon the earth
And in the sky and sea,
The little creature said, "Dear Lord,
There's not one left for me."
Kindly the Father said to him,
"I've left you to the end.
I've turned my own name back to front
And called you dog, my friend."
