Dogmom said we could reprint this poem in the singles newsletter from the Westwood Community Church in Chanhassen, MN. She has many friends who attend that church... and sometimes when she doesn't feel like being in the company of dogs (we don't understand that at all...), she participates in some of their singles events. Anyways, here's the poem...
When God had made the earth and sky
the flowers and the trees,
He then made all the animals
the fish, the birds and bees.
And when at last He'd finished
not one was quite the same.
He said, "I'll walk the 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 its 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."
That just about says it all, doesn't it?
