Dogs are marvellous creations
And perfect in all their ways,
And although their life span is very short
They enrich our every day.
Dog is god spelt backwards
And the resemblance is easy to see,
Since their characteristics are god-like
And can be a lesson to you and me.
They’re loyal, sweet and loving
And they have an unconditional love…
They would lay down their lives for us
And their playfulness is never enough.
Although they cannot speak
They communicate with their eyes,
And their silence is loud indeed
They’re clever and very wise.
They guard and protect us
And always give a warning,
Of potential intruders or thieves indeed
And they greet us with licks each morning.
A dog is man’s best friend
And it’s plain and clear to see;
They’re attentive, smart and teachable
And all they’re created to be.
Although their life span is short
We can all learn so much,
And the memories they create will always stay
Along with their tender touch.
Be very aware if a dog doesn’t like
A particular person indeed,
Since they’re sensitive to the spiritual realm
And can see what we can’t see.
They’re a treasured gift from God
And they are unlike any other;
Created to be a comfort indeed
It’s so easy to be a dog lover.
They’re an epitome of love wrapped in fluff
And they always give us more;
Let’s rejoice for being blessed with them
As they are certainly to be adored.
