My Favorite Dog Poem

I'm about to take my little doggie animal companion out for a walk on this beautiful day, but I wanted to share this poem. It always makes me tear up a bit :)

'The Creation'

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 this world of mine
and give each one a name."

And so he travelled 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."
