17. To Snowball And All The Dogs And Their Owners

contributed by jennalynn2
(This poem is dedicated to all the dogs from the Hurricane who were affected and their owners. You will always be in my thoughts...)

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 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."

Thank you for thinking about God's precious earth angels - - dogs.
They are truly a gift to us. Thank you for posting.

My husband and I agree that we couldn't give up our dogs. My animals are my children to me. I can't begin to imagine the pain of losing my home, and then having to give up 'my children'

My niece, a policewoman, rescued my nephew's, a policeman, dog from his old office in New Orleans. They both had to stay there, save lives and fight the "bad guys" through this ordeal. They both lost friends to this tragedy. It meant so much to him to have his "pal" saved.
