When God had made the earth and sky, the flowers and trees,
He then made all the animals and all the birds and bees.
And when His work was finished not one was quite the same
He said, I`ll walk this earth of mine and give each one a name.
And so He travelled land and sea and everywhere He went,
A little creature followed Him, until his 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.
The Father smiled and softly said, I`ve left you to the end.
I`ve turned my own name back to front and
called you DOG, my friend.
(I like the sentiment in the poem but personally in this world where so many little children and animals suffer - I don't believe there is a God looking after them. More like their Guardian Angels in the form of volunteers and adopters.!)
