Why God made a Dog

June 2009 Walnut Creek Open Space
 I first posted the poem "Why God made Dogs" in June 2009 when Chloe was 18 months old and Bailey was just 12 months old.  Now 4 and 1/2 years later, in the same spot, I took some new pictures. 
 I just love these dogs.
 When God had made the Earth and Sky, the flowers and the 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 the Earth of mine, and give each one a name."
 And so He traveled land and sea, 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."

 The Father smiled and softly said, "I've left you 'til the end,
I've turned my name from back to front, and called you DOG, my friend."
