When many of us lay our heads down at night and say our prayers, we thank God for all the blessings in our lives.
And among those blessings are our furry friends.
They are there to make us laugh, they are there for us when we cry and provide us with the kind of judgement-free unconditional love that only a dog can offer.
God definitely something special in mind when he created dogs. And nothing can explain this better than the hilarious poem called “God Made a Dog.”
Here’s how it goes:
“And on the 9th-day, God looked down on his wide-eyed children and said, ‘They need a companion.’
So, God made a dog.
God said, ‘I need somebody willing to wake up give kisses, pee on a tree, sleep all day, wake up again, give more kisses, then stay up until midnight, basking in the glare of a tevelsion set.’
So, God made a dog
God said, ‘I need somebody willing to sit, then stay, then roll over. Then with no ego or complaint dress in hats they don’t need and costumes they dont understand.
I need someonboy who can break wind without a first care, without a second thought, who can chase tails, sniff crotches, fetch sticks, and lift spirits with a lick.
Somebody who no matter what you didn’t do, or couldn’t take, or didn’t win, or couldn’t make, will love you without judgment just the same.’
So, God made a dog.
God said, ‘I need somebody strong enough to pull sleds and find bombs, yet gentle enough to love babies and lead the blind. Somebody who will spend a day on a couch with a resting head and supportive eyes to lift the spirts of a broken heart.’
So, God mad a dog.
It had to be somebody who remained patient and loyal, even through loneliness. Somebody to care, cuddle, snuggle, and nuzzle, and cheer, and charm, and snore and slobber, and eat the trash and chase the squirrles.
Somebody who would bring a family together with the selflessness of an open heart. Somebody who would bark, and then pant, and they reply with the rapid wag of a tail when their best friend says, ‘Let’s go for a ride in the car.’
So, God made a dog.”
Dogs are a true blessing and our explanation doesn’t do this poem justice, so you’ll definitely want to watch the video below.
