How Dogs Got Their Name
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 then His work was finished, and not one was quite the same
He said I’ll walk this earth of mine and give each one a name.
And so he traveled land and sea, and everywhere He went
a little creature following him, until its strength was spent.
When all were named upon the Earth, and in the sky and sea,
A 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.
