There has to be a particularly strong reason why we call them men’s best friends. Dogs provide the purest form of unconditional love and their loyalty is something unseen on Earth. Like those qualities doesn’t make them so special already, these unique creature wait for nothing in return.
That’s why, regardless how thankful each and every one of us are for having these furry companions in our live, it is not enough. God must have create them for a very special reason!
There are songs, tons of story, inspiring movies, all about dogs. And there this adorable poem whose author tried to explain why ‘God Made a Dog,’ and after you’ll read it, you’ll love your pup, even more. If that’s possible!
The lovely words were inspired by a 2013 Superbowl ad, which was inspired by a 1978 speech of Paul Harvey, called ‘So God Made a Farmer.’ Here’s the heartwarming poem:
“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 television 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 don’t understand.
I need somebody 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 made a dog.”
God bless the person that wrote these words down, because they have never been more true. Dogs truly are the perfect creatures on Earth, and every person in this world should be grateful they exist.
