Artist's Description

A loverly little poem by an unknown author. I have added it to a photoshopped pic of my Newman…so fitting…I lost Newman recently…

Newman was a staffy x red heeler.

God’s dog poem

When God had made the Earth
and the 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 this earth of
mine and give each one a name.’

And so he travelled land and
sea and everywhere he went,
One little creature followed him
Until its strength was spent.

When all was named upon the
earth and in the sky and sea,
This 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.’
