Letters: Tail wags God’s message

Dear Editor,

Can you recognize a messenger from God?

It is so easy to do,

He has brown eyes, usually,

And a wagging tail, too.


The messenger can be a he or she,

And no matter what you do,

They are always there beside you,

As their love is always true.


It matters not whether you are rich or poor,

Famous or a flop,

Your dog is there to give you love,

No matter what you’ve got.


Some are as proud as peacocks,

Pets of the rich,

But they show the same love,

To their drunken owner in a ditch,


Dogs are the most loving creatures,

That God has yet devised,

With wagging tails and licking tongue,

It’s you they idolize.


Their lives are short but their souls survive,

They become a dog once more,

To give total love and adoration,

To the human they adore.


So to the lost and lonely,

The solution is in sight,

Obtain a dog, if possible,

And enjoy the Creators’ light.

Mike Harvey, Langley
