God and Dog

It’s amazing how much we can learn from our dogs about our relationship with God. (More on this in my “The Zoe Dogalectic” post.)

No wonder their names are so closely bound together! 

(I know, I know. Something only a true dog lover would say.)



I ran across this video as I was ruminating on my next primary post and thought many of my readers would think it as cute as I do. 

And yes, it’s also another shameless, self-promoting teaser for my post about a lesson I learned from wife’s new puppy. 🙂



GoD and DoG

by Wendy Francisco
I look up and I see God. 

I look down and see my dog.

Simple spelling G O D. 

Same word backwards D O G.
They would stay with me all day. 

I’m the one who walks away.

But both of them just wait for me, 

and dance at my return with glee.
Both love me no matter what, 

divine God and canine mutt.

I take it hard each time I fail, 

but God forgives, dog wags his tail.
God thought up and made the dog;

dog reflects a part of God.

I’ve seen love from both sides now. 

It’s everywhere. Amen. Bow-wow.
I look up and I see God. 

I look down and see my dog.

And in my human frailty, 

I can’t match their love for me.
