A Dog’s Soul

Every dog must have a soul, somewhere deep inside

Where all his hurts and grievances are buried with his pride.

Where he decides the good and bad, the wrong way from the right,

And where his judgment carefully is hidden from our sight.

A dog must have a secret place, where every thought abides,

A sort of close acquaintance that he trusts in and confides.

And when accused unjustly for himself.   He cannot speak,

Rebuked.  He finds within his soul, the comfort he must seek.

He’ll love, tho’ he is unloved, and he’ll serve tho’ badly used,

And one kind word will wipe away the times he’s been abused.

Altho’ his heart may break in two, his love will still be whole,

Because God gave to every dog an understanding Soul!

  1. Love it. Thanks for sharing Kathleen.

  2. They are some of the most loving and generous souls I’ve ever met. My world would be all the poorer without them. 🙂
