I borrowed this from a friend's facebook page. I think it's beautiful...Don't know who the author is.
I was not unaware of the ties that bound

The body no longer useful
To one so brave, so big, so bold
One loved by her
With a strength untold
Now no pain, not scared
She set me free

I was close to you at breakfast, I watched you pour the tea,
You were thinking of the many times, your hands reached down to me.

for all that must be put…

As the sun began to rise, to envelop us all,
kissing us with its light, peace slid around us to endower,
The feeling of being one, with nature and beast,
those running pieces of my heart on four paws began to surround me,
Their happy yips of joy, their yodels and cries,
From time to time, people tell me, “lighten up, it’s just a dog”, or, “that’s a lot of money for just a dog”. They don’t understand the distance traveled, the time spent, or the costs involved for “just a dog”. Some of my proudest moments have come about with “just a dog”.

A Dog For Jesus
I wish someone had given Jesus a dog
As loyal and loving as mine
To sleep by His manger and gaze in His eyes
And adore Him for being divine.
As our Lord grew to manhood His faithful dog
Would have followed Him all through the…
