It's the age old question- Why did God make dogs? Well, if you have a dog you know that once that dog entered into your life, he or she became your best friend. As with all friendships, there are many ups and downs. Your dog can be there for you when nobody seems to be there. They can make you mad because they get in the garbage and make a mess in the kitchen when you walk out of the room for one minute (that may or may not have happened to me this morning).
This video takes a humorous spin and yet in seconds, has an emotional twist on why God made dogs. God said, "I need somebody willing to sit, then stay, then roll over, then with no ego or complaint dress in hats. I need somebody who will break the wind without a first care or a second thought. Who can chase tails, sniff crotches, fetches sticks and lifts spirits with a lick."
"Somebody that no matter what you didn't do or couldn't take, or didn't win or couldn't make, will love you with out judgment just the same. So God made a dog. Somebody who will spend all day on a couch with a resting head and supportive eyes, to lift the spirits of a broken heart." So God made a dog.
What this video left out was a part of the poem that is equally as powerful as the rest and here it is. God said, "I need somebody who would stand at your side when the world around you collapses. Somebody to lie next to you during the long nights of pain and sorrow when it hurts to move, or talk, or think, or be. Somebody to stand guard, play games, snore for hours and repeat as needed. Somebody to give you strength when you have none of your own."
"Somebody to fight when you have no fight left, to hold onto your soul as if it were their favorite toy, playing tug of war to keep you in this world. Somebody to be your companion and guide in this world and the next. Somebody to wait for you on the other side or stand guard in your absence until they can join you for eternity." So God made a dog.
In conclusion, dogs are the best and we are so thankful that God made them. I mean, who else is going to fetch the sticks we throw? Watch the video below but be prepared. If you have a dog or had a dog, you will probably laugh and cry.
