Dachshund Poem

God made a little dachsie
to brighten up our day,
He took a bit of sunshine,
Laughter, love, and play.
And rolled it up in a sausage shape
just right for a hug, with bright eyes full of mischief
set in it's little mug.
With little paws a pattering,
to take it here and there -
and a cold wet nose - but He thought,
"Oh, what about the hair?
Shall I make it long and silky,
or wiry, that's so sweet, or make it simple, and have it smooth
and satiny and neat?
And what about the color -
how can I pick just one?
Shall it be black, or red or brown
or dappled, just for fun?"
He pondered while He made the world,
And all creatures great and small -
And then the answer came to Him -
"OF COURSE! I'll make them ALL!!"
So remember that a dachshund
is special, from above His coat of many colors
is a sign of God's great Love.
