When a friend is in trouble

When a friend is in trouble, don’t annoy him by asking if there is anything you can do. Think up something appropriate and do it.
– Edgar Watson Howe

Your friends will know better

Your friends will know you better in the first minute you meet than your acquaintances will know you in a thousand years.
– Richard Bach, (Illusions)

A treasured friend

I lost a treasured friend today
The little dog who used to lay
Her gentle head upon my knee
And share her silent thoughts with me.

She’ll come no longer to my call,
Retrieve no more her favorite ball
A voice far greater than my own
Has called her to His golden throne.

And though my eyes are filled with tears,
I thank Him for the happy years
He let her spend down here with me,
And for her love and loyalty.

A Tribute to your pet dog

When God had made the earth and sky
the flowers and the trees,
He then made all the animals
the fish, the birds and bees.

And when at last He’d finished
not one was quite the same.
He said, “I’ll walk this world of mine
and give each one a name.”

And so He traveled far and wide
and everywhere He went,
a little creature followed Him
until it’s strength was spent.

When all were named upon the earth
and in the sky and sea,
the little creature said,
“Dear Lord,there’s not one left for me.”

Kindly the Father said to him
“I’ve left you to the end
I’ve turned my own name back to front
and called you dog, My friend.”
