God made a little dachsie

to brighten up our day

He took a bit of sunshine

Laughter, Love, & play

and rolled it up in a sausage shape

just right for a hug,

with bright eyes full of mischief

set in a little mug.

With little paws a pattering,

to take it here and there

and a cold wet nose-but then 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.


Pat the doggy and return to PAL´s...
