I Worship At The Altar of Dog
By Jennifer Gale
From Babyeiya@aol.com   


After the Death of My Darling Sara, my sister Jennifer Gale wrote this.  Sara and her son were rescued from a buncher twelve years ago, just before being sent off to a lab.  Through the efforts of PETA he was shut down.  I thought I would share this poem with all my dog loving friends.

I WORSHIP AT THE ALTAR OF DOG,
For if God is love, then surely Dog must be the embodiment of God on earth.

Even through suffering, through cruelty, through starvation
Dog loves, Dog forgives, Dog gives.

Even at the hands of the Chinese madmen, the soulless, empty men who skin Dog alive to sell their fur
For coats, for collars and cuffs, for furry toys.
For Englishmen and Americans and Frenchmen and Germans and Japanese…
people who profess to love Dog.

Even then, Dog comes to the murderer's hand, tail wagging, with sorrow in its heart, in its eye.
With sadness for the soul of the soulless one about to commit the act,
And like Jesus in Golgotha, says,
I forgive you for what you are about to do.

I WORSHIP AT THE ALTAR OF DOG,
For of all God's creations Dog is selfless and boundless in its love.
Dog is the embodiment of Dharma
of Mitzvah
of Lovingkindness.
