An Animal Rights Poem from All-Creatures.org

All of God's creatures have rights, a fact that most people don't seem to recognize. This includes both human and non-human animals, but not all of them can speak for themselves.

A Dog's Love
By M. Butterflies Katz

Whenever I need to love, my dog is faithfully there.
Dogs exemplify a great willingness to give and to share.

They inspire us to go for walks, to play and even run,
A dog's love is comforting and makes life much more fun.

They are willing love objects at any hour of the day.
It seems that my dog understands every word I say.

Within a dog’s warm welcome, true love is understood.
Their eyes reveal honesty and a heart that's pure and good.

Great genius made the wagging tail, the 'happy' indicator,
When I see a dog's tail wag, my own happiness grows greater!

A dog's Love offers a calming, therapeutic feeling,
Petting a dog's coat has a wonderful way of healing.

A dog's love truly feels as though it comes from a higher place
than the oftentimes self-serving love shown by the human race.

This interspecies relationship has helped my soul to grow.
My Love should be more Dog-like. I am only human, though.
