Every dog must have a soul somewhere deep inside,
Where all his hurts and grievances are buried with his pride.
Where he decides, the good and bad, the wrong way from the right,
And where his judgement, carefully, is hidden from our sight.
A dog must have a secret place, where every thought abides,
A sort of close aquaintance, where he trusts and confides.
And when accused unjustly, for himself he cannot speak,
Rebuked, he finds within his soul, the comfort he must seek.
He'll love, tho' he is unloved, and he'll serve tho' badly used,
And one kind word will wipe away, the times when he's abused.
Altho' his heart may break in two, his love will still be whole,
Because God gave to every dog, an understanding soul!
