A Dog for Jesus

Doggie Heaven

A Dog for Jesus
(Where dogs go when they die)

I wish someone had given Jesus a dog.
As loyal and loving as mine.
To sleep by His manger and gaze in His eyes
And adore Him for being divine.

As our Lord grew to manhood His faithful dog,
Would have followed Him all through the day.
While He preached to the crowds and made the sick well
And knelt in the garden to pray.
It is sad to remember that Christ went away.
To face death alone and apart.

With no tender dog following close behind,
To comfort its Master’s Heart.
And when Jesus rose on that Easter morn,
How happy He would have been,
As His dog kissed His hand and barked it’s delight,
For The One who died for all men.

Well, the Lord has a dog now, I just sent Him mine,
The old pal so dear to me.
And I smile through my tears on this first day alone,
Knowing they’re in eternity.
Day after day, the whole day through,
Wherever my road inclined,
Four feet said, “Wait, I’m coming with you!”
And trotted along behind.

  1. I just lost my Frankie last night the 1st of November at 7 p.m. 2007.I want to will my heart to stop. I know all the animals are in heaven. And I know clear to my soul that the dogs and cats and birds that I’ve had are waiting for me if I’m good enough to join them. I’m just not so sure I can go through this one more heartbreak. Frankie my Jack Russell was 17 years old the 2nd of September of this year he’s been with me 16 of the years. I don’t think I can go on without him.
