A Dog for Jesus

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. Layed n my lap not played. Over 2 days hav passed anni see him everywhere I want him back Jesus or come get me too I am ready to go Lord

  2. I just lost my little Titus 2 days ago , he was having a little kidney issue that fluids under skin were controlling really well . He hated to be stuck with that needle but I guess he couldn’t tell me to stop or not. Then at round 5 pm I told him mommies home he just barely glancedusuall so happy went right into his room wasn’t long he was panting so hard went emergency room they gave pain meds an said if he isn’t okay tomorrow comeback or local vet. It wasn’t 2hours with the strong meds he was breathing uncontrollably an he he started crying out loud we went back to emergency gave him more meds and did all kinds of test found nothing so it was a spinal thing or nerve damage. From doing nothin but he was 17. We could have brought him home with heavier meds but the DR said he might or might not get better I couldntbare to see him hurting for 5days like that an plus she didn’t know if it would get better I couldn’t barevto see my baby boy hurting so bad. Not knowing if he was gonna get better so I made the decision Lord God did I do right wish I’d have him more water when he was panting I wasn’t thinking right the process started he played n my lap for about an hr I talked to him about everything how much I loved him the most time came for the final. Dr gave it to him I moved his little body a little so I could kiss his little head and talk to him more I gently pushd his little eyes an mouth closed he peepee on me I told him it was ok he was really biting me hard earlier I told him it’s ok I toldhim I’d see him again. Time came they came for his lil body picked him up I rubbed him one last time an kissed his lil head an told him good bye. Now I wish God would take me too an we could be with each other an love on each other again. I don’t know what to do , I’m hurting an I miss him so bad he is my little angel. I know how you feel me and Teensy were together practically every minute apart from work my life is so very empty now I wish we were together Lord God take care of T an hold him till I get there wish it was now

  3. Abby was one of our many Miniature Schnauzers. We had to say Good-Bye on January 20 2024. She was so sick & in pain. We know that is all gone,now & she is with Jesus & all of our other babies,Cricket,Shadow,Gus,Toby,Casey,Beau & Baron. We still have Charly. This poem & the Rainbow Bridge are so beautiful & couldn’t say it any better.

  4. I am in love with Beatrice ..My dog ..It’s a street dog and I fell in love with it.Bia is going to die because of skin disease .It needs one month treatment for it to stay alive.Please pray for her .She needs around 15,000 for it to stay alive and a person to take care of it.

  5. You can go on without him. Jesus is the true sustainer, if you accept Him. You’ll never be good enough to get to heaven, but if you ask Jesus into you life, he will save you and you can go on. I hope He will take some of your pain away, but perhaps you need it to realize how precious but short life is.

  6. My sister Ann added Jesus poem in memorial of the loss of my 13 year old Lab Kam in June 13 2016. Like some one else said, I just wanted my dog back. But I have also learned to love Jesus more. Some things I don’t understand and maybe not meant to.

  7. I too like others pray this is true. I know the grief others describe for I am feeling it now too. Lost my 18 1/2 year old cat Martha on Sept. 13, 2018 and my 15 year old Xolo Boy Timmy soon after on Oct. 1, 2018. I pray I have loved ones have him in their care…and that one day my Xolo Boy will bounce with glee as he always did when he sees me once again coming home.

  8. Such a beautiful thought. I pray it is true. It comforts my broken heart thinking my magnificent boys, Sullivan & Gunther are with my Lord! They were my dearest companions and my very best friends. Constantly loving me & protecting me. Every second of every day I miss them with all of my heart. I will love them for eternity! You have the best dogs Lord!

  9. 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.
