For Sue...

"O God, my master,
Should I gain the grace to see you face to face,
When life is ended,
Grant that a little dog, who once pretended
That I was God,
May see me face to face."

Francis Jammes (1868-1938)

I really love this (!)and although I don't know who Sue is I really feel for her if this is her dog.

Also there is another one of Francis Jamme's poems about a donkey which I love.( A Prayer to Go to Paradise with the Donkeys).

Losing a dog is SO hard!

Seeing this beautiful post reminded me of a You-tube video I saw about God and dog. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H17edn_RZoY
