      How God Made Dachshunds

God made a little dachsie to brighten up our day

He took a bit of sunshine, laughter, love and play

and rolled it up in a sausage shape just right for a hug,

with bright eyes full of mischief set in its little mug.

With little paws a pattering to take it here and there and a cold wet nose-

but then he thought, "Oh, what about the hair?"

Shall I make it long and silky, or wiry, that's so sweet, or make it simple, and have it smooth and satiny and neat?

And what about the color?

How can I pick just one?

Shall it be black, or red or brown or dappled, just for fun?"

He pondered while He made the world, Ann all creatures great and small-

And then the answer came to Him-

"OF COURSE! I'll make them ALL!"

So remember that a dachshund is special from above-

His coat of many colors is a sign of God's great Love.
