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.
