When God had made the earth and sky,
the flowers and the trees, he then made all the
animals and all the birds and bees.
And when his work was finished, not one was
quite the same. He said: "I'll walk this earth of
mine and give each one a name."
And so he travelled land and sea and
everywhere he went, a little creature followed
him until its strenght was spent.
When all where named upon the earth and in
the sky and sea, the little creature said: "Dear
Lord, there's not one name left for me."
The father smiled and softly said: "I've left you
till the end, I've turned my own name back to
front and called you "DOG" my friend!"
