This is a poem which has the same name as many other poems, but this is the one answering the question how the name “Dog” came up to be. 🙂
It is a little clever one by an unknown author, which only gives sense in an English language, but whoever wrote it had to love dogs very much for sure.
When God had made the earth and sky
the flowers and the trees,
He then made all the animals
the fish, the birds and bees.
And when at last He’d finished
not one was quite the same.
He said, “I’ll walk this world of mine
and give each one a name.”
And so He traveled far and wide
and everywhere He went,
a little creature followed Him
until it’s strength was spent.
When all were named upon the earth
and in the sky and sea,
the little creature said, “Dear Lord,
there’s not one left for me.”
Kindly the Father said to him
“I’ve left you to the end.
I’ve turned my own name back to front
and called you DOG, My friend .”
