In Praise of Dogs

by Dr. a. Celestine Raj Manohar , M.D.

Canine friend of man, today; 
Faithful unto him in ways; 
Guarding him, his house, all day; 
Barking, keeping thieves at bay! 

Sleeping with his ears on ground; 
Listening to the faintest sound; 
Well, he sees in dark and light; 
Howls and growls in dead of night. 

Tied for life, working o’er-time; 
Longs to bite a bone, sometime; 
Snarls at strangers when too near; 
Wags his tail with joy, sans fear. 

The police-dog, tracks criminals; 
Hounds help tracing animals; 
And sniff drugs with sense of smell; 
Detecting bombs, pretty well. 

Dogs can pull a sledge or cart; 
In circus, do tricks by heart; 
They can swim in waters deep; 
Sit by master’s grave and weep! 

They can retrieve long, lost things; 
Joy to children, Dog, he brings; 
Helps a lost man, find his home, 
Orphaned in the streets, some roam. 

Walking, running on command; 
Petting, love, he will demand; 
Lucky to find love and home; 
Faithful friend, he will become. 

Some are huge and some tiny; 
Some are well-groomed, neat, shiny; 
Some ferocious; some timid; 
Some are brave and some stupid. 

Dogs like humans, love their pups! 
Nursing them till they grow up; 
Like children, they love to play; 
Dogs need love and care all day.
