Dog and Perek Shira

reprinting, since one part of Bil’am’s stream of praises memorialized in this week’s Parshas is that we are a nation of dogs.


Continuing on in Perek Shira…from every force of nature, from every created thing, we can learn how to connect with G-dliness.  Here is the dog’s lesson.

Wag goes the tail, wide goes the eye

Up goes the ear, when the dog’s owner goes by

Woof, Bark or Arf, there’s always a barked hello

And where the Master goes, dogs like to follow

Dogs grovel and bow and know their owner

But even more they recognize their Creator

Lick goes the tongue as the dog shows its love

Shouldn’t mankind show devotion to the Master up Above?
