Father God,

I praise You because You are the Creator of all living things and because Your love for the those that You have made far exceeds my feeble affections. So, thank you, Father, that you made and love Precious.

Thank you that she brought You glory by being fully what You made her to be.

Thank you that she was curious, loyal, playful, obedient, generous with her affection, protective, and gentle.

Thank you that she loved to run and jump, sniff and bark, and eat whatever passed under her nose.

Thank you that you gave her to me and my family and friends for more than seven years, and now we give her back to you in trust and for your glory.
