Dogs are often referred to as “man’s best friend.” The dog in this picture is Goliath, and he may be fittingly placed in the online bible story for BibleRhymes, “David and Goliath.” You can read a poem I wrote in honor of him as he passed to the next world. The poem is called Best Friends. Goliath was a best friend. He was the sidekick, buddy, and pal of a friend that I’ve known since we were kids.
Man’s Best Friend
… sometimes doesn’t get the respect it deserves.
And the Philistine said unto David, “Am I a dog, that you come to me with sticks?” And the Philistine cursed David by his gods. (1 Samuel 17: 43)
