I recently adopted this
little puppy mill rescue,
He spent 9 years confined to a little pen. He has stolen my heart!
It is shocking to see
the hundreds of dogs and cats out there looking
for their forever home. So please, if you can afford it and have
room in your heart......please adopt!
Please consider adopting
one of these animals, they need homes too!
Big black dogs. FIV+ cats. Senior pets. Special-needs animals.
Open your heart and give a homeless animal a
chance! Your rewards will be great!
One by One, they pass by my cage,
Too old, too worn, too broken, no way.
Way past his time, he can't run and play.
Then they shake their heads slowly and go on their way.
A little old man, arthritic and sore,
It seems I am not wanted anymore.
I once had a home, I once had a bed,
A place that was warm, and where I was fed.
Now my muzzle is grey, and my eyes
Who wants a dog so old and so frail?
My family decided I didn't belong,
I got in their way, my attitude was wrong.

You took me home, gave me food and a
And shared your own pillow with my poor tired head.
We snuggle and play, and you talk to me low,
You love me so dearly, you want me to know.
I may have lived most of my life with
But you outshine them with a love so much stronger.
And I promise to return all the love I can give,
To you, my dear person, as long as I live.
I may be with you for a week, or for
We will share many smiles, you will no doubt shed tears.
And when the time comes that God deems I must leave,
I know you will cry and your heart, it will grieve.
And when I arrive at the Bridge, all
My thoughts and my heart will still be with you.
|And I will brag to all who will hear,
Of the person who made my last days so dear.
