Death Row Dogs!

They say that animals can smell death. Can you imagine how much fear a dog on death row must experience? They know that they were abandoned, and they know that they will die. We need to stop buying animals! There are too many in shelters across the world that need to be adopted. Open up your heart, and home, to a shelter pet. It will be the greatest experience of your life. Love is not for sale, but it is always available for adoption!

Down The Hall 

I hear the footsteps down the hall
Do you think they’re for me?
My seven days are up at noon
Do you think I’ll go free?

My owner turned me in last week
Said my costs were too high,
He walked away without a kiss
And left me here to die!

I heard from other death row pets
That no one wants our love,
So I should just accept the fact
That soon, I’ll go above!

They said there are no homes for us
Too many folks don’t care,
I wish they’d take a chance on me
I have so much to share!

Oh no, I hear some cries right now
They say the rumor’s true,
There are no loving homes for us
No rescues will come through!

Since no one wants to take me home
It’s now my time to die,
Dear Lord, please make me brave and strong
And help me not to cry!

I hear the footsteps down the hall
In my cage goes the key,
So scared, I do not want leave
Please say a prayer for me!

Trade-Ins Not Allowed!

One of the saddest things that happens in rescue is when a family decides to “surrender” their senior dog or cat, so that they can make room for a new puppy or kitten!  I actually have few words to describe how angry this makes me! Pets are family and family is forever! If you feel differently about this, please, do not adopt!

Too Old To Die

I used to be a puppy dog
So young and full of zest,
But now I’m old, my body aches
Each day I need more rest!

I still want hugs and belly rubs
And special times with you,
Please don’t discard me cause I’m old
Don’t tell me we are through!

Just yesterday my beagle friend
Was taken to the vet,
They put him down cause he was old
A puppy they’ll now get!

One day last month the yellow lab
Who lived right up the street,
Was taken to the pound to die
With new lab at dad’s feet!

I might be old and out of play
But my heart is like new,
It’s where I keep our memories
And all my love for you!

Do you not love me anymore
Because I’m old and gray?
Please let me stay until my end
Do not throw me away!

You’re not as young as you once were
And when you laugh you pee,
But I love you no matter what
Can’t you do that for me?

I know I’m old and near the end
Soon my time will be up,
But please don’t throw my life away
To make room for a pup!

Animals Are Not Disposable!

No animal should ever feel as if they are disposable. Unfortunately, too many do, and we need to help them. Please, if you can, donate to your local Humane Society or rescue group. Dogs and cats are not disposable! They deserve so much more from us. After all, they are gifts from God!

Disposable Me

Tomorrow I might never see
Because I am a stray,
I heard them talk, no room for me
This is my final day!

I used to have a home with love
But then a change took place,
The family that I loved so much
Grew large and needed space!

They said I was too much for them
I’m not sure what they meant,
I know I’m not disposable
For I was Heaven sent!

They put a heavy chain on me
And took me to the car,
I’m not sure where they dropped me off
From our house, it was far!

At first I thought this was a game
They wanted me to chase,
But as they sped away so fast
I could not keep their pace!

Soon I grew tired and sat down
I leaned upon a tree,
It’s then I realized  what was up
They did dispose of me!

Some stranger found me in the woods
And took me to the pound,
I heard him say I was half dead
A heartbeat, barely found!

They said three days is all I get
And then my time is up,
If no one takes me home with them
I’ll die while still a pup!

A rescue group is trying hard
To raise some funds for me,
I hope they get all that they need
Because it’s now day three!

If people gave a little bit
They’d save my life for sure,
But if they can’t, I’ll understand
And go to Heaven’s door!

I hope someone remembers me
My short time on this earth,
But chances are, no one will care
It seems I have no worth!

Forever And A Day!

If you take me into your life
I promise not to stray,
I’ll give you things you never had
Forever and a day!

Each morning you’ll see happiness
I’ll show it with my tail,
For when you wake, I’ll be right there
My love for you won’t fail!

As you get ready for your day
I will not leave your side,
Each step you take, I’ll be with you
I’ll keep up with your stride!

When it is time for you to leave
To go to work or play,
I’ll make sure that our home is safe
My barks keep bad away!

Each hour I will wait for you
To come back home to me,
And when you walk in our front door
My happy dance you’ll see!

Together we will eat some food
Then play and watch TV,
We’ll snuggle up, I’ll keep you warm
This is how it should be!

When you decide to go to sleep
I’ll lay down on my bed,
But chances are, when you wake up
I’ll be in yours instead!

If you take me into your life
Then this is what I’ll pray,
God bless this person who saved me
Forever and a day!

Too Sad To Live!

Everyday, we hear stories about dogs being neglected and abused. My question is, if someone does not want a dog to be a loved and loving member of their family, then why do they want to have one? I do not know the answer. Do you?

dog-1378174_640

Do You?

I’m thirsty now, can you help me
My dish is still bone dry?
Do you not want to help me out
You’d rather hear me cry?

I’m hungry now, where is my food
I think I’m way too thin?
Do you not hear my tummy growl
And know the pain I’m in?

I’m hurting now, can you remove
This collar from my neck?
Do you not know how tight it is
Why don’t you ever check?

I’m cold right now, can I come in
Outside I will just freeze?
Do you not want to give me warmth
I really need it please?

I’m scared right now, why are you mad
Can you stop hitting me?
Do you not want me in your life
Why don’t you set me free?

I’m dying now, why do you cry
I’m still chained to a tree?
Do you think God will punish you
For all you did to me?

I’m happy now, I’m home at last
The Rainbow Bridge is real,
You cannot hurt me anymore
His love is all I feel!

I’m thankful now, I’m in God’s House
There’s love in every bowl,
And even though you took my life
I’ll still pray for your soul!

My Dogs Friends!

My dogs truly believe that anyone who comes over for a visit, is coming strictly to visit and play with them. It is their house, their friends, and most definitely, their life! I am so blessed that I am their person! I would not have it any other way!

This Dog’s Life

Welcome to my happy home
Please come in, take a seat,
Please let me sniff you all around
That’s how I choose to meet!

Just so you know, my couch has hair
Some black, some brown, some white,
But it’s okay, looks good on you
It makes your outfit right!

Please do not startle when I jump
To sit right next to you,
It’s just that you are in my spot
So here will have to do!

You need to move your arm for me
So I can place my head,
Upon your soft and comfy lap
My temporary bed!

Oh look, mom’s bringing snacks for us
She is so good and kind,
And if you drop a crumb or two
Just leave it, I don’t mind!

You look like you have had too much
I’ll help you cause I care,
Just break in half the piece you have
And then I’ll help you share!

Oh that was good, my tummy’s full
I need to take a nap,
So once again, please move your arm
I really need your lap!

I think I let a stinky out
Or maybe even two,
But I will jump and move away
So mom will think it’s you!

It’s time for me to step outside
I really have to pee,
But do not worry, I’ll be back
And you can scratch on me!

I’m so glad you stopped by today
Much fun was had by all,
And next time that you visit me
I let you throw my ball!

Keep Your Fur-Kids Safe

Fireworks will scare your four legged children so please, do all you can to keep them safe and sound!! Have a great fourth!!

A Puppy's Plea

A Puppy’s Plea!

I know that fireworks are cool
And that they’re fun to see,
I also know they scare me lots
And make me want to pee!

If you go out to celebrate
Please lock me in a room,
T.V. and fans will block the sound
Of that gigantic boom!

Just close the curtains, keep it dark
I’ll lay in bed and rest,
Cause if I’m scared I’ll do bad things
Please trust me, I know best!

I do not see the pretty stuff
That lights up in the sky,
I just hear sounds that worry me
And make me want to cry!

I think the earth is blowing up
From my friends, that’s the scoop,
So if you leave me by myself
Be warned, I may just poop!

So once again, please hear my need,
Don’t leave me out this night,
Please keep me in, away from harm
Protect me from the fright!
