A DOG'S HOPE
Treat me kindly, my beloved friend, for no heart in all the world
is more grateful for kindness than the loving heart of mine.
Do not break my spirit with a stick, for though I should lick your hand between blows,
your patience and understanding will more
quickly teach me the things you would have me learn.
Speak to me often, for your voice is the world's sweetest music,
as you must know, by the fierce wagging of my tail when the sound
of your foot steps fall upon my waiting ear.
Please take me inside when it is cold and wet,
for I ask no greater glory than the privilege of sitting at your feet.
Keep my pan filled with water, for I cannot tell you when I suffer thirst.
Feed me clean food that I may stay well,
to romp and play and do your bidding to walk by your side
and stand ready, willing, and able to
protect you with my life, should your life be in danger.
And, my friend, when I am very old and no longer enjoy good health, hearing,
and sight, do not make heroic efforts to keep me going.
I shall leave this earth knowing with the last breath that I draw
that my fate was always safest in your hands...
I will always be your BEST FRIEND.
A Dog Sits Waiting
By Kathy Flood
A dog sits waiting in the cold autumn sun,
Too faithful to leave, too frightened to run.
He's been here for days now with nothing to do
But sit by the road, waiting for you.
He can't understand why you left him that day
He thought you and he were stopping to play.
He's sure you'll come back, and that's why he stays
How long will he suffer: How many more days?
His legs have grown weak, his throat's parched and dry
He's sick now from hunger and falls with a sigh.
He lays down his head and closes his eyes
I wish you could see how a waiting dog dies.
Please Do NOT abandon a Pet.
Give them at least the chance of another home,
by taking them to a pet shelter.
HOW A MAN TREATS THOSE UNDER HIS CONTROL
IS THE REAL MEASURE OF A MAN.
A STRONG MAN WILL SHOW COMPASSION,
A WEAK MAN CAN ONLY PRETEND TO BE STRONG BY NOT SHOWING IT. MNO
"The average dog is a nicer person than the
Animals have feelings just like people, more than some people.
They cannot help themselves, so please do what you can to help them.
