On Puppies

I brought the puppies out that day to romp in the April sun,

Six perfect little puppies, that is except for one.

His left hind leg was crippled, from birth it was that way,

I said I'd never sell him, nor ever give him away.

A car drew up beside the pups and it was then I saw,

A small boy's face light up with joy, with eagerness and awe.

The father knelt beside the pups, "now take your pick my son,"

The boy pointed out at once, my little crippled one.

I was about to shake my head but then watched the boy kneel,

To hold the silken puppy close and so we closed the deal.

I'd seen the brace upon his leg and smiled to watch them go,

They'd set their pace, each to each And both be better, so.......

A Puppy's Prayer

Dear God, please send me somebody who'll care!
I'm tired of running, I'm sick with despair
My body is aching, it's so racked with pain
And dear God, I pray as I run in the rain
that someone will love me and give me a home,
A warm cozy bed and a big juicy bone

My last owner tied me all day in the yard
Sometimes with no water and God, that was hard
So I chewed my leash God and I ran away
To rummage in garbage and lie as a stray
But now God, I'm tired and hungry and cold
And I'm so afraid that I'll never grow old.

They've chased me with sticks, hit me with stones
While I run the streets just looking for bones!
I'm not really bad God, please help if you can
For I have become just a "victim of man!"

I'm wormy dear God and I'm ridden with fleas
And all that I want is an owner to please!
If you find one for me God, I'll try to be good
I won't chew their shoes, and I'll do as I should
I'll love them, protect them and try to obey
When they tell me to sit, to lie down or to stay
I don't think I'll make it too long on my own
Cause I'm getting so weak and I'm, Oh so alone

Each night as I sleep in the bushes I cry
Cause I'm so afraid God, that I'm gonna die!
I've got so much love and devotion to give
That I should be given a new chance to live.

So dear God please, please answer my prayer
And send me somebody who will really care.

A Dog's Plea

Treat me kindly my beloved friend for no heart in all the world is more grateful for kindness than the loving heart of me.

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 thing 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 your footstep falls upon my waiting ear.

Please take me inside when it is cold and wet, for I am a domesticated animal, no longer accustomed to bitter elements.
I ask no greater glory than the privilege of sitting at your feet beside the hearth.

Keep my pan filled with fresh 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 at 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 I no longer enjoy good health, hearing and sight, do not make heroic efforts to keep me going.

Please see that my trusting life is taken gently.
I shall leave this earth knowing with the last breath I draw that my fate was always safest in your hands.
