A Rescue Dog's Christmas Poem

pawrul1a.gif (939 bytes)

'Tis the night before Christmas and all through town
Every shelter is full - we are lost but not found
Our numbers are hung on our kennels so bare
We hope every minute that someone will care
They'll come to adopt us and give us the call
"Come here Max and Sparky - come fetch your new ball!"
But now we sit here and think of the days
We were treated so fondly - we had cute baby ways
Once we were little then we grew and we grew
Now we're no longer young and we're no longer new
So out the back door we were thrown like the trash
They reacted so quickly - Why were they so rash?
"We jump on the children"">

'Tis the night before Christmas and all through town
Every shelter is full - we are lost but not found
Our numbers are hung on our kennels so bare
We hope every minute that someone will care
They'll come to adopt us and give us the call
"Come here Max and Sparky - come fetch your new ball!"
But now we sit here and think of the days
We were treated so fondly - we had cute baby ways
Once we were little then we grew and we grew
Now we're no longer young and we're no longer new
So out the back door we were thrown like the trash
They reacted so quickly - Why were they so rash?
"We jump on the children", "don't come when they call",
"We bark when they leave us", "climb over the wall"
We should have been neutered, we should have been spayed
Now we suffer the consequences of the errors they made
If only they'd trained us, if only we knew
We'd have done what they asked us and worshiped them too
We were left in the backyard or worse - let to roam
Now we're tired and lonely and out of a home
They dropped us off here and they kissed us good-bye
"Maybe someone else will give you a try"
So now here we are all confused and alone
in a shelter with others who long for a home
The kind workers come through with a meal and a pat
With so many to care for they can't stay to chat
They move to the next kennel giving each of us cheer
We know that they wonder how long we'll be here
We lay down to sleep and sweet dreams fill our heads
Of a home filled with love and our own cozy beds
Then we wake to see sad eyes brimming with tears
Our friends filled with emptiness, worry, and fear
If you can't adopt us and there's no room at the inn
Could you help out with bills and fill our food bin?
We count on your kindness each day of the year
Can you give more than hope to everyone here?
Please make a donation to pay for the heat
and help get us something special to eat
The shelter that cares for us wants us to live
And more of us will, if more people will give .
