Love your puppy!


Do I Go Home Today?

My family brought me home today cradled in their arms.
They cuddled me and smiled at me, and said I was full of charm.

They played with me and laughed with me, they showered me with toys.
I sure do love my family, especially the little boys.

The Children loved to feed me, they gave me special treats,
They even let me sleep with them and snuggle in the sheets.

I used to go for walks, often several times a day.
They even fought to hold the leash, I'm very proud to say.

These are things I'll never forget -a cherished memory.
I now live in a shelter -without my family.

They used to laugh and praise me when I played with that old shoe.
But I didn't know the difference between the old ones and the new.

The kids and I would grab a rag, for hours we would tug.
So I thought I did the right thing when I chewed the bathroom rug.

They said that I was out of control and would have to live outside.
This I did not understand although I tried and tried.

The walks stopped one by one. They said they hadn't time.
I wish that I could change things, I wish I knew my crime.

My life became so lonely, in the backyard, on a chain.
I barked and barked all day long, to keep from going insane.

So they brought me to a shelter but were embarrassed to say why.
They said I caused an allergy, and then kissed me goodbye.

If I'd only had some classes, as a little pup.
I wouldn't have been so hard to handle when I was all grown up.

"You only have one day left", I heard the worker say.
Does this mean a second chance? Do I go home today?

~1991 Sandi Thompson

I have had this little poem tucked away for years
and I felt it too moving and insightful not to share with everyone.
