Poem for Puppy Parents

Don’t smell crotches, don’t eat plants.
Don’t steal food or underpants.
Don’t eat my socks, don’t grab my hair…
Don’t rip the stuffing from that chair!
Don’t eat those peas, don’t touch that bush,
Don’t chew my shoes, what is this mush?!?

Eat your cookies, drink your drink,
Outta the toilet! Outta the sink!
Away from the litterbox, thats for the cat!
and must you kiss me after that?!?

Raising a puppy is not for the lazy,
Those rugrats are funny but also quite crazy.
Don’t despair through the toil and the strife,
Cause after three years you’ll get back your life!
So let’s go for walkies, so you can do your “thing”,
And maybe I’ll get back my good diamond ring!

Poem A Dogs Soul

Every dog must have a soul
Somewhere deep inside
Where all his hurts and grievances
Are buried with his pride.
Where he decides the good and bad,
The wrong way from the right,
And where his judgement carefully
Is hidden from our sight.
A dog must have a secret place
Where every thought abides,
A sort of close acquaintance that
He trusts in and confides.
And when accused unjustly for
Himself, He cannot speak,
Rebuked, He finds within his soul
The comfort he must seek.
He’ll love, tho’he is unloved,
And he’ll serve tho’badly used,
And one kind word will wipe away
The times when he’s abused.
Altho’ his heart may break in two
His love will still be whole,
Because God gave to every dog
An understanding Soul!

Poem I Adopted your Dog today

I adopted your dog today
The one you left at the pound
The one you had for ten years
and no longer wanted around

I adopted your dog today
Did you know he lost weight?
Did you know he is scared and depressed?
And seems to have lost all faith

I adopted your dog today
He had fleas and a little cold
Guess you don’t care what shape he’s in
You abadoned him I’m told

I adopted your dog today
Were you having a baby or moving away?
Did you suddenly develop allergies?
Or was there no reason he couldn’t stay?

I adopted your dog today
He doesn’t play or eat much
I quess he’s very sad inside and
it’ll take time for him to trust

I adopted your dog today
and here he is going to stay
He found his forever home
and a warm bed in wich to lay

I adopted your dog today
and shall give him all he will need
Patience, love and security
so he can forget your selfish deed.

If you want to feel like you’ve made a real difference as a dog owner, adopt a dog from a shelter or rescue group. There are few other ways to make such a huge difference in another creature’s life.

The Humane Society estimates that only in the US six to eight million dogs and cats are surrendered to shelters each year. Of those animals, about half are adopted, and half are euthanized. There are simply more dogs than there are good homes for them
(one reason why spaying and neutering is so important).

There are shelters and rescue groups everywhere. So when thinking of getting a puppy check those organisations first. Rescue groups are organizations that take dogs out of shelters and keep them in foster homes, and sometimes private kennels, until homes can be found. Some are breed-specific, while others take all types of dogs. Overall, they tend to give the dogs more medical and behavioral care than many shelters. Just google for a shelter or rescue group in your area and visit.

Make this world a better place and save a life by adopting!

Look into my Eyes

I lie belly-up
In the sunshine, happier than
You ever will be.

Today I sniffed
Many dog butts, celebrate
By kissing your face.

I sound the alarm!
Paperboy, Come to kill us all
Look! Look! Look! Look! Look!

I sound the alarm!
Garbage man Come to kill us all
Look! Look! Look! Look! Look!

I lift my leg and
Whiz on each bush. Hello, Spot
Sniff this and weep.

Sleeping here, my chin
On your foot. No greater bliss well,
Maybe catching cats.

Look into my eyes and
Deny it. No human could
Love you as much I do.

A True Friendship

A crumb from the donut,
a piece of toast,
thats all it takes,
no need to boast

A scratch on the ear,
a pat on the head
a “quiet good doggy”
no more said

A walk in the park,
a ride in the car,
No need to go fast,
no need to go far.

Always there,
happy and content.
A tried and true friendship
no need to invent.

Poem Unconditional Love

Great stories of love people love to recall
But unconditional love is the greatest love of all
The sort of love that a human to another human cannot give
Though your dog will love you for as long as she or he live,
A fact of life many do like to deny
That unconditional love to humans rarely does apply
But your dog will love you till the day he or she does die
And that is a fact and facts never lie
Eight years ago the last dog I had old Jedder passed away
With fondness and sadness I recall her today
To me so devoted she was a true friend
Her love for me unconditional till her very end
The unconditional love of a dog for her or his human master is an amazing thing
Though of the praises of such a love few ever do sing.
