View Full Version : A Pound Dog's Lament

I'm not real pretty, and not real small
My coat is rough, my ears stand tall
My tail is long, with a kink at the end
My eyes are still looking for a friend
I hear some steps, they're coming real close
I'll give them my best prize winning pose
Then I hear the words, they have to say
"He isn't very pretty, but, oh how he begs
Bouncing around on his springy legs
Look at the love in his eyes that shine
He's the one I want to call all mine"
So away I go, my heart beating fast
To a home with a friend, and love at last!

Inspired by "Patch", Nr.259 at the Good Shepherd Animal Shelter [I called him
"Shiner" (since adopted)]

How wonderful. I'm so glad Patch found the home he was waiting for. He is really a great dog and will be a loyal companion.

Now that's a feel good story! I'm happy for Patch and his new owner!
