A Rescued Dog
(Author unknown)
Once I was a lonely dog, just looking for a home.
I had no place to go, no one to call my own.
I wandered up and down the streets, in rain and heat and snow
I ate whatever I could find, I was always on the go.
My skin would itch, my feet were sore, my body ached with pain.
And no one stopped to give a pat, or to gently call my name.
I never saw a loving glance, I was always on the run.
For people thought that hurting me was really lots of fun.

Then one day I heard a voice so gentle, kind and sweet,
And arms so soft reached down to me and took me off my feet.
"No one again will hurt you", was whispered in my ear.
"You'll have a home to call you own where you will know no fear".
"You will be dry, you will be warm, and have enough to eat".
"And, rest assured that when you sleep, your dreams will all be sweet"

I was afraid, I must admit, I've lived so long in fear.
I can't remember when I let a human come so near.
As she tended to my wounds, and bathed and brushed my fur,
She told me about the rescue group and, what it meant to her.
She said, "We are a circle, a line that never ends"
"And, in the center, there is you, protected by new friends".
"All around you are the ones who check the streets and pounds,
and those who will share their home, once you have been found."
"While you heal, there are other folk who are searching near and far,
to find a perfect home for you where you can be a star!!"
She said, "There is a family, made for you, who are waiting patiently",
And pretty soon, we'll find them, just you wait and see!!!"
"Then, they'll join the circle, they'll help to make it grow,
so there will be room for more like you, who have no place to go".

I waited very patiently, the days, they came and went,
Today's the day, I thought. My family will be sent.
Then, just when I began to think it wasn't meant to be,
There were people standing there just gazing down at me.
I knew them in a heartbeat. I could tell they felt it too!!.
They said, "We have been waiting for a special dog like you!!"
Now, every night I say a prayer to all the Gods that be,
"Thank you for the life I live and all you've given me!!"
God, please protect all the dogs in shelters and on the street.
And, send a rescue person to lift them off their feet!!
