    Do I Go Home Today?


    Posted on July 21, 2012 by Baggy Bulldogs


    My family brought me home 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 and showered me with toys.
    I sure do love my family, especially the girls and boys.
    The children loved to feed me, they gave me special treats.
    They even let me sleep with them – all snuggled 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 the things I’ll not forget – a cherished memory.
    I now live in the 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 chew the bedroom 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 the shelter but were embarassed to say why,
    They said I caused an allergy, and then they each 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 that mean I have a second chance?
    Do I go Home today?
    LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.
