Christmas is right around the corner and I know there are lot's of girl's and boy's who want a new puppy. To anyone reading this blog I hope you take some time to consider all of the pros and cons before running out and getting a dog. Having a dog is a huge responsibility. They can be cute, and lovable, but they also require a lot of work. Having a dog is a life long commitment. If you do decide to get a dog please make it part of your family. Do not leave your dog chained outside alone. Please treat your dog like you would want to be treated. If you decide getting a dog is right for you please consider adoption. There are so many dogs in shelters just waiting for someone to take them home.
I found this poem that I would like to share with all of you.......
"I wish someone would tell me what it is I did wrong,
Why I have to stay chained up and left so long.
They seemed so glad to have me when I came as a pup
There were so many things we'd do while I was growing up.
They couldn't wait to train me as companion and friend,
They told me they would never fear being left alone again.
The children said they'd feed me, said they'd brush me every day,
They'd play with me and walk me if I could only stay.
But now the family hasn't the time, they often say I shed,
They won't allow me in the house, not even to be fed.
The children never walk me, they always say, "Not now."
I wish that I could please them, won't someone tell me how?
All I have is love, you see, I wish they would explain,
Why they said they wanted me, then left me on a chain"......
MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE! BLESSINGS TO YOU AND YOUR FAMILY!
With our warmest regards,
