So sad that the world has come to this,
There is definitely something horribly amiss.
My owner abused and used me for personal gain,
And then he dumped me like a sack of grain.
I was left at a shelter and felt so forlorn,
I began to wonder why I had even been born.
Calls were made for help for my daughter and I,
But I really thought we were both going to die.
And then my Foster Dad came along,
He told me I had done nothing wrong.
He stroked me and held me very close,
And planted kisses all over my little nose.
As the days passed and love surrounded me,
I realized that what had happened was meant to be.
For the last years of my life were spent,
Being loved beyond measure and I was so content.
I will miss everyone, but my Dad especially,
Who was always there for me and loved me unconditionally.
