I had a foster mom named Mary who cared for and loved me before my furefur mom found me. This is to you Mary.
There I sat, alone and afraid.
You got a call and came right to my aid.
You bundled me up with blankets and love.
And, when I needed it most, you gave me a hug.
I learned that the world was not all that scary and cold.
That sometimes there is someone to have and to hold.
You taught me what love is, you helped me to mend.
You loved me and healed me and became my first friend.
And just when I thought you'd done all you do,
There came along not one new lesson, but two.
First you said, "Sweetheart, you're ready to go.
I've done all I can, and you've learned all I know."
Then you bundled me up with a blanket and kiss.
Along came a new family, they even have kids!
They took me to their home, forever to stay.
At first I thought you sent me away.
Then that second lesson became perfectly clear.
No matter how far, you will always be near.
And so, Foster Mom, you know I've moved on.
I have a new home, with toys and a lawn.
But I'll never forget what I learned that first day.
You never really give your fosters away.
You gave me these thoughts to remember you by.
We may never meet again, and now I know why.
You'll remember I lived with you for a time.
I may not be yours, but you'll always be mine.

I am so thankful for my loving furefur home.
I know I don't look like much.
My ears aren't the longest -
But I can hear everything you say.
My coat isn't very shiny, either -
But I love to be brushed.
I am not a perfect dog, I guess.
Sometimes I make mistakes in the house,
Mostly when I get scared.
And I get really frightened when my foster mom goes away.
I know what it's like to be abandoned forever.
What if she never, never comes back?
I get awfully possessive about my food sometimes.
I know what it's like not to have any.
And big people with loud hard voices scare me
When they try to clip my nails.
I've been hurt bad.
And sometimes kids run and scream,
One of them hit me once. And one kicked me.
I feel better than I used to,
But I still get kind of sick sometimes.
I don't know what's wrong,
But sometimes I just like to lie down in the sun and sleep.
I like my foster mother very well.
She's a really nice person.
And I have been here a long time now.
She likes me too.
But I wish I had someone to really, really love me.
Some very nice people came to look at me one time.
They petted me and took me for a walk!
I was so sure.
But they went away.
They said I was too old.
I wonder what that means.
Does that mean I won't ever get my own home?

This is the story of what she did this morning.....
This morning Mama Sam was on her way to work and she got caught behind a train and had to sit and wait for it to pass..... it happens now and then when she take this route.
So she is sitting there waiting and she noticed movement out of the corner of her eye and she takes a good look and it is a little red doxie..... very near the road and the railroad track..... she looks again and there is also a little black doxie up just a bit further and more toward the house that sits there.
She thought....oh my goodness.... these babies are going to get run over if they stay out here, so she turned on the turn signal and pulled slowly into their driveway..... and as Mama Sam got out of the car the little black girl ran to her and licked her hand.... the little red boy came running in defense of his home and just woofed his little head off. So cute.
She (Mama Sam) walked up to the door and by then she and the pups were all furiends..... rang the doorbell..... and after a minute or two a lady came to the door looking as if you say.... who are you and what do you want. She didn't say that of course, because Mama Sam immediately spoke and told her that her babies were almost in the road so she wanted to let her know. The lady opened the door and the pups ran inside immediately and the little girl turned toward Mama Sam as if to invite her to follow.
The lady thanked Mama Sam and she turned and walked back to her car knowing in her heart that she had probably saved the life of one or both of these pups today. It made her feel good inside.... and she just looked up and thanked Dutchess for showing them to sher so she could get them to safety. She had a tear as she drove away, knowing that it was Dutchess that placed her there at that very moment. Thank you my Angel Wife.
