A friend of mine posted this and I thought it was worth sharing, I hope you think so too. The picture is our newly adopted Berner rescue, Patience. She’s five-years-old and was rescued from the puppy mill two months ago.

I Adopted Your Dog Today

I adopted your dog today

The one you left at the pound

The one you had for seven years

and no longer wanted around.

I adopted your dog today

Do you know he’s lost weight?

Do you know he’s scared and depressed

and has lost all faith?

I adopted your dog today

He had fleas and a cold

But don’t worry none

You’ve unburdened your load.

I adopted your dog today

Were you having a baby or moving away?

Did you suddenly develop allergies?

Or another reason he couldn’t stay?

I adopted your dog today

He doesn’t play or eat much

He’s very depressed

But he will learn again to trust

I adopted your dog today

And here he will stay

He’s found his forever home

And a warm bed on which to lay.

I adopted your dog today

And I will give him all that he could need –

Patience, love, security and understanding.

Hopefully he will forget your selfish deed.
