A Tiny Pup
Early one morning when I was a tiny
My momma wept out of control.
With teary eyes she cried
Today you are to be sold
Still whimpering she
You'll have a great life little boy
Very soon you
will forget about us,
And be someone's pride and joy.
said You're off to a forever home
cause that is what fur babies
That's mother natures plan for pups,
You'll be loved and cared
But I was only 6 weeks old,
Way to young to be on
I needed my Mama and litter mates
I trembled, cried and
Those new people were never home,
If they loved me
it didn't show
Alone in a cage I cried all day,
And the hours
crept by so slow.
Within a few days we took a trip,
dumped where homeless dogs stay,
As I searched there eyes
They just turned and walked away
been good even though afraid,
And wondered what had I done wrong,
baby Schnauzer needs lots of love
To feel that they
Three long weeks I bounced around,
As confused as a
pup could be,
It wasn't like Mama promised at all,
A great life was
not meant for me.
Every day I woke up scared,
Would I move
Why couldn't anyone love me?
They just kept throwing me
Finally 2 more people arrived,
I sensed only warmth
They scooped me up and kissed me,
And said Now your life
will be divine.
They took me to a wonderful home,
another doggy and lots of toys,
They said I'm called a rescue
But mainly I'm a much loved boy.
At last my great
life has begun,
And no more will my heart ache,
close in bed at night,
And I get kisses when I wake.
heart smiles in my Forever home,
And love sparkles in my peoples
I'm only touched with gentle hands,
And now baby Hank
