“I Adopted Your Dog Today”

I Adopted Your Dog Today

I adopted your dog today
The one you left at the pound
The one you had for nine years
and no longer wanted around.

I adopted your dog today
Do you know that he’s lost weight?
Do you know that he’s scared and confused
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 now
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.

  1. While this is nice, albeit sad, I for one am thankful to the people who had the sense enough when they realized according to the files at the spca, brought their one year old there to be adopted by someone who was home more when they realized they both worked and sadly as they said, didn’t have the time to give him that he needed and he had been a gift. I am thankful for I was the lucky one blessed to have the chance to be his forever “mommy” and the love and wet kisses I get from him have lifted my spirits and if it were not for this couple bringing him there, I would never have found him or him I, so there is a reason for everything. Not all people who find themselves in a position where they have to do this are bad or mean or whatever. I know cause I was one of them when I was younger and had a cat and was in a position where I had to move back with mom to take care of her while she was suffer with cancer and she was highly allergic to cats. I had thought about him over all these years ( 33) and prayed he found a great home, and yes I am aware NOW that they might have put him down, but young and nieve me them choose to believe he did, who is to say he didn’t??? Be it here on earth or with his maker, he knows how I felt cause I took a long time to get over him and sadly animals are more forgiving them humans and not judgemental. Just one more thing we learn from them…and yes I am older wiser and now I miss both my Mother and my first cat…RIP Mom and Royal ( my kitty)
