When humans die,
they make a will
To leave their homes
and all they have
to those they love.
I, too, would make a will
if I could write.
To some poor wistful, lonely stray
I leave my happy home,
My dish, my cosy bed,
my cushioned chair, my toy.
The well loved lap,
the gentle stroking hand,
the loving voice,
The place I made in someone's heart,
The love that at the last could help me to
a peaceful painless end
Held in loving arms.
If I should die, Oh do not say,
"No more a pet I'll have,
to grieve me by it's loss"
Seek out some lonely, unloved dog
And give my place to him.
This is the legacy I leave behind -
'tis all I have to give.
Do I Go Home Today - Sandi Thompson
My family brought me home cradled in their arms.
They cuddled me and smiled at me, and said I was full of charm.
They played with me and laughed with me, they showered me with toys.
I sure do love my family especially the girls and boys.
The children loved to feed me, they gave me special treats.
They even let me sleep with them all snuggled in the sheets.
I used to go for walks, often several times a day.
They even fought to hold my leash, I'm very proud to say.
These are things I'll never forget a cherished memory.
I now live in a shelter without my family.
They used to laugh and praise me when I played with that old shoe.
But I didn't know the difference between the old ones and the new.
The kids and I would grab a rag for hours we would tug.
So I thought I did the right thing when I chewed the bathroom rug.
They said that I was out of control, and would have to live outside.
This I did not understand although I tried and tried.
The walks stopped, one by one; they said they hadn't time.
I wish that I could change things, I wish I knew my crime.
My life became so lonely, in the back yard on a chain.
I barked and barked all day long to keep from going insane.
So they brought me to the shelter but were embarrassed to say why.
They said I caused an allergy, and then, kissed me goodbye.
If I'd only had some classes, as a little pup
I wouldn't have been so hard to handle when I was all grown up.
"You only have one day left," I heard the worker say.
Does this mean a second chance? Do I go home today?
We feed a Taste of the Wild because it is a grain free food which is good for our Bostons with their sensitive stomachs and allergies. We feed the Venison and Buffalo formula mixed with the salmon. If you are feeding your adopted Boston A Taste of the Wild Venison and Buffalo formula, and they are being finicky about eating it, then you might want to get a small bag of the salmon formula and mix it in. They love that. Sometimes the salmon formula alone is too rich for them, which is why we mix it instead of feeding the straight salmon formula.
We spend anywhere from $200 - $500 a week depending on the number of dogs we have in house. So please donate often to allow us to continue feeding them a good food that will not interfere with their digestive system.
Any and all Donations for Dog Food are always needed and welcome.
