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 was there no 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. -Author Unknown
