Re: 9/19 It's A Dog's Life

Post  peewee on Thu Sep 22 2011, 04:48

The dog next dog to me was put down at 18-30 last evening

Remember this one ?


A Faithful Friend



It all starts in the pet shop
When you first see eye to eye
The cutest ball of fluff you’ve ever seen
You just have to pick it up
Just to get a better look
And to prove to yourself it’s not a dream

Then it looks into your eyes
And then the bond begins
And you know that you’ll be friends forever more
So you hand over the cash
It’s a tiny price to pay
And you feel so chuffed as you walk out the door

It’s just like having children
In fact at times it’s worse
As when they’re sick they cant say what is wrong
And then you feel so helpless
As you try to work it out
Just to find it was something simple all along

But as time marches on
Life begins to fade away
And you find your ball of fluff begins to slow
And then without a sound
On a peaceful afternoon
You realise that it’s time you should let go

Then a hole begins to grow
As your faithful friend has gone
And you wonder then just how you’ll carry on
Just remember all the good times
And that little ball of fluff
Candles fade but memories linger on

By tomorrow

Post  peewee on Thu Sep 22 2011, 17:58

By tomorrow






I used to have a nice home
With a family all my own
But I guess they just got fed up
Now I’m here all on my own

They took me for a ride one day
Thought we were going to the park
But they tied me to a lamp post
Miles away in the dark

I must have been there three days
Till I got found by a man
Who took me cold and shivering
And put me in a van

So now I’m in a cage
In a strange room and strange town
And if they cant find my family
They are going to put me down

I don’t know what I’ve done wrong
I always tried to be good
I never made a mess
And never played with my food

I guess they just don’t want me
And going back to what I said
If they cant find my mum and dad
By tomorrow I’ll be dead

Re: 9/19 It's A Dog's Life

Post  BC Williams on Thu Sep 22 2011, 18:39

Sad Peter, but the truth for so many stray and unwanted dogs and cats.

I took our newest boy to the vet today for his check-up and vaccinations. I told them a friend had given Sam to us, and that she'd found him as a stray. I felt a bit uneasy as they scanned him for a chip . . . don't know what I'd have done. He's been with the friend for a year - us since the weekend, but he's grown on us. The point is, if the original owners, had they cared, had Sam micro chipped or tagged, they may have reconnected with him. It's very important to do all these things for our pets. DON'T have so many you can't afford to care properly for what you have. Spay/neuter, annual shots, flea meds, heart worm meds, food and LOTS of parent-like love is mandatory. Try not to be a part of this throw-a-way-a-life cycle so many uncaring people are a part of.

Here he is, Sam the Man:

I have read, cried and commented on the sad story of the unwanted pup called Sam.....I so wish I could home every one of those poor unfortunates..I'm just glad that I rescued all of my pets and gave them a loving home..all were neutered too. My latest little gem is Ruby..from the RSPCA , and even though she's a little minx, I'll always love and care for her.

After my 23yr old cat Bubble died, the house felt empty, so we adopted 18 month old Ruby....When she's settled down a bit we intend to adopt another puppy to keep her out of mischief!! But I'll end up with two cute and crazy pups probably..but what the heck....love cures all!!

By the way Bev, I loaded a poem twice by mistake, can you please delete the first one and keep the second copy as its by Pam Ayres and I wouldn't want to get into trouble for copywrite.
Thanks Jin

Guard Dog





I guess that will be fine
If that’s the best you can do
Sorry I couldn’t make last week
But I was in bed with the flu

Will it be you that does the job
It may be a strange request
But I need to know in advance
Believe me it’s for the best

Then I can tell security
Then they will be ready
But you must be on time
So they can tie up Freddy

When you get here
Ring the bell and wait
And someone will come down
And let you in the gate

What’s your name again
Ho sorry I forgot it’s Burt
Not that I am paranoid
I just don’t want you to get hurt

Post  BC Williams on Sat Sep 24 2011, 17:25

Too cute:-)

How's about . . .

BINGO

I had a mutt named Bingo once
and I tell you right now - he was NO dunce.
Black as coal hair
insolence in his stare.
Nothing screwed with Bingo -
grenades for balls
often causing my heart to fall.

Then one night the ultimate happened.
He heard something outside tappin'
and wrenched the nob all by himself . . .
and it was the kitty named Ralph.
Bingo grabbed the puss by the hock
and threw it down in a wrestler's lock
then licked the poor thing to death
while I gaped and held my breath.

Well Bingo showed his softer side,
for when the licking did subside
he carried Ralph to bed.
There, with Ralph cuddling beneath his head
they slept peaceful as the dead.

Boots Balloons !

Post  Sue McDonald on Mon Sep 26 2011, 17:47



We had a family pet
Boots was his name
a border collie proud
who loved his balloon game

His master would blow up
several balloons for boot
he would charge and pounce on them
as soon as they were loose

He wasn't fussy with the colours
nor their shape and size
just as long as his balloons
were there to terrorise

If pouncing didn't pop them
he'd chase them round the yard
snapping at his loved balloons
thank god they were not hard

The funniest thing of all
once Boots had popped balloons
he once again took off round yard
looking where they'd been !

Boots is up in heaven now
chasing Gods balloons
he was a happy loyal dog
at fourteen, went far to soon

Was sad to see at times
as his doggy clock ticked round
this bouncing playfull little pup
locked in an ageing hound
