FOR THE DOGS
ABOUT THE DOGS
hope that the poem "He Will Come," presented below, will help everyone
to realize that there are too many unwanted dogs which are abandoned or
killed by irresponsible owners.
Let's make people understand that those dogs have feelings too.
By the proper education we can decrease the number of animals "sentenced to death."
HE WILL COME
close the door
Don't push me away
Why push me away
Don't make me stay
down the car
I can't keep up
This pavement is hot
and my pads are cut
got to quit running
or my heart will pop
Every muscle is aching
Why didn't you stop?
so hungry and thirsty
Darkness is near
But I shouldn't leave
He will come for me here
Several weeks have passed
I'm dead on my feet
They call me a nuisance
because I eat off the streets
Every car that passes
I chase it to see
If it is my master
Coming for me
Though I approach
those that come near
With trust in my eyes
and no sign of fear
With hate in their voice
and a cold, heartless stare
They threaten to kill me
They don't even care
Batter my body
with rocks that they throw
I will not leave
He will come, don't you know?
Overtaken by weakness
my body is numb
I'm sick and so lonely
Oh please, let him come!
I will go back
to where he first threw me out
I'll wait for him there
He will come, no doubt
My thoughts are fading
My chest feels like lead
I'm sleepy, so sleepy
I can't lift my head
It's so quiet, so peaceful
all remains still
There is my master
at my home on the hill
Yes, I can see him
He's calling my name
His voice is so gentle
His hands are the same
He decided he wants me
Things will be fine
I really do love him
that master of mine
My tail wags with pleasure
I can't catch my breath
He came in my dream
but so did my death.
In memory of my sweet Shadow, Edge & D.J.
heavy hearts; and a tear in our eyes
after all these years; we must say goodbye
Please understand; we've done all we could
if there was anything we could do; you know we would
sitting right here; gently rub your ears
while I talk to you softly; trying to hold back the tears
The memories you gave us; we'll never forget
especially the ones; of the day we all met
last hug; and one last kiss
you have no idea; how much you'll be missed
To look into your eyes; this one last time
you tell me it's ok; you know it's your time
your eyes now; and go to sleep
we'll pray to the Lord; you're soul he'll keep
Go in peace now; our good friend
we'll stay right here with you; until the end
of that special day and time
when we'll meet at the Bridge; and all will be fine
We'll run and play; side by side
with a soft warm feeling; deep down inside
memory will live on; in each one of us
you'll always be number 1; to all of us
Have a safe journey; through the night
I promise when you awake; you'll be in God's light
with heavy hearts; and tears in our eyes
just for now my friend; we say goodbye

A Bridge Called Love
For my beloved Shadow, Edge & D.J.
takes us back to brighter years,
to happier sunlit days
and to precious moments
that will be with us always.
And these fond recollections
are treasured in the heart
to bring us always close to those
from whom we had to part.
is a bridge of memories
from earth to Heaven above.
It keeps our dear ones near us.
It's the bridge that we call love.
Dogs In Heaven
An old man and his dog were walking down this dirt road with fences on both sides, they came to a gate in the fence and looked in, it was nice grassy, woody areas, just what a 'huntin' dog and man would like, but it had a sign saying 'no trespassing' so they walked on. They came to a beautiful gate with a person in white robes standing there.
to Heaven," he said.
The old man was happy and started in with his dog following him.
gatekeeper stopped him:
"Dogs aren't allowed, I'm sorry but he can't come with you."
"What kind of Heaven won't allow dogs? If he can't come in, then I will stay out with him. He's been my faithful companion all his life, I can't desert him now."
"Suit yourself, but I have to warn you, the Devil's on this road and he'll try to sweet talk you into his area, he'll promise you anything, but, the dog can't go there either. If you won't leave the dog, you'll spend Eternity on this road."
So the old man and dog went on. They came to a rundown fence with a gap in it, no gate, just a hole. Another old man was inside.
"Excuse me Sir, my dog and I are getting mighty tired, mind if we come in and sit in the shade for awhile?"
"Of course, there's some cold water under that tree over there. Make yourselves comfortable."
"You're sure my dog can come in? The man down the road said dogs weren't allowed anywhere."
"Would you come in if you had to leave the dog?"
"No sir, that's why I didn't go to Heaven, he said the dog couldn't come in.We'll be spending Eternity on this road, and a glass of cold water and some shade would be mighty fine right about now. But, I won't come in if my buddy here can't come too, and that's final."
The man smiled a big smile and said "Welcome to Heaven."
"You mean this is Heaven? Dogs ARE allowed? How come that fellow down the road said they weren't?"
was the Devil and he gets all the people who are willing to give up a life
long companion for a comfortable place to stay. They soon find out their
mistake, but, then it's too late. The dogs come here, the fickle people
GOD wouldn't allow dogs to be banned from Heaven. After all, HE created them to be man's companions in life, why would he separate them in death?"
Dogs In Heaven, It Would Be Hell
faithful dog will play with you
And laugh with you - or cry.
He'll gladly starve to stay with you
Nor ever reason why.
when you're feeling out of sorts
Somehow he'll understand.
He'll watch you with his shining eyes
And try to lick your hand.
blind, implicit faith in you
Is matched by his great love.
The kind that all of us should have
In the Master, up above.
everything is said and done
I guess this isn't odd.
For when you spell "dog" backwards
You get the name of God.
