The Dog Left Behind

I don't know why I lwas left behind

I don't know why I lwas left behind

I had a family once

I had a house and a yard and lots of toys

I had plenty to eat and drink

I had people to love

I hoped someone would adopt me

I hoped someone would adopt me

Then one day all that was gone

I was left behind

I looked and looked and looked but could not find my family anywhere

People found me in the yard and took me to a place called a shelter

This was not a very nice shelter and a four year old dog did not have much hope of being adopted

I ws so happy to have a new mom

I ws so happy to have a new mom

But one day a nice lady came to visit the shelter

She was looking for

A black dog

A big dog            

A nice dog

A lonely dog

A dog she could love

I was the perfect dog for her

My new family

My new family

So I went to live in my new home and soon had two other dogs to play with and one big black cat … and even a horse

I was soon winning blue ribbons

I was soon winning blue ribbons

I was soon doing agility and winning blue ribbons

Then one day I wanted to get a job like my brother Rocky

I am very proud to wear my Delta vest

I am very proud to wear my Delta vest

So I became a Delta Therapy Dog and now I work in schools and libraries and hospitals

I learned how to sit quietly and listen and pay attention and give lots and lots of love

I get to ride in the car and go to fun new places

I love dressing up!

I love dressing up!

I even get to dress up in costumes sometimes!

But my favorite part of working is spending time with my new Mom and making people happy because

Going to schools is a favorite thing to do

Going to schools is a favorite thing to do

I am a LOVE DOG
