A Dog's Last Will
humans die, they write their last will and testament, give their
home and all they have to those they leave behind.
If, with my paws, I could do the same,
this is what I would ask....
To a poor and lonely stray I would give
my happy home; my bowl, and my cozy bed, soft pillow and all
my toys; the lap, which I loved so much; the hand that stroked
my coat; and the sweet voice that spoke my name.
I would will to the sad, scared shelter
dog the place I had in my human's loving heart, of which there
seemed no bounds.
So, when I die, please do not say "I
will never have a pet again, for the loss and the pain are more
than I can stand."
Instead, go find an unloved dog, one whose
life has held no joy or hope, and give my place to him.
This is the only thing I can give....
The love I left behind.
