An old dog Poem for a One Word Prompt, "Muddy"

The little blind dog
Back yard do her thing
When time to come in
Toto wasn't there

Called and called some more
Toto didn't come
Was no dog in sight
The kids were so sad

Crying half the night
Light left on for her
though she could not see
Old, blind, bit crippled

A call three days gone
"Toto's in my barn
She's a muddy mess
Three dogs brought her in"

 - This is a true story, she was a pathetic soul but never before was she lost.  I don't know who was happiest, us or her. But we were all so very thankful for her newfound friends.

A happy ending! Poor little muddy buddy. Thanks for all your kind comments on my poems, Jim. You certainly have had a lifetime of experiences!

How fantastic that the other dogs helped her out. Heartbreaking and sweet at the same time.

When pets go missing, it really is a special little trauma. I think you captured it here in a factual, forthright way that let the emotional undercurrent carry me through. Well done and viva la!

Really love the end... though I assume it resulted in Toto getting a bath,
