Puppy Love ~~ a Thanksgiving Day (Thursday) Poem

They named me Toto

God blessed the day
The day I found them
They were walking by
I crawled under the fence
And followed them
until they noticed

They picked me up
Took me in their arms
That made me happy
Could it be they'd take me
My sisters were gone
Girl puppies go first

But I was left
No one wanted me
Was there a chance
Could they take me
Sweet little girl
Her mother seemed kind

They took me around
My front door loomed
I was trembling
Would they ask my folks
Please please I want to go
Go home with them

Ask they did, they did
Can this wee puppy
Come home with us
We'll take good of her
We'll name her Toto
Feed and love her well

Start of new life for me
Happy family I'd found
And every day I felt
their love for me
Wag my tail Thank you God
for our loving home

Toto is my name

Oh Jim, this makes me weepy.......the puppy finding a loving home and knowing the day inevitably came when Toto crossed the rainbow bridge - but years of happy memories between those two dates. Sigh. Happy Thanksgiving, Jim. We had ours a few weeks ago up here in Canada, early birds that we are.

What a great poem of the love of and for a dog. It is a pity they live such short lives, however there should be a lot of welcoming barks for me when I get upstairs!
