“As we go down life's lonesome highway

Seems the hardest thing to do is to find a friend or two,

A helping hand - Someone who understands,

That when you feel you've lost your way,

You've got someone there to say I'll help you.”

Lionel Ritchie,

Say You, Say Me



Morning Rush Hour

On A Busy Highway

He’s Lost and All Alone

Will He Survive This Day


And Very Soon, The Chase Has Begun

By Some Compassionate State Troopers

They All Try Very Hard, To Capture Him

But He’s Frightened, Through and Through


Several Miles Down This Busy Highway

This Little Lost Soul Takes The ‘Off Ramp’

Here, Several Caring Souls Try To Catch Him

Despite Their Compassionate Efforts, They Can’t


He Has Now Journeyed Over Seven Miles In 100 Degree Heat

He Eventually Takes Refuge In Some Tall Grass By The Road

A Very Determined Young Man, Finally Corrals This Lost Soul

Everyone Is Now Joyous, On The News, His Story Soon Unfolds


He Is Now Exhausted, Dehydrated, And One Of His Paws Is Bleeding

So I Pick Him Up, He’s Too Tired To Protest, And We Are On Our Way

I Carry Him To My Truck, And Then Transport Him To My Vet’s Office

Where Lucky Little ‘Rags’ Is On The Road To A Much Better Life Today


Morning Rush Hour

On A Busy Highway

He Is Lost and All Alone

But He Did Survive This Day


Thanks To Many Caring People

This Little Lost Soul, Is Now Safe

No Longer Lost, Alone, Or Afraid



©A Brutally Hot July Morning 2012, Mr. Ed

You are truly a dog's Angel. Stay cool, calm, and collect more dogs from the brutality of uncaring humans.

Oh My, a goood happy ending, so wonderful Mr. Ed not has a poor lost soul to look after......neat oh.
Reviewed by Victoria's Poetry & Voices of Muse 7/7/2012
it makes me so sad that any animal is ever alone & hungry
not just for food but their need for love...
just like we need kindness & tenderness & compassion they too
need the same emotional wealth...
..and too (as I am sure you know) it can be dangerous to try
and catch a stray lost from home as they are frightened
and may bite-which doesn't mean they are a mean animal
they are just takes patience too save some
I used to be a zoo house for saving all the animals
I even try to save baby birds, rabbits & all the toads :)

Poor little guy, but you & he found each other and I have high hopes after a bit of water and food he will perk up and be happy again...(maybe another addition to YOUR doggy entourage...?)
