“I've hungered, hungered for your touch,

A long, long, lonely time;

And time goes by so slowly,

And time can do so much.”

The Righteous Brothers,

Unchained Melody

I have rescued canines from numerous hells

Some of them were left behind in a hurricane

Some dumped in the woods, or on the streets

And yesterday, I rescued one tethered to a chain


I had received a call from another stranger

She could no longer stand to watch his pain

“They don’t pay any attention to this poor dog,

He is living a life of misery, tethered to a chain.”


So I soon traveled to the address she had given me

And I spotted him peeking out from his hiding place

He was dirty, hungry, thirsty, and looked so pathetic

Immense loneliness and misery were evident on his face


I rang the doorbell, and an elderly woman eventually appeared

She told me she hadn’t had the time to take Roscoe to the pound

This dog had belonged to her grandson, who no longer lived there

He had moved away last year, since he found a job in another town


“And old Roscoe doesn’t like me very much, he always growls at me;

And on my fixed income, I can’t feed him much, or take him to the vet.”

So I quickly offered to take old Roscoe away, and to find him another home

“He’ll have a chance at a better life,” so the elderly woman at the door said “yes”


It took me awhile to convince Roscoe to come out from his dark, dirty, hiding place

But once he did, he rejoiced in the sunlight, and eventually, in the back seat of my truck

Roscoe is now being treated for severe malnourishment and parasites at an animal hospital

A telephone call from one of his very compassionate neighbors, changed his life and his luck


Please Report Any Animal Abuse That You See;

Pets Deserve To Be Loved, and To Live Chain Free

I'm glad there were concerned neighbors that cared enough for Roscoe to call you. I miss my Chewie now. Wonderful poem, Ed ...

Another unbelievable instance of "pre-human" behavior casually exercised on an animal remedied by your sense of compassion. Your work is exemplary. I wish you well.

Thank goodness for the people who know to call you so you can rescue yet another animal in distress! Animals and people do better when not chained in misery.

Nothing is more satisfying than supporting a lonely soul and nothing is more rewarding than protecting nature. My friend you are doing both and I´m sure your heart never runs short of joy. Great work.

Your love for animals and the back seat of your truck

Can we imagine putting a human being on a chain for no good reason. What in the world are we doing to Gods creatures? We were given dominion over them and we are reckless abusers.

God bless you Ed.

So true and such good advice, we can't all rescue animals who are being mistreated but we can speak up or call the proper authorities when we see this kind of behavior.
