We’ve Found a New Home,

For ‘The Sad and Lonely Pair;’

And Now, We’ve Finally Found,

This Frightened Lost Dog Out There



“Dogs are not our whole life,

But they make our lives whole.”


Roger Caras


She had wandered away from her home

It had been almost four long weeks now

She had become disoriented, and terrified

Running further and further away somehow


Her family put up ‘Lost’ posters everywhere

Many people searched for her, night and day

For the past month, she was seen several times

But when strangers approached, she raced away


Most recently, she was spotted at a cemetery

Which covers several acres, bordering a forest

I knew if we could locate where she was sleeping

Our chances of helping her to return home, the best


Several people now began scouring the wooded grounds

Searching for the spot where she was ‘nesting’ each night

After it was found, my trusty dog trap was set and baited

And she was caught, filling her family’s hearts with delight


Thankfully, she was not injured, and not in that bad of a condition

After wandering all alone in the cold, and starving for many weeks

Tonight, she’s once again snuggled up with her humans in her home

I love happy endings, for the lost and homeless animals that we seek


If Your Own Pet Should Become Lost,

Never Give Up Searching For Them;

They Would Never Give Up On You.


And Consider Giving a Homeless Pet,

A Loving New Home, For The Holidays;

So Many of Them, Are Now Lost and Lonely,

And They Truly Deserve A Second Chance Today.



©Christmas 2011, Mr. Ed

i remember my grandfather had a dog he took on a trip to Buffalo, NY ... somehow the dog got lost .... my grandfather was very upset ... i believe it was a bulldog ... eight months later the dog turned up at my grandfather's front door, somewhat famished and torn ... i believe Buffalo NY is about 800 miles from NYC ... he was homeless but never forgot where he lived ...
