I wish someone would tell me what it is that I've done wrong.
Why I have to stay chained up and left alone so long.
They seemed so glad to have me when I came here as a pup.
There were so many things we'd do while I was growing up.
They couldn't wait to train me as companion and as friend.
They told me they would never fear being left alone again.
The children said they'd feed me, said they'd brush me every day.
They'd play with me and walk me, if only I could stay.
But now the family hasn't time, they often say I shed.
They won't allow me in the house, not even to be fed.
The children never walk me, they always say, "Not now!"
I wish that I could please tell them won't someone tell me how?
All I have is love, you see, I wish they would explain,
Why they said they wanted me, then left me on a chain.
Please don't adopt our dogs and sentence them to life on a chain!
We need dog blankets and bath towels, good-quality dog and puppy food, cat and kitten food, plus formula and pet bottles for both. The pets appreciate treats and toys, also. Fleas are very bad this year and we need Adams' Flea Mist for dogs/puppies and cats/kittens. We also need hand sanitizer, paper towels, office supplies, etc.
