People should realize that getting an
animal  in their homes is a big
 responsibility and a lifetime commitment.
 Animals bring us so much joy every
 single day and it's so  sad when you
read something like this and you
know it goes on every day.

Lonely Dog

I wish someone would tell me what is it
That I've done wrong.
Why do I have to stay chained up
and be 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.

The Master said he'd train me as a
Companion and a friend.
The Mistress said she'd never fear
To be left alone again.
The children said they'd feed me and
Brush me every day.
They'd  play with me and walk me
If I would only stay.

But now the Master "hasn't time"
The Mistress says I shed ~
She doesn't want 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 them.
Won't someone tell me how?
All I had, you see, was love.
I wish they would explain
Why they said they wanted mine,
And then left it on a chain.
