A Dog Lover's Tale


Gather 'round friends, and I'll tell you a story;
one that took place not all that long ago.
It's a tale of the rescue of two little puppies;
one was named Zack and the other one Zoe.
On a doorstep, abandoned, these canines were huddled
with just one another upon whom to cling.
A scene that would prompt the most heartless to wonder
who could have done such a horrible thing.
One woman, however, just wasn't content
with wondering who could have done this and why.
In this lovely lady, our four-legged orphans
would find a true friend and a faithful ally.
She took the dogs in and provided them shelter;
a home where the puppies could feel safe and warm.
And all those who knew her were stricken with awe by
the selflessness of the act that she performed.
But I wasn't shocked by this generous outreach.
The act, to me, wasn't much of a to-do.
For the one who took in these two poor little waifs
was a lover of dogs—not at all unlike you.
