Comments about Sheila Estes
Free To A Good Home
I once had a mother, I don't remember her name
I do know she lived outside on a chain. I had brothers and sisters but they all were sold.
Then you came and took me home.
You were a young couple and always I was fed.
You taught me tricks and trained me well. We went everywhere
Together, we even shared your bed.
Two years later and you say I'm getting a little brother.
I'm very excited and lay my head on Mommies tummy to hear the baby grow.
Today my little brother came home! I am so excited and love him oh so much.
You say get away, don't touch.
