October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month and since I came from dog jail a shelter I thought I should help promote this.
So I’m going to tell you how awful it is living in dog jail. I was surrounded by all these other dogs and none of us did anything wrong, but they made us live in cages.
We didn’t have anybody to love on us or take us for walks – well, sometimes we did, but we had to share a few people with a whole lot of dogs.
And everybody wanted their turn for loves and walks.
There was never enough to go around.
When my people finally came and took me out of that dog jail and brought me to my new forever home I wagged my tail and jumped for joy.
Well, I was a little nervous at first, but after I realized I got to stay, then I did those things.
And I had someone around to toss balls to me anytime I wanted.
And someone to pull mischief on. Whew! I’m glad I got that last sentence crossed out before you read it.
There are still lots of lonely dogs in shelters everywhere.
So if you have an empty spot in your house and heart that could be filled by a dog, there’s no better time than now to give a dog a new forever home.
You’ll be glad you did.
And so will the dog.
