This was written by Diane Morgan, who does basset rescue, in addition to writing several (good) dog books.

A poem to my foster dog I am the bridge Between what was and what can be. I am the pathway to a new life.

I am made of mush, Because my heart melted when I saw you, Matted and sore, limping, depressed, Lonely, unwanted, afraid to love.

For one little time you are mine. I will feed you with my own hand I will love you with my whole heart I will make you whole.

I am made of steel. Because when the time comes, When you are well, and sleek, When your eyes shine, And your tail wags with joy Then comes the hard part. I will let you go--not without a tear, But without a regret. For you are safe forever-- A new dog needs me now.

As another foster mom - that was a wonderful tribute. The hardest part isn't the rehab that goes on in your home - it's when they must part and go on to their new home.

I AM THE PERSON THAT WILL MAKE YOU WELL
WHEN YOU COME TO ME BEATEN AND BROKEN
I WILL LOVE YOU FOR A WHILE TILL YOU ARE WELL
THEN LET YOU GO TO ANOTHER HOME WITH A WAGGY TAIL
AND HAPPY EYES
I THEN DO THE SAME FOR ANOTHER DOG
