    Default A dog's legacy

    This was found on another forum...trying to find out who wrote it but it's currently unknown...I thought it was lovely


    When humans die, they make a will
    To leave their homes and all they have
    To those they love.
    I, too, would make a will if I could write.

    To some poor wistful lonely stray
    I leave my happy home,
    My dish, my cosy bed, my cushioned chair, my toy,
    The well loved lap, the gently stroking hand,
    The loving voice,
    The place I made in someone’s heart,
    The love, that at the last could help me to
    A peaceful painless end
    Held in loving arms.

    If I should die Oh do not say,
    "No more a pet I’ll have
    To grieve me by it’s loss"
    Seek out some lonely, unloved dog
    And give my place to him.
    This is my legacy I leave behind
    ‘Tis all I have to give.

    Nicki,

    That was so moving. I often think that my little ones that I have had in my life are more loved than most children of our world. Am I wrong to feel guilty? I cannot do anything about the abuse of other children nor the abuse of other dogs, but I can make the difference in my dogs' lives.
    I, like all of you, love my children and my doggies so much and try to make their lives the best..

    Sorry, I am sitting here teary

    Nicki,

    That actually brought a tear to my eye. I have lost so many pets over the years and brought new ones into my life. I hope that I give them all that they need. Such a wonderful poem.
