Home for a stray



I found a little stray today

And took him home with me

He looked at me with hopeful eyes

That spoke a silent plea


I bathed his coat and brushed him dry

And then when he was fed

His tail wagged in grateful thanks

As he jumped upon my bed


We bonded from that moment on

And he was here to stay

This dog that no one seemed to want

Found a home that day

Cats and Dogs



It was a cold blustery night

When I heard a pitiful mew

There at the door was a kitten

Shivering and nose turned blue


Snow covered his tiny body

So I brushed the poor little stray

Then I wrapped him up in a towel

‘Til his shivering went away


He drank warm milk from a saucer

Then he cleaned his whiskered fur

And then he jumped upon my lap

Where he settled down to purr


Dawg sniffed the little ball of fur

And grunted his consent

The cat curled up by Dawg’s big chest

And went to sleep content
