On Christmas Morning

On Christmas Morning...
I wish
For every dog
searching trash cans for breakfast,
a filled bowl with his name printed in bright letters.

For every dog
who slept fitfully last night, chained in a frozen yard, a soft,
warm bed with a person snoring gently nearby.

For every shelter dog,
spending Christmas morning in a soiled run, a forever home, filled
with sounds and smells of family.

For every "Christmas" puppy
given today,
a tolerant, caring owner
who won't abandon you
as you grow into a real dog.

For every ailing pet,
enough money for your owner
to pay the bills to make you well.

For every lost dog,
a clear, safe road, and well marked path, to lead you home.

For every old and tired friend,
a warm fire, and a soft bed,
to ease your aches and pains.

For every Heart Dog at the Bridge,
a moment when you know that you
are remembered today,
missed again,
and loved forever.
