A Christmas Wish for the Animals

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.

and

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

I couldn't possibly read that twice, it's too sad but at the same time so inspirational. IF ONLY.

Springermom posted this a while ago but it was definately worth a second look. I think it is great and here's hoping for a chrismas miracle to make it come true for all animals :) .
