A Puppy Mill Dogs Wish - Sad!

I wish I was a Rottweiler and I could carry a gun
I'd go after all those folks, who think that tortures fun
I gather up a gang of us, a Spitz, a chi, a hound
We'd travel in a motorhome, and hunt these people down

We'd start with all the puppy mills, we'd open all their doors
And tell them all "run like the wind, and head for golden shores
There's someone there that's waiting, with open arms for you
I promise you can trust them, they're animal rescue.

If I could talk, I'd call the millers out into the night
I'd bear my teeth, and hold my gun and watch them shake in fright
And then I'd laugh and laugh and laugh and then I'd laugh some more
As I threw them in the wire cage and slammed the metal door

So its on to the next, Oh this is fun as we joke around with each other
We start drawing maps and making plans Got a lot of ground to cover.
There's a pit on the road, someone has dumped We offer him a ride,
Its not hard to see the life he has led by the pain that's in his eyes.
We give him lots of food and drink, and he shows no aggression
He hears our plan and wants to join, and teach mankind a lesson

We're off again, to search this land for the murderers who went free
To teach the ones who stomped and burned and hung dogs from a tree
One by one we paid them back for everything they've done
And repeated their words back to them, "isn't torture fun?".

After days and days of traveling, gathering troops along the way
Thinking of our forever homes and the people who threw us away
We long for a loving family, Oh wouldn't that be neat!!!
Instead, they dump or beat us or have us put to sleep

Maybe we are not thru yet, there's many more folks to see
The judges and lawyers, the USDA or maybe the AKC.
We give all politicians giardia and mange, dump them on the highway
by the side of the road
And strip them of their dignity, give them fleas and ticks abode.

I smile to myself as this vision dances in my head
My eyes grow very heavy, as I snuggle in this soft bed
I can hear in a far distance, dogs whining and then a scream
When I wake up, I realize that this was all a dream

The wire digs into my side, my feet and body's sore
As I look down to the ones below that cold, hard, wire floor
I start to beg like all the rest, please set me free today.
I pray to God, I'd rather be dead then live this horrible way

And guess what, I'm not a rot nor do I have a gun
I'm just a little dachshound, put on earth to play and run
To be loved by ALL humans, like every dog should be
But if I did have a gun right now, I'd use that gun on me.

One thing I've noticed in the fosters I've had over the years is the amazing powere of forgiveness in an animal.Dogs,horses,cats all of them.Some will almost completely forgive humans in general and some will only forgive the humans that earn that right,but they all seem to have more in them than most humans.I've fostered dogs out of mills that have had their teeth knocked out by brutes with shovels,dogs that have spent the first years of their lives never hearing a kind word , feeling grass under their feet or even seeing sunlight.One of my horses was in harness with another horse when they both slipped into a ditch and were trapped upside down,the man thought beating them would help get them out.One of my fosters was of the track and was found starving in a field with her baby,she will now come up to us looking for attention.I could go on,but I think most of us know how low people can go.I don't think many animals want revenge,most ask only for mercy.

I agree, the dogs I work with at the Humane Society all seem to know they are being helped...they can tell when I walk in their space that I mean them no harm, even the weary ones...the broken ones, they accpet me and my touch. I believe dogs let go of the past and live in the present if the present is a positive experience. I don't think they ever forget, but they do forgive.

This is so sad. I deal with injustice at work and the only thing that keeps me going is the fact that all those bad people who don't ever try to change their ways will be judged in the end and every pup, kitty or other animal they have abused will be paid back at least one hundred fold. I would much rather see abusers realize the error of their ways and take steps to fix themselves than be punished for past crimes although there would have to be some kind of restitution.:cry:

No animal should ever have to go through life living in a mill and yet, so many do. I recently went to a pet store to browse through some toys and that store had dogs up for sale. Everybody crowded around them and all addressed their "ooh"s and "aww"s but the whole time, I just wanted to shove them all into a shelter >< Why can't all of these pet stores carry shelter animals and not support mills? I was disgusted so I just left without purchasing anything.

I'm gonna forward this to many friends and hope they get the message too. It's such a sad poem:sad:
