This Is Your Dog Speaking, Are We Still Best Friends?

“This is your friendly dog speaking,
I hope that this time you will be listening.
You have no heart when you pull my chain.
When the skin becomes bare I am in pain.”

“When was the last time you gave me clean water?
It’s so dirty that the bugs don’t even bother.
And the food that you gave me a week ago,
Has given me the runs that every 10 minutes I have to go.”

“People used to touch my long beautiful hair,
Now that it’s fallen off they don’t bother to even stare.
My legs are so weak that I can barely stand,
And if I have to defend you I don’t think I can!”

“I used to be able to bark at intruders that came our way,
With my death soon approaching I just wait for that day.
You’re still my best friend even though you don’t come around,
So I’ll just have to say our good-byes without a bark or sound.

It is so shameful to say a dog is a man’s best friend when the dog is the only one that loves till the end.

    This is sad….and true….the way some people treat animals.
    there is too much cruelty to animals!

    So sad! Thank you for speaking out against such despicable behavior…

  • Thank you so much for your comments they are always appreciated. Yes, I was watching how spoiled my dog is, but I just love him. He is so wonderful and he saved my life once. I wrote about it on another story, but anyways, he is good company. After having him sit on my lap it reminded me of how cruel some of the neighbors are. You have a great day on me.
