Dear Mom and Dad,
today. You got tired of me and took me to the shelter. They were
overcrowded and I drew an unlucky number. I am in a black plastic bag in a
landfill now. You had me KILLED because I chewed your shoe. Never once
finding out what I was good at, or like to do that wasn't destructive. You
know we ALL deserved better than this!!.
I was so scared when they put
me in the cage, but the lady tried to re assure me that everything
would be OK. Here's what I look like now. Thanks mom. Thanks
Some other puppy will get the
barely used leash you left. My collar was dirty and too small, but
the lady took it off before she sent me to the Rainbow Bridge. They
even killed a mother and two pups today, so you aren't the only cold
blooded, irresponsible human, I assure you.
Would I still be at home if I
hadn't chewed your shoe? I didn't know what it was, but it was leather,
and it was on the floor. I was just playing. You forgot to get puppy
Would I still be at home if I had been
housebroken? Rubbing my
nose in what I did only made me ashamed that I
had to go at all. There are books and obedience teachers that would have
taught you how to teach me to go to the door.
Would I still be
at home if I hadn't brought fleas into the house? Without anti-flea
medicine, I couldn't get them off of me after you left me in the yard for
Would I still be at home if I hadn't barked? I was only
saying, "I'm scared, I'm lonely, I'm here, I'm here! I just want to be
your best friend. That is all I'm asking!"
Would I still be at
home if I had made you happy? Hitting me didn't make me learn how. Would I
still be at home if you had taken the time to care for me and to teach
manners to me?
You didn't pay attention to me after the
first week or so, but I spent all my time waiting for you to love me. I
was sure the world was a wonderful place when I heard your footsteps and
heard your voice. Now look at me!
today. I died because you nor anybody else bothered to do anything to find
out what I COULD offer you or another family. I died today because you
were too selfish to give this young, ambitious pup the proper care and
guidance necessary. You never ONCE asked a professional for any
assistance. You never allowed me to be your companion ' only got upset
when I couldn't understand your words. You thought you had it all
together, but I'm dead now, because you were DEAD wrong.
don't feel too badly, by the looks of things in this landfill,
there were several thousand other humans just as insensitive and uncaring
as you. I'll be in heaven by nightfall. My hope is that you'll never make
it here. This is definitely a place for those who care! My final words to
you'' May God Bless You!
