Our Time Will Come
Written by the Danes at HHGDR

Grandma tells us every day that our time will come, but when? No, we aren't cute little puppies any more, we are better! We already know to potty outside and you know what our personalities are. We aren't just a cute little lump. No, we don't give those cute little puppy kisses, we give big dog kisses. After all, we are big dogs, or will be soon!

We were bought when we were cute little puppies but then we grew up and were dumped like yesterday's garbage! Yes, we have been dumped for all sort of reasons and some say the reasons were good, but were they really? I did not see the human children dumped! What difference does it make why we were dumped (moving, divorce, new furniture), all that matters to us now is that we are homeless! Why can no one make a real life-long commitment to us?

When will people learn that buying that puppy from that backyard breeder is not putting her out of business but paying her to stay in business? When will people learn not to buy that cute puppy from the pet store?

Grandma and our aunts and uncles at the Rescue love on us and give us all the love they can, but let's face facts, with all of us here it is never enough. We don't want to seem ungrateful but we really want a family we can call our own!

Today, Grandma says our time will come. But when, Grandma? Will I be old and gray or will I still be young and playful? When will I find a wonderful forever home that will take care of me and love me?

Grandma, is it my turn today???
