|Huge abscess on his back that was cancerous. |
Hip bones and back with no hair.
'Tis the month before Christmas and all through the town,
every shelter was full - I was lost and not found.
The numbers were hung on my kennel so bare,
I hoped every minute that someone would care.
Someone will come adopt me and give me the call,
"Come here, handsome Nicholas - come fetch your new ball!!
But I just sat there and thought of the days..
I was treated so fondly when I had cute baby ways.
Once I was little then just grew and grew.
Now I'm no longer young and no longer new.
So out the back door I was thrown like the trash.
They reacted so quickly - why were they so rash?
I "jumped on the children:, "don't come when they call",
I "barked when they left me", "I climb over the wall."
And then I saw her as she came through the door
I pulled my tired body off the mat on the floor.
I wagged my stump and thought maybe she'll try -
she looked at me for a minute and then began to cry.
Do not worry there boy, I've come to take you.
Your world starting now will be exciting and new
So Life's Little Paws took me so starving and sick,
all I had to offer them was a weak feeble lick.
Off to the hospital they took me so fast
I was so weak they thought "He just cannot last!"
The bills will cost hundreds, but they just don't care.
They fundraise so hard but they aren't nearly there.
So this is my offering, a raffle you see
The rarest of items, a Danbury Mint Cocker Tree.
So won't you buy a ticket and help me get well?
And who'll win the raffle? Well my friends, only time will tell...
Raffle will run till December 14, 2012. It will then be shipped 2nd day to you in time for Christmas
