Searching For A New Best Friend

Post by Loops » 09 Mar 2010, 10:34

Searching For A New Best Friend

4 legs, a tail and a big wet nose
Shaking with excitement through to their toes
Chasing a ball, wherever it goes
Is there one out there for us? Nobody knows...

Finding a place that we never knew
With people who love dogs as much as we do
Willing to take in the pups that are blue
Matching with owners to make dreams come true

We’re hoping a new friend is not far away
We filled out the form, then we had our say
Homecheck to go, then wait for the day
That they phone and we’ll cry out “hip-hip hooray!”

Where are these people you ask – and who
Would be happy to match up a dog with you?
They are heroes to Labs the whole country through:
The folks who are North West Labrador Rescue.

Louise Tucker, March 2010.

Love your poem Louise! It really captures the experience and excitement of the adoption process and is a lovely tribute to Rescue. :thumbright: :love2:

You're becoming excited,
Your homecheck draws near,
I'll be there on Saturday,
Of that have no fear!!

A chat, fill in the form,
A cup of tea I shall grab :1967: (no sugar, lots of milk!!) :1968:
And hopefully soon fix you up
With a big hairy Lab!!!


See you Saturday, Louise & Scott.
Love,
Aileen xx

Awww Good Luck on Saturday Louise, I'm not surprised you are excited, there is something very special about adopting a Lab from MKF, You have the love, they need the love.

Cannot wait to hear how everything goes and to see what's around the corner for you.
(Probably a fun, furry, frolicing, four legged friend)

Good Luck
