I got my book from Eldad today! It is wonderful! I wanted to give a huge thank you to Eldad for the book and for everything he and his beautiful wife, Audrey are doing to help save stray, shelter and injured dogs. It is such a joy to know there are people like them in the world.
I found this poem online. The Prayer of a Stray. I would like to dedicate it to Audrey and Eldad and say that you two angels have answered some of these dogs prayers!
The Prayer Of A Stray
Dear God, please send me somebody who’ll care!
I’m tired of running, I’m sick with despair.
My body is aching, it’s so racked with pain.
And dear God I pray as I run in the rain,
that someone will love me and give me a home.
A warm cozy bed I can call my own.
My last owner neglected me and chased me away
to rummage in garbage and live as a stray.
But now, God, I’m tired and hungry and cold.
And I’m afraid that I’ll never grow old.
They’ve chased me with sticks and hit me with stones
while I run in the streets just looking for bones!
I’m not really bad, God, please help me if you can.
For I have just become a “VICTIM OF MAN”!
I’m wormy, Dear God, and I’m ridden with fleas
and all that I want is an owner to please!
If You find one for me, God, I’ll try to be good.
I won’t run away and I’ll do as I should.
I don’t think I’ll make it too long on my own,
cause I’m getting so weak and I’m so all alone.
Each night as I sleep in the bushes I cry,
cause I’m so afraid, God, that I’m gonna die!
And I’ve got so much love and devotion to give,
that I should be given a new chance to live.
So, dear God, PLEASE, PLEASE answer my prayer
and send me somebody who WILL really care…
