Rescued Hearts

Taking care of rescue dogs is something I do best.

I know because I've done it, and I've surely passed the test.

The dogs I've bathed, the food I've fed, the vacuuming I've done,

And all to watch a frightened soul sit dreaming in the sun.

My own dogs I've neglected, but I tell them everyday

That I love and cherish each of them, though a new dog's come to stay.

I know they understand this, for in their eyes I see

The love that I have given them, come smiling back at me.

Some people think I'm crazy, some others think I'm great.

But very few can understand what really is at stake.

If I can love and help a dog to find a better way,

My one life is much richer; I look forward to each day.

So now you know my secret, It's there for all to see

The love I give, the life I save, I do it all for me.
