FOSTERING IS SO VERY REWARDING
« on: April 10, 2007, 10:02:30 PM »
PLEASE HELP LAST CHANCE RESCUE BY FOSTERING AN OLDIE.



" I might have grey hairs but my soul is still young,
My legs may be creaky but mine's the wisdom of age
Why battle the wind when I can walk in your footsteps;
Are you my family, are you where I belong?

There's life in this old dog, even when I grow tired
You can talk to me quietly, I can wag when your near.
It may be that my hearing or sight is not sharp
But I can still eat my dinner and roll in the grass.

I don't require much and you know I'd be glad
To walk slowly with you, or just sit by the fire,
And should the wind stir my spirits on a walk in the park
You know not to worry as I won't be gone far.

I might be an old dog, but there's life in me yet
Do look at me softly, for though time is not kind
I still have the chance to make the most of my days;
And when my time has run out as we both know it will
Please don't think that I'm gone, but remember me still
I'll be the sun in your window, the stars in your sky
The warm body beside you as your time goes by.

Please don't pass by my kennel because I am old
Is there room in your heart for a friend who was once
As fleet as an arrow, as bold as a bear
But now I look at you sadly, could it be that you care?

Give me a meal in my stomach, a fire at my back
Show me patience and love and you will never regret
Having an oldie to cherish and cuddle; you see
If every dog has his day, perhaps today is for me.

:)hi my name is David and me and my wife are looking for a small dog, I have a heart condition and arthritis so all are at home must of the day, We live in Wakefield, West Yorkshire and hope to do long term fostering if it is just a small dog, I can not manage a big dog pulling at me and we only have a small bungalow, Over the road is a big field so we can take it for a run, If we can foster for long term we would pay for its food, toys, etc, We hope you can find us a dog as we would love to have one and as long it is not to fast for me, My e-mail is david.kirk@mypostoffice.co.uk
Thank you.
David.

My dog went 'missing' 4 weeks ago.  The house was very very empty without him, and not wanting to get another dog, after 4 horrid pointless days I decided to foster for a local charity, Dogsfriends.  It really has helped me, them and 3 dogs!  The first found a home after 4 days, and I presently have 2 terriers, Daisy and Bailey, who do manage to bring a smile to my face.
