Profile: here's a poem about adopting dogs; WHY ADOPT AN OLDER DOG One by One, they pass by my cage, Too old, too worn, too broken, no way. Way past his time, he can’t run and play. Then they shake their heads slowly and go on their way. A little old man, arthritic and sore, It seems I am not wanted anymore. I once had a home, I once had a bed, A place that was warm, and where I was fed. Now my muzzle is grey, and my eyes slowly fail. Who wants a dog so old and so frail? My family decided I didn't belong, I got in their way, my attitude was wrong. Whatever excuse they made in their head, Can't justify how they left me for dead. Now I sit in this cage, where day after day, The younger dogs get adopted away. When I had almost come to the end of my rope, You saw my face, and I finally had hope. You saw thru the grey, and the legs bent with age, And felt I still had life beyond this cage. You took me home, gave me food and a bed, And shared your own pillow with my poor tired head. We snuggle and play, and you talk to me low, You love me so dearly, you want me to know. I may have lived most of my life with another, But you outshine them with a love so much stronger. And I promise to return all the love I can give, To you, my dear person, as long as I live. I may be with you for a week, or for years, We will share many smiles, you will no doubt shed tears. And when the time comes that I must leave, I know you will cry and your heart, it will grieve. And when I arrive at the Bridge, all brand new, My thoughts and my heart will still be with you. And I will brag to all who will hear, Of the person who made my last days so dear. Leslie Whalen, Author

Elvie(Lost!!!)

Elvie(Lost!!!)

My owners abonded me.They took me on a car trip and we went some were far away from home.Then they took me out of the car.They patted me then they played with me.After a while they got in the car leaving me behind.So I started walking, I became hungry I was a little puppy wonderin a bout trying to find some food. I grew tired and became thin. Then some people saw me, they were new in the neighbourhood I was abondened in. They were trying to move their furniture and clean the house so they wouuld only be around for a few hours each day.They kept and eye on me trying to understand who's pup I was. A week had passed I was ill, they came next to me and petted me.Then went somewhere and came back with some food and water and the girl, she gave me a box to sleep in and a nice colar. After few weeks I had a kennel to sleep in and I was given medicine and vacinations.She gave me lots of toys as well. I don't live in the big house anymore because they abondened me because I wasn't a pure breed. My new owner invistigated and found out the car number plates of the mean people who didn't want me. I don't live with my new owner they live in an apartment but I have a nice place in the yard. Now I'm 6 months old.And I'm living happily with my new owner and her family...and guess what they even adopted another stray called 'Princess' who's my big sister now. It turns out I'm a golden retriever x border collie...

Like Elvie I got abonded by my owners as well.They took me on a car trip and the rest is the same story.But a bit diffrent.I was left in a neighbourhood far away from home.I was flowing pepole hopeing they will give me a new home.Then one they when I was following someone a girl saw me.She came next to me and said "Hmm...This puppy looks like a collie.But why is his cote not furry or long like other collies?I wounder who's his owner."Then she said " Wait here I'll bring you same food."so she went.And when she came she gave me some bones and some water to drink.She watched me for few days and said "This puppy is abonded.He dosn't have a owner.Poor little thing I will look after you"Then she started to think a name for me.She said "I always wanted a dog like Lassie.If you were a girl I would put your name Lassie but Lassie means girl.So I'll call you Laddie becouse it means Son,Boy."Then she look at me.I had a colar.But It was too small for me so she gave me a new one.And after that day I started living at that neighbourhood.I also made friends with and older dog.He always came to pick me up in the mornig.We go and do stuff that dogs do.Like playing and sleeping.And at 17.00 I always go back home.At 17.30 when my new owner see's a came back she come's outside to feed me and play with me.Then one day I can't remember why but my frount right leg got broken.It hurted a lot.So I hidid in some bushes in front of my owners apartment so that other animals don't hurt me.I stayed ther for a long while.When it was 17.30 my owner came outside.She couldn't find me.I could she her.I tryed to go next to her but my leg hurted so much that I couldn't.So I started to bark.But my sound was like cameing from somewere else.So she couldn't find me.Then about 5-8 pepole came outside.They all started to look for me.Guess who found me.Of course my owner.Then evryone saw my leg and said what sould we do with it?Then my owner said "Me and my mum are going to take him to the vet."Then her mother came outside with a doggie cage.They put me in it and took me to the vet.The vet said that I wasn't aloud to walk on that leg for 3 weeks.So they took me to there house.I stayd on the balcony for a few days.Then they had to give to a friend becouse dogs won't aloudd in the apartment.They always came to vist me there.After a few weeks I could run again.And becouse I got fed and looked after my coat got longer and It got shiny.I started to look like a collie.Then one they I had to change my home again.But I never forgot my owner the girl.After few months I was looking over the wall of my new home I saw a car.It was there car.The girls father saw me and went home to get his doughter.I't was 18 August 2008.It had been a year from the they she first saw me(18 August 2007).The hole family came to see me.When I saw her getting out of the car I couldn't belive my eyes.It was her.She came and patted me.After a few weeks they came back to vist me.My new owners were there too that day.So that let m ego of my chain so I could run and play with my old owner.After that day they couldn't came back to vist me so I said to my self "It's my turn to vist them" so I got of my chain and jump on my kennel.Then I jumped over the wall.Now I was free.I found the way to my owners apartment and sat outside whating for her to see me.When she came outside to go to school she saw me.She said "Laddie!You came back home like in Lassie."nd she started to pat me.That they my new owners came to took me back when the girl was at school.But I came back again and again.For about 3-4 times.Like in the book the girl said "Laddie dosn't like it there.He should stay with us"I But my owners always took me back home.Then one day when I was going back to her I didn't see the car that was coming. The gril always said that I was just like Lassie.I sit when she says sit.I wouldn't stand up before she says stand up.I would eat if she says eat.I would get hungry but becouse she didn't say eat I wouldn!t eat.And also I could tell the time like Lassie and I only listen to the girl.I know that my story didn't end like Lassie's but I know that she always loved me and still loves me...

One day when we went next to Elvie Princess came out of the kennel.Then we started to look after her as well.She became Elvie's sister and best friend.After Elvie got Lost she got realy sad.And today(12 august 2010)We found Princess, dead that morning in the yard. My parents examined her and my father whose a doctor said that it was a mysterious death and that it needed investigating. Princess died 12 days after Elvie went missing, she hadnt been poisoned she hadnt been hit, but there was blood from her private part. We cried alot because we were told by the vet she had been abused and suffered trauma before her death. Its been only 1 day. We keep forgetting that she has left us and we look out from the balcony and then remember. I love you Elvie and I love you Princess I just wish I could have saved you from those evil people. I'm going to miss your waggy tail Princess and your games Elvie. I know you both are at peace.
