I think this amazing tribute is meant, for the most part, to speak for dogs
who have been rescued from sad or traumatic circumstances..  But I also
feel that it applies to those dogs who move on from this home to their final,
forever home, whether as puppy or a retired adult. My Poodle
families must all live up to the words that follow......


Here in this house... I will never know the loneliness I hear in the
barks of the other dogs 'out there'. I can sleep soundly, assured that
when I wake my world will not have changed. I will never know hunger, or
the fear of not knowing if I'll eat. I will not shiver in the cold, or grow
weary from the heat. I will feel the sun's heat, and the rain's coolness, 
and be allowed to smell all that can reach my nose. My fur will shine, and
never be dirty or matted.

Here in this house... There will be an effort to communicate with
me on my level. I will be talked to and, even if I don't understand, I
can enjoy the warmth of the words. I will be given a name so that I
may know who I am among many. My name will be used in joy, and I 
will love the sound of it!

Here in this house... I will never be a substitute for anything I am
not. I will never be used to improve peoples' images of themselves. I
will be loved because I am who I am, not someone's idea of who I
should be. I will never suffer for someone's anger, impatience, or
stupidity. I will be taught all the things I need to know to be loved
by all. If I do not learn my lessons well, they will look to my
teacher for blame.

Here in this house... I can trust arms that hold, hands that touch...
knowing that, no matter what they do, they do it for the good of me. 
If I am ill, I will be doctored. If scared, I will be calmed. If sad,
I will be cheered. No matter what I look like, I will be considered 
beautiful and known to be of value. I will never be cast out because I am
too old, too ill, too unruly, or not cute enough. My life is a responsibility,
and not an afterthought. I will learn that humans can almost, sometimes, be
as kind and as fair as dogs.

Here in this house... I will belong. I will be home.
