You picked me out and chose to take me from my family to yours. Though I was initially a little shy and
scared, I soon fit in and loved everyone.
I didn't have a worry because I felt as if you cared.
I was the family clown as I played, jumped, and did tricks for everyone to stare. Your laughter meant the
world to me. I would get excited and happy to make you laugh.
You led me to believe that you really cared.
I admit that I made my mistakes along the way. Oh, but how I remember holding on to your every word and
glare. I wanted more than anything to learn all your rules so I could please you. All I ever wanted was to make you proud
I wanted to prove to you that I care.
As I matured, my love for you made me brave. I remained loyal. I felt special and honored to protect you.
I would have layed my life for you. A more true friend I dare say you will never find anywhere.
For you, I truly care.
I'm no longer a small puppy for everyone to smile at and carry. Nor am I as strong as I used to be when
I was at my prime. Now, I am old and weak as a result of Father Time. Yet, it didn't matter to me because I
looked foward to living by your side until I gave my last sigh. Little did I know I was in for a BIG suprise!
How was I ever to imagine that you would not care for me at this time?
I thought for sure you'd want to keep me until I gave my last breath. Instead you now hand me over to the
pound where my fate now rests. I guess I was wrong to ever think that you would be as faithful to me as I have been
to you. Yet, I try to understand you and I love you just the same.
See, because unlike you, I really do care.
Perhaps I'm no longer of any use to you. Or maybe, I'm just too old and ugly for you to bear. As you
leave me behind and turn your back on me, I give out one last yelp. Before you go master, please just answer me
Why Don't You Care?
