I am the Bridge

Lora from It’s a Dog’s Life posted this as a comment, and I thought it was so good it really should be a main post.

It is true. I am a bridge for these rescue dogs. I love having them in my life, if even for a short time.

I am the bridge
Between what was and what can be.
I am the pathway to a new life
I am made of mush,
Because my heart melted when I saw you, Matted and sore, limping, depressed, Lonely, unwanted, afraid to love.
For one little time you are mine.
I will feed you with my own hand
I will love you with my whole heart.
I will make you whole.
I am made of steel.
Because when the time comes,
When you are well, and sleek
When your eyes shine
And your tail wags with joy
Then comes the hard part.
I will let you go – not without a tear,
But without a regret.
For you are safe forever – A new dog needs me now.

  1. Oh I love this! I am not able to do formal fostering because out town has a limit on how many pets you can have and it’s THREE. because of where my sister works there are a lot of strays around and she is always trying to catch them to bring them home . So I always help her out by doing the web end of things and making contacts. There just never seems to be enough time to save them all 🙁

  3. Hi Daethian, There isn’t enough time or money to save them all, but we are working on it. 🙂 our dog limit is 3… I think, and we have 4 regular ones and fosters coming and going. We are careful, though, about keeping them quiet and well mannered, so we haven’t gotten in trouble. If we did, we’d have to move.
