Guide Dogs Welcome
Come on in
Pick up a toy
Please don’t chew on the couch
It’s my pride and joy.
The carpet is clean, as is the bare floor
I’d like to keep it that way
Need I say more?
See the wood trim on my desk
That once had been chewed
For this we claim Lexia only thought it was food.
Remember my couch
There’s a hole torn in the leather
From one of Parson’s bad days
He was a bit under the weather.
You’ll see nothing else is torn or chewed or soiled
I thank Jose’ for that
He was the one that we spoiled.
As these puppy’s grow and mature and learn from their training,
They become our best friends...nobody’s complaining.
We’ll pass them along to great instructors for honing the Guide’s skill,
Lots more of hard work, but oh! What a thrill.
Some day they’ll be someone’s life-long companion and friend,
Who will hold them and love them and well...there’s no end.
Many ask: ‘Why is it the time and devotion you give?’
It’s all so other’s may enjoy the life that they live.
