Dog Rescue Blues Poem Tail Wag

Empty Bench Blues
Oftentimes dog rescues inspire poetry or tail wags. Or both, as is the case for me and my dog Valentino.

Last week my PAWSit post shared three pictures of my dog near empty benches. Bench number three tugged at my poetic heart strings! Thus, it was the first of the bench images to be used by me as poetic inspiration.

My first attempt at a Blues Poem is dedicated to one of our dearest friends. My wee bit of rhyme is followed by a tail wag of thanks to her from "our dog" Valentino.

An empty bench is not a victimless crime.
Come sit with me for a tidbit of time.
Hear my rescue tale...
Not long ago this hound dog might have died,
But for his heart a gentle woman cried,
Heard his lonesome wail—
Earned his wagging tail.


Thank you, NANCY!
