Am I Famous Now?

I was born today, one of 10
My daddy was very famous.
I have lots of half brothers and sisters.
My mother is very famous.
Since she got famous, she has only had puppies.
No more loving hands, no more fun trips... just puppies.
She is always sad when they leave.

tears

I left home today.
I didn't want to go,
so I hid behind my mama
and my three littermates that were left.
You picked me up and carried me away,
even though you said you were
concerned about me hiding from you.
I wanted to love you, but I don't think you liked me...
One day, you said, I would be famous.
I wonder: is famous the same as fun and good times?

tears

My new home is far away.
I am scared and afraid.
My heart says BE BRAVE .
My ancestors were.
Did they go to good homes like mine?

tears

I'm hungry.
I can't eat too much because it will be bad for my bones.
I can't growl or nip when the children are mean to me.
So I run away pretending I am in a big green field
with butterflies and robins
and frogs.

tears

I can't understand why they kick me.
I am quiet, but the man hits me and says loud things.
The lady doesn't feed me good things
like I had with my mother.
She just throws dry food on the ground,
then goes away before I can get too
close for some touching and petting.
Sometimes my food smells bad, but I eat it anyway.

tears

Today I had 10 puppies.
They are so wonderful and warm.
Am I famous now?

tears

I wish I could go play with my puppies,
but they are so tiny.
I am so young and playful that it is hard to lay
here in this hole under the house nursing my puppies.
They are crying now.
I scratch and worry my fur.
I am so hungry,
I wish someone would throw me some food.
I am also very thirsty.

tears

I now have eight babies.
Two got cold during the night and
I couldn't make them warm again.
They are gone.
We are all weak.
Maybe if I take them out on the porch,
we can get some food.

tears

Today they took us away.
It was too much trouble to feed us.
A man grabbed my puppies.
They were crying and whimpering.
We were put in a truck with boxes in it.

tears

Are my babies famous now?
I hope so, because I do miss them.
They are gone.
Am I famous now?

tears

This place smells of urine, fear and sickness.
Why am I here?
I was beautiful like my ancestors.
Now I am hungry, dirty, in pain, unloved and unwanted.
Maybe the worst is... nobody cares.
Nobody comes, through I do try to be good.

tears

Today someone came.
They put a rope on my neck and led me to a room.
It is very clean and has a shiny table.
They put me on the table.
Someone holds me and hugs me.
It feels good!!!

tears

Now I feel tired and I lay my head down.
I reach my paw for this last one who cares...
Am I famous now?
