A Black & Tan Pittie Wish

by Bob (trans. by Rodney Merrill)

One by one, they pause at my cage,
“A pit bull, a male, a stray, no way!”
“I don’t trust them, no matter what they say.”
They shake their heads and go on their way.

I once had a home, you know; I once had a bed,
soft, plush and warm, a place where I was fed.
Maybe I got in the way; don’t think I did wrong.

Anyway, they decided that I didn’t belong.

Now I sit in a cage and watch day after day,
as dogs go tails a-wagging their merry away.
I’ve about given up, near the end of my rope,
Please look at this face, please offer me hope.

I’m a good dog and people here are nice to me
But I need a life outside a cage, don’t you see?
I need to snuggle and to hear you whisper low,
That you love me dearly; I just need to know.

I promise I’ll give you every ounce I can give,
To you, dear person, for as long as I live.
I may be with you for months, maybe for years,
We will share laughs and there will be tears.

I only hope when you grieve me you’ll still say
you’re happy you took me with you that day.

Bob is being feature by The Pixie Project

We really want to thank them for helping us try to find Bob a good home. Bob has been a conundrum. He is a cute little guy, mild mannered, a nice walker … but somehow he has been invisible to people visiting the shelter. We’re hoping some new eyes will appreciate this sweet face and the little guy behind it.

Well, our Atticus did not last long at all. He’s off to greener pastures.

We have a second cat of the week this week and she is an eye popping beauty. Her name is Violet and she is our KMUN, DAILY ASTORIAN, HITS, 94.9 THE BRIDGE, and KIA Pet of the Week. Violet reminds me of a mocha cappuccino. She is affectionate and friendly with people but does not suffer feline interlopers. It would be best for all concerned if Violet was the only cat in the household.

Because she is part Snowshoe Siamese, she can be a little talky. So, she makes a great movie companion: You can stroke her beautiful coat and discuss the movie together.

Don’t forget, volunteer Linda Dygert is once again staffing a booth every other Sunday for the remainder of the market season. She will have one or two of our many adorable adoptable animals.

Linda can answer questions about the animals and adopting from the shelter, pretty much anything related to Clatsop County Animal Shelter or Clatsop Animal Assistance. So ask away!

Look for her next Sunday, July 24.

Ashley & Maia finished

I would like to thank an extraordinary volunteer dog walker, Ashley.

Ashley has been volunteering at the shelter since last November.

She is here rain or shine. And she’s here to work. She has tireless energy and strong dedication to the dogs.

I asked her one day: “Are you out here every day?”  Read more →
