Two Wonderful Years

Just before my twelth birthday my owners said to me,
We think it is time to finally set you free.

At first I was so afraid to leave what I knew so well,
But knew I could not produce anymore puppies to sell.

My owners made a telephone call and this lady arrived,
She swept me into her arms as I quickly said my goodbyes.

Though I could see very little and upon arrival was diagnosed with cancer,
My new Mom and Dad said that none of this mattered.

I was pampered, cuddled and adored for nearly two years,
Before the cancer spread and my Mom and Dad shed so many tears.

The last two years of my life were packed full of love with no strife,
Thank you Mom and Dad for the most wonderful two years of my life.
