Before humans die, they write their last will and testament and give their home and all they have to those they leave behind. If, with my paws I could do the same, this is what I’d give:
To a poor and lonely stray I’d give my happy home, my bowl, my cozy bed, my soft pillows and all my toys;
The lap, which I loved so much, and the tender loving hands;
The hand that stroked my fur and the sweet voice which called my name.
I’d will to the sad and scared shelter dog the place I had in my human’s loving heart of which there seemed no bounds.
So when I die, please do not say, “I will never have a pet again for the loss and pain is more than I can stand.” Instead, go find an unloved dog. One whose life has held no joy or hope and give my place to him.
This is the only thing I can give – the love I left behind.
This is my inheritance; my Last Will and Testament.
We hope that you will consider giving another deserving greyhound a special home this holiday season!
