Poetry Jam and Flash55

 She called me Lizzy 
While placing me in a cage
 I overheard humans talking
 About forever home
 Cuddly canines
And something about 
Saving the world 
One dog at a time. 
 I didn't know 
What that meant 
But I do now.
It took awhile
 To know I was home
 At last. 
 I’m a farm dog now.

Awwwww. :)

Less than a month ago, I adopted a cat from the shelter and gave him a "forever home".

He's on my lap right now, purring happily.

Pets can bring us a lot of love and joy, can't they?

Thanks for doing Friday 55!
Mine's here. :)

Lucky, lucky Lizzy - she didn't know that she won the doggie lottery that day... but she does now! Our Sophie is a shelter rescue and she is the sweetest, most loving and appreciative cat I've ever known. We won the lottery the day we rescued her! :-)
