Dear Mom and Dad,
I died today.
You got tired of me and took me to the shelter.They were overcrowded and I drew an unlucky number.
I am in a black plastic bag in a landfillnow.
Some other puppy will get the barley used leash youleft.
My collar was dirty and too small,but the lady took it off beforeshe sent me to the RainbowBridge.
Would I still be at home if I hadn”t chewed your shoe?
I didn”t know what it was,but it was leather,and it was on thefloor.I was just playing.You forgot to get me puppytoys.
Would I still be at home if I had been housebroken?
Rubbing my nose in what I did made me ashamed I had to go atall.
There are books and obedience teachers that would have taught youhow to teach me to go to the door.
Would I still be at home if I hadn”t brought fleasin to thehouse?
Without anti-flea medicine,I couldn”t get the moffme after you leftme in the yard for days and days.
Would I still be home if I hadn”t barked and barked?
I was only saying “I” m scared, I”m lonely,I”m here,I”m here! Iwantto be your best friend.”
Would I still be at home if I had made you happy?
Hitting me didn”t help.
Would I still be at home if you had taken the time to care for meand to teach me manners?
You didn『t pay attention to me after the first week or so,but Ispent all my time waiting for you to love me.
I died today…
