A poem written for my rescue dog Nathan a dachshund who was abandoned two times until he was sent to me.  the best little giant in the world!

Nathan the Giant A little giant he became discarded because of his age Surrendered to a cold steel cage His warm soft bed traded for a dog pound Confined in fear his bellows abound Trying to drown out the growling sounds Standing tall upon his stubby legs Take me home he begs This little Dachshund a Giant he became Hoping to once again claim a family name She wondered in looking for a companion Feeling the cold crates and tearing I want to capture all of them so Dearing But one caught her sight, as he stood so austere He is the one sent to me from above She knew of his journey through fearful times So connected was she as she traveled same signs She cradled him daily and promised this godsend That together they would be forever friends He returned to safety and warmth in his new home No need for a bed for hers was his dome Together their lonely spirits were no more For this little one gave her love evermore The once empty lives became an old adventure Nathan the Dachshund became her little giant treasure Margaret Franceschini September 12, 2015

Beautiful tribute, and thank you for emphasizing the blessing that adopting can be...both for the animal and the person. This gets a 7 from me. -G
