waiting patiently

Last weekend 
I was racing around getting errands done, being beautified 
I espied


Of course 
I wanted to get closer, 
see these pups
get some photos


this guy was busy 'loving' a toy 
I was concentrating on him 
when 
noticed 

him
Oh isnt he sweet 
he's not a puppy, 
no, 
he's an older dog, 
abandoned, 
given up, 
I dont know which 
but 
I was touched by his posture, 
his eyes


I knew I had to leave.  
We live in a tiny apartment 
that doubles as Toonman's office 
we're owned by two cats 
and 
much as I would have loved to adopt this guy
I knew I couldn't 
but
 those eyes haunt me still

  1. He is searching...I do hope he found a forever home that day. it would have been hard for me, just like you, to leave him there.

  3. I hope they all found good homes.
    It pulls at my heart too much to
    watch pups in cages... I would bring them all home, but then our one
    and only would be upset.

  5. Oh, so sad. Maybe someone who needs a dog adopted this sweetie who so clearly needs a person.

  6. Oh, it tortures me so to see unwanted dogs and cats seeking homes. I have to avoid scenes like this cause I just want to embrace them all and take them home. His eyes pleading "pick me".
    I so hope he is no longer there.

  10. Oh his eyes caught me right away in that first photo. He's got the Benny watchfulness but without the joy. He breaks my heart.

  12. My heart breaks when I see these little orphans. I try to donate a few bucks to keep the little ones fed, but I have no room for another animal either....my three would riot!

  13. I know just how you feel. Let's hope someone saw what we see & brought him home that day.
    He really is precious.
