A Parody for Pups

T’was the week before Christmas
Our rescue was brimming
The dogs needed baths
And the tree needed trimming

In This House

Here in this house…

I will never know the loneliness I hear in the barks of the other dogs “out there”.
I can sleep soundly, assured that when I wake my world will not have changed.
I will never know hunger, or the fear of not knowing if I’ll eat.
