A Dog’s 4th of July Reason to Celebrate
It’s the 4 of July , reason to celebrate is because we’re free.
It gives us the chance for you to be you and for me to be me.
Without a fight this would not have been and it’s all thanks to you.
And I certainly hope everyone continues to do what they do.
You see, without the men and women going out to fight
For what they believe in, to keep our rights in sight.
We would not have the country that we do have now.
So to all the men and women alike, to them I take a bow.
This not only goes for those who fought to keep our country free
This also goes out to all those who fought, for all the animals like me.
For all you kind people who fought to free us from this cage
You have helped to free us from our prison and the miller’s rage.
And also to those who continued to fight to free us from our chain
No longer are we all alone and stuck outside on the terrain
We now can have a real home, with people who care about us
Where would we be without you, and we thank you very much.
To all you rescuers, I take a bow and thank you immensely
You gave us all the care in the world and the chance to be free.
We thank you all for coming to us and giving us a hand
To have a home and a family and to run upon this land.
Happy 4th of July!
Love, A Dog
