This lovely piece was written especially for For the Love of the Dog by one of our Dogster friends and is dedicated to all the dogs. It is done to the tune of “Away in a Manger”

May God Send a Rescue Angel

Away in the dog house, the sad dog does lay
Just wishing to come inside at least for a day
He sits and he watches on the end of his chain
Then slowly he turns to his dog house to pray

Alone in the streets, the stray dog wanders all day
He keeps searching and wanting a soft pillow to lay
He looks all around for someone to play
Then back to his wandering dreams does he pray

Away in the shelter, one more dog comes this way
Unwanted, unloved and just tossed away
He wonders what he did to end up this way
So he joins in the others and in their dreams do they pray

They pray for an angel to show them the way
The way to a new life, a new home to stay
Someone to love them and have time to play
They’ll hope and they’ll pray til the end of their days

Away in a mill, dogs lay sad in their cage
Day in and day out, with no time to play
Another litter had, another taken away
They’re neglected and sick but they continue to pray

They pray for an angel to show them the way
The way to a new life, a new home to stay
Someone to love them and have time to play
They’ll hope and they’ll pray til the end of their days

Then one day it happens, someone comes their way
And lifts off their sadness and shows them the way
The way to a new life, a new home and love
Their dreams of a Rescue Angel comes to life this day

To all the dogs out there we wish you the same
A home and a family and maybe a new name
May God send a Rescue Angel to come your way
And this is our vigil we’ll continue to pray
