leoLeo is the best “PUG” ever.

He’s the cutest & the funniest.

He is loved, healthy & happy & will stay that way for the rest of his life.

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.
I will not shiver in the cold, or grow weary from the heat. I will feel the sun’s heat & the rain’s coolness,
& be allowed to smell all that can reach my nose.

Here in this house…
There will be an effort to communicate to me on my level. I will be talked to, & even if I don’t understand, I can enjoy the warmth of the words.
My name will be used in joy & I will love the sound of it.

Here in this house…
I will be loved because I am who I am, different yet equal my sister.
I will never suffer for someone’s anger, impatience or stupidity.
I will be taught all the things I need to know to be loved by all.

Here in this house…
I can trust the arms that hold, hands that touch…knowing that, no matter what they do, they do it for the good of me.

Here in this house…
If I’m ill, I will be doctored.
If I’m scared, I will be calmed.
If I’m sad, I will be cheered.
No matter what I look like I will be considered beautiful, & known to be of greatest value.
I will never be cast out because I’m too old, too ill, too unruly, or not cute enough. My life is a responsibility, & not an afterthought.

Here in this house…I will belong. I am home.
