This Poem was written on the day I visited a Championship Show Judges Kennel and saw numerous little cages stacked on top of each other in this persons Garage each with a little dog in it.. It broke my heart to think that this was how they had to live. It also brought back memories I had seen of Rottweilers pacing from side to side in small pens

 

"PRISON"

To all the dogs, who in kennels be
My heart it bleeds and cries for thee
No room to walk, no place to roam
The cursed cage, is now your home

A treat for you a trip to show
Some precious hours then home you go
To pace your pen from side to side
The pain and hurt is deep inside

The joy you'd give if just they knew
To let them walk and talk to you
My prayers are with you night and day
I live in hope to see you play

A dog is for living not just for life
So stop this pain and end this strife
Let them live as it was meant to be
Open the doors and set them free

EDDIE NICOL (1996)
