All of God's creatures have rights, a fact that most people don't seem to recognize.
This includes both human and non-human animals, but not all of them can speak for themselves.
A Happy End
By Lucky Greyhound
Someone's Sofa, USA
The greatest thing I've ever known,
Someone came and took me home,
Away from the track; hope I'll never go back!
Like a nightmare in my memory, my future looked Black,
Then I was adopted and my life spared.
I thank God everyday that someone cared;
'Cause this must be heaven, I'm a winner this time,
Got a ball, a bone, and a bed all mine.
And I'm crazy 'bout my family;
Devoted, you might say.
Like a shadow beside them.
You can bet I want to stay!
And I'm special too, they call me "sweetheart,"
And they hug and kiss me and tell me I'm smart.
Even dreams are peaceful now; no stress or strife.
And I run for fun, 'stead of running for my life!
