They call me Cage 11
Author Unknown - From

They call me Cage 11......I used to have a name.

I like to go for walks but now there is nobody to take me except the nice man who is the volunteer, but there are so many of us that I don't get to go outside very often in the fresh, cool winter air. I would not like to live outside, as anyone in their right mind would not, but I sure like to go out for a bit now and then! The food is good here and there is more than I care to eat and although it is very noisy, I try not to pay attention to all that loud barking.

I very much miss having a family of my own and laying near them while they watch TV or play computer games. I am a quiet dog who somehow ended up at the dog pound. Lots of people look at the younger dogs because they carry on and bark so loudly and jump around in their cages but I usually just watch all the people go by......

Silently I wish they would pick me to go home with them. I'm a good girl.
