On Christmas morning, I wish...

On Christmas morning, I wish...

For every dog searching trash cans for breakfast, a filled bowl with his name printed in bright letters. 

For every dog who slept fitfully last night, chained in a frozen yard, a soft, warm bed with a person snoring gently nearby. 

For every shelter dog, spending Christmas morning in a soiled run, a forever home, filled with sounds and smells of family. 

For every ..."Christmas" puppy given today, a tolerant, caring owner who won't abandon you as you grow into a real dog. 

For every ailing pet, enough money for your owner to pay the bills to make you well. 

For every lost dog, a clear, safe road, and well marked path, to lead you home.

For every old and tired friend, a warm fire, and a soft bed, to ease your aches and pains. 

And...For every Heart Dog at the Bridge, a moment when you know that you are remembered today, missed again, and loved forever.
