BELLA - AN ANSWER TO PRAYER!

You sat at the RSPCA gate as we arrived...
open and friendly... 
you gently nuzzled my hand!

We thought that you were leaving, 
so we went through the gate... 
little knowing that God had Sealed our fate!

For months we'd prayed for the right dog,
a companion,
a friend to us all.

We walked around and around the pens...
small dogs... large dogs...
quiet dogs... and noisy ones!

Some friendly... some vicious... all needing a home... 
someone to love them... someone to care...
someone to take them home... to release them from there!

Some possibilities, but not 'THE ONE',
despond and sad
back to the office we went.

"There's one just come in, just have a look do!"
So we trudged back to the kennel where we were sent...
you lay sad, confused, not understanding why you'd been left.

Almost twelve years you'd been at one home
your elderly owners 
must have been bereft!

We KNEW you were God's Answer to our prayer,
your age didn't matter -
we just wanted you out of there!

Hope dawned in your eyes, 
your tail gave a wag, 
after only a few days it was up like a flag!

Fed by hand by Anne for days,
cuddling you endlessly,
she learned your ways.

Rachel played with you 
and brushed your coat,
your playfulness mirrored puppy days!

A keeper of secrets... a friend so true...
a playmate... a guard dog...
an answer to prayer - Bella that's YOU!
