Shelter Dog

Since the moment I held a pencil I've been creating with drawings and words. I believe paintings enlighten and poems entice our audiences.

When you look in the eyes of a shelter dog there's a magic that's found in the love they want to share with you. When you give a shelter dog a home you'll get back endless appreciation from your new friend.

A Sweet Bulldog

SHELTER DOG

There he sat, the littlest of three

Eyes dancing over concern

Chihuahua’s barking big and strong

But he sat, as if to make his plea


Take me home and set me free

Give me life

I’ll share with glee

Take away my strife


Give me a name

I’ll smile at thee

Be it all the same

Numbers are lame


Take my big tag off

Number seven-eighty-two

Watch me jump high to soar

Pick me, love me, and I’m all yours.
