A letter from Dottie

Dear Mr. dog-snatcher

I saw you watching me from behind a potted tree

In fear I ran inside where behind mom’s skirt I would hide

But, I knew you would be waiting for me any time I went out to pee

What you did to mom an me

Is the same thing that was done to hundreds of moms at the border don’t you see?

Mom’s heart would break and she would cry for me

And still you waited

You waited for the thunder to roll

You waited for the lightening to light up the sky

You knew I was afraid that I would die

That is when you captured me

So…take me to my mom

And set me free

Just call my mom and ask her to come for me

Dear Mr. dog-snatcher,

I know you chose me for your children’s playmate to be

But, a companion to mom that’s what is meant for me

You should have known when you took me to Ponder (a Texas town)

Did you not wonder

Why I did not want to play with the kids to whom you gave me away

Then to their grandmother me they would take

She called my mom for my sake

From my tags she called about me

Now my heart is filled with glee

We are reunited

Mom and me
