Prayer of a Stray author unknown

Dear God, Please send me somebody who'll care!
I'm tired of running, I'm sick with despair.
My body is aching, it's so racked with pain,
And Dear God, I pray as I run in the rain,
That someone will love me and give me a home.
A warm cozy bed and a big juicy bone.
My last owner tied me all day in the yard
Sometimes with no water and God that was hard!
So I chewed my leash God, and I ran away
To rummage in garbage and live as a stray.
But now God, I'm tired and hungry and cold.
And I'm so afraid that I'll never grow old.
They've chased me with sticks and hit me with stones
While I run the streets just looking for bones!
I'm not really bad God, Please help if you can,
For I have become just a "Victim of Man!"
I'm wormy Dear God, and I'm ridden with fleas and
All that I want is an owner to please!
If you find one for me God, I'll try to be good
And I won't chew their shoes, but I'll do as I should.
I'll love them, protect them and try to obey
When they tell me to sit, to lie down or to stay!
I don't think I'll make it too long on my own,
Cause I'm getting so weak and I'm so all alone.
Each night as I sleep in the bushes I cry,
Cause I'm so afraid God, that I'm gonna die!
And I've got so much love and devotion to give,
That I should be given a new chance to live.
So Dear God PLEASE, Please answer my Prayer and
Send me somebody who WILL really care...

Brasco and Betty: Way Before Puppies

The big thing was wondering how Brasco would react.  He had been the only dog, living with my dad, my son and me.  He was 4 years old when we got Betty.  We put her down on the floor and they stared at each other for a while.  Brasco really seemed to like her and Betty was a bouncing baby, so she was all over him.  Brasco watched over her like a mother would.  lol  I was really amazed at his reaction.  We got a bigger box for her to sleep in and he would watch me every night while I put her "in the box."  That became our new saying "in the box" because Brasco knew what that meant.  I would say are you ready to put Betty "in the box"?  He knew she was going to sleep.  Even after all these years, (Betty just turned 7 years old) we can still say "in the box" and Brasco perks his ears up.
 After 3 litters of puppies, we figure Brasco really is ready to put Betty "in the box".

Painted Beer Bottle/Etsy

This bottle has been thoroughly washed and label removed. The background has been blotted on with a sponge, so its kind of "blotty". I thought it looked kinda kewl that way, so I left it. Most of my bottles are like that.
There are random designs, lines and dots. Off white, turquoise and brown. The top has been hole-punched for a stem decor and it has a felt "necklace" just for this bottle. You can have necklace and/or stems or fake flowers.
("necklace" is included) **

Acrylic paints are used and a coat of decoupage glue and a coat of shellac holds it on and makes for a great shine.
