I didn't really want you, I wasn't really sure and I'll admit I had my doubts when you first came through that door. Not small, or cute, or fluffy, with big soft puppy eyes, but tall and thin and bony, with bald pink bulging thighs.
You weren't the kind I had in mind, not in any way. Perhaps it would be better, if I took you back today before we know each other, it really won't be kind, To keep you here for one more day and then to change my mind. But against my better judgement, I decided you could stay and quickly I discovered, you were kind in every way.
Your gentleness and patience really stole the show "Why! These dogs are wonderful, I must let others know" You're my gentle giant, who just needed a chance, To show us all what you could be, to wipe away that history. Dispel our preconceptions, that put us all to shame and so we come to know and love, what lies beneath that frame. And now I've come to understand, what I missed right at the start, That Greyhounds need that great deep chest… To house their great big hearts.
What to do now? the race has been run Do I sit in this cage? So I stare at the sun? I waited and wondered no race tracks in sight until one sunny day through those curtains of light You come, and I barked, my head cocked to the side You looked at me once, and we went for a ride You took me to Home, away from my strife you gave me your love you gave me a life.
