Pet dog or show dog they all have heart

and you as a breeder were there at the start.

Whilst breeding for excellence, let's not forget

those who don't make it, which go as a pet.

Happy were you when they were born

When cash flowed in, keeping finances norm.

Should a time come when their need is great

welcome them home, don't first bolt the gate.

Some will take back when a mistake was made

if the rescue is better than those they parade.

We all like to boast of wins we have had,

so why not of rehomes and feel equally glad.

How can you see one you have bred

not properly settled in a comfortable bed?

Don't turn your back or ignore the phone

there'd be no need for rescue if we all did our own.

Rescue your own and do have a care,

help ease the burden on Shepherd Welfare.

The Feeling that's needed - let's make it a creed,

IF YOU CAN'T DO THE RESCUE WHY THE

HELL DID YOU BREED?

              Helen Davenport Willis, 1997
