I'm just going through my fathers effects whilst clearing mums bungalow, I found all his army papers from WW2 and amongst it all was this:-

a paper cutting-
They took me home, and named me Rover,
But soon my happy days were over.
I made a mess upon the floor,
that's when they pushed me out the door,
I was only a baby, I didn't know
That the garden was the place to go.
I was put in a car and taken away,
On a cold and frosty winters day.
They left me many miles from home,
Cold, hungry, frightened and alone.
When you found me I was weak and thin,
You picked me up and took me in,
Then you said I could stay,
And I'll be faithful to you till my dying day.
But people should know that it's just not right,
To abandon a dog any day or night.
He needs food and water, a cosy bed too
And has to be taught all the right things to do,
Be patient with him and quite soon he,
A good and faithful friend will be.

What a softie, needless to say he had a number of mongrels!!!
