Heartlee and Squeakers
(a poem by Laurie Friesen)

In a place where the lonesome are left to roam
Heartlee was a Bedlington who had no home.
With no one to love & wandering about
Heartlee's future was in doubt.

He found a friend, a mouse named Squeakers
Loyal & true, this friend was a keeper.
Near & far they once did travel
Until Heartlee's stuffing began to unravel.

Searching for someone on whom to depend
Heartlee's coat that they could mend.
Upon a quaint door hung a welcome sign
That read to all "Crafty Canines".

It was there that they were invited in
And Heartlee's healing could begin.
Stitched up with lace & sewn with care

Heartlee's wounds they did repair.

Crafty Canines II made Heartlee look like new
A loving task long overdue.
Worn from a world where they once did wander
Heartlee & Squeakers began to ponder.
"Will anyone out there take us in
And give us a forever home where our lives could begin?"

So Crafty Canines reached out to HEART
A Bedlington rescue who would take part.
Heartlee's story has a happy ending
With your help & a little spending.
Don't wait too long to adopt these two
Heartlee & Squeakers are waiting for you!
