Whether rescued from Council Pounds, lost on the street, needing urgent medical care, need of new home or just plainly some new loving, ALL Cavaliers are welcomed into their foster or forever homes with all love and care.
Rescue has taken place within The NSW Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Club of NSW Inc for a number of years. It is a sad fact that we need to run a rescue service but unfortunately there has been a need to rehouse dozens of dogs each year.
Now that I'm home, bathed settled and fed,
All nicely tucked into my new warm bed,
I would like to open my baggage
Lest I forget,
There is so much to carry -
So much to regret.
Hmm.. Yes there it is, right on top -
Let's unpack Loneliness, Heartache and Loss,
And there by my leash hides Fear and Shame.
As I look on these things I tried so hard to leave -
I still have to unpack my baggage called Pain.
I loved them, the others, the ones who left me,
But I wasn't good enough - for they didn't want me.
Will you add to my baggage?
Will you help me unpack?
Or will you look at my things
And take me right back?
Do you have time to help me unpack?
To put away my baggage,
To never re-pack?
I pray that you do - I'm so tired you see,
But I do come with baggage -
Will you still want me?
