Rescue Bassets with excess baggage

Now that I'm all home, bathed,
settled and fed,
All nicely tucked in my warm new bed,
I'd like to open my baggage lest I forget,
There is so much to carry,
so much to regret.

Hmmmmm, Yes, there it is right on the 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 just look at my things and take me right back?

Do you have the time to help me unpack?
To put away my baggage, To never repack?
I pray that you do;
I'm so tired, you see.
But I do come with baggage;
will you still want me?

Here are two rescues, aka my foster failures 101 and 102, Maxx in the pillows and Myrtle with the leg off. Knowing just some things each went through and had too endure, they unpacked nicely. Had it been me I would be carrying the chip from hell on my shoulder.

That was so sweet, and sad at the same time. It makes me want to go out and bring every basset and other animal for that matter home and take care of them all! Maxx and Myrtle look as happy as can be with you! Thanks for sharing!
Beautiful, truly beautiful. Thanks.
How very moving! I want to help unpack!!! Maybe if we ever get to move, and get a bigger home with more acrage, I'll be able to rescue some sweet old gal and help her unpack her baggage. Thanks for the beautiful words.
That was Wonderful..I just adopted 3 year old Beuford this morning..he has some baggage to but with lots of love and affection he will have his baggage put away for ever..he is sweet, loveable, and funny amazing how he is so sound asleep on the couch that a bomb could not wake him up, but the minute the refergator door is opened he is looking at you..i am worried about his weight i hope i am able to help him lose some
