The inside scoop on all things Kerry!

To My Foster


© 2016 Kerry Blue Terrier Foundation


There I sat, alone and afraid. You got a call and came right to my aid.

You bundled me up with blankets and love. And, when I needed it most, you gave me a hug.

I learned that the world was not all that scary and cold, that sometimes there is someone to have and to hold.

You taught me what love is, you helped me to mend, you loved me and healed me and became my friend.

And just when I thought you'd done all you could do, there came along not one new lesson, but two.

First you said, "Sweetheart, you're ready to go. I've done all I can, and you've learned all I know".

Then you bundled me up with a blanket and kiss. Along came a new family, they even have kids!

They took me to their home, forever to stay, at first I thought you had sent me away.

Then that second lesson became perfectly clear. No matter how far, you will always be near.

And so, Foster Mom, you know I've moved on. I have a new home, with toys and a lawn.

But I'll never forget what I learned that last day. You never really give your fosters away.

You gave me these thoughts to remember you by. We may never meet again, and now I know why.

You'll remember I lived with you for a time. I may not be yours, but you'll always be mine.
