The Night Of The Freezing 2014

The Night Of The Freezing 2014

The Night Of The Freezing 2014 – I wrote this in January 2013 as the Arctic Vortex swirled around North America. I am re-publishing it because nothing has changed. The stories will once more appear in the news of donkeys, horses, cats and chained dogs frozen to death in open pastures, on front doorsteps  – and in the barren yards that they called home.  

The Arctic Vortex is coming back and outdoor animals will again suffer terribly.

These few words are for them – so in death – they know they are never forgotten. The name of the dog chained to the wall was Angel. I will always remember her!


The Night Of The Freezing:

“It was the night of the freezing

When all through the land

Doggies lay dying

With no helping hand.

The owners sat snug and warm in their homes

While judges complained about old legal tomes

The puppies were crying – their little pink pads

Turned purple with frostbite – these poor little lads.


Their mothers sat helpless – chained to the bone

While whimpers turned silent – now cold as a stone

Some humans cried foul – these deaths must all stop

But others just shrugged and said “go call a cop”.

By morning the snow coats a silent sweet hound

Where life had once sparkled – no longer a sound

And humans now rise and stretch in the dark

On a day when we’re missing another sweet bark!


Rosemary Wright – Canada – witness to this travesty!

And still the laws do not change – animals have no rights and we allow …

This cruelty.
