6th Annual Pets Add Life Children’s Poetry Contest Winners: Kelly, 7th Grade

Note: In this series, we’ll spotlight each winner of the 6th Annual Pets Add Life Children’s Poetry Contest.

Pets Add Life Children's Poetry Contest Winner

Kelly and Dallas

Kelly adopted Dallas from the Orange County Humane Society and has since trained him in competitive agility, where dogs must conquer a timed obstacle course while off-leash next to their handler. The two have become a well-known junior agility team in southern California and were even the face of the American Kennel Club’s Junior Handler program. Clearly, these two can communicate and understand one another incredibly well and we’re so happy Kelly found Dallas!

A Friend at the End of the Leash
By: Kelly, of Wildwood, MO

I was at the pound to find a new friend
A dog that would love me until the end.

I saw a dog, tiny and white
Now I believe in love at first sight.

As I walked over, he wagged his tail
Faster and faster, like wind in a sail.

As I bent down to pet that ball of fluff
He covered me with kisses until I said “Enough!”

Now I don’t have to look far to find a friend
He’s been at the end of my leash ever since then.


Stay tuned to meet our final winner.
