Close your eyes, have no fear

The monster’s gone and he’s on the run

And your mommy’s here

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful, beautiful boy

Oh, hi everyone!  I was just thinking of the song my foster mom sings to me every night in Egypt.  You see, my name is Sizer and I’m a seven-year-old boy who was rescued from the streets of Cairo…a very scary place full of monsters.  Lots of other dogs looking for food and shelter just like me.  It was really tough and I was afraid of other dogs.  I still am.  I’m not aggressive with them ~ I’m just afraid of them.  Once I get to know them and know I am safe, I’m okay.  But initially I am afraid and I bark at them to keep them away from me.  That’s why that John Lennon song means so much to me.  On the other hand, I love people.  I love children and, wait for it, I also love cats.  Nowadays I’m a happy boy.  In fact, I so love to be cuddled and hugged.  Now that I’m off the streets, I’m healthy except my two front legs are shorter than my back legs, which makes me look a little different but it sure doesn’t stop me from running and having a good time.  My foster mom is getting me ready for a long journey.  She says I’m coming to Canada for a better life.  I don’t know what I did to be so lucky but when I get there and if you give me a small place in your heart and home, I will pay you back with love and gratitude every single day.  So, as I am soon to cross the ocean, there is no better way to finish my little story by telling you what my foster mom told me… “Beautiful boy, you are about to go on a long journey and here’s the end of the song to help you on your way”…

Out on the ocean sailing away, I can hardly wait to see you come of age

But I guess we’ll both have to be patient

Because it’s a long way to go and a hard row to hoe

Yes, it’s a long way to go but in the meantime

Before you cross the street, take my hand

Life is what happens to you

When you’re busy making other plans

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful, beautiful boy

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful, beautiful boy
