I haven’t posted for a couple of days. I’ve been out of touch trying to find just the right “new family” for me. Yes I decided after 8+ months, it may be time to check out a pet. And I rescued not one, but two white Boxers, named Miley and Casey (who is also deaf). In only a couple of days, they have brought affection and smiles into my life. As sisters they have always been together, and God willing, always will until death.
In my pet newsletter, I was forwarded the following and HAD to share with you. It touched me and feels so rightfully true. Please read, and forward or comment if you’d like … it means a lot to all of us I’m sure.
I Rescued A Human Today
Author: Janine Allen CPDT
I rescued a human today.
Her eyes met mine as she walked down the corridor peering apprehensively into the kennels. I felt her need instantly and knew I had to help her. I wagged my tail, not too exuberantly, so she wouldn’t be afraid.
As she stopped at my kennel I blocked her view from a little accident I had in the back of my cage. I didn’t want her to know that I hadn’t been walked today. Sometimes the shelter keepers get too busy and I didn’t want her to think poorly of them.
As she read my kennel card I hoped that she wouldn’t feel sad about my past. I only have the future to look forward to and want to make a difference in someone’s life. She got down on her knees and made little kissy sounds at me.
I shoved my shoulder and side of my head up against the bars to comfort her.
Gentle fingertips caressed my neck; she was desperate for companionship. A tear fell down her cheek and I raised my paw to assure her that all would be well.
Soon my kennel door opened and her smile was so bright that I instantly jumped into her arms. I would promise to keep her safe. I would promise to always be by her side. I would promise to do everything I could to see that radiant smile and sparkle in her eyes. I was so fortunate that she came down my corridor. So many more are out there who haven’t walked the corridors. So many more to be saved. At least I could save one.
