Pup in shelter - December 2011
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.
She became my teacher. she taught me about unconditional love and to look at the world with wide eyed joy and anticipation. That's when she stole my heart away.
My life had changed for the better with her in it. Her willingness to please and her good nature were like a drug. I was addicted, intoxicated...hopelessly in love.
Life moves on and sometimes we lose what we treasure the most. My baby is leaving me. I'm not sure I can breath without her...I don't know if my heart can beat without her. See, she never told me she was a thief...first she stole my breath and then she stole my heart. By Linda Schiller - Eleventh Hour Rescue
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.
