Holidays are upon us with joy in the air - moments of remembrance from past Thanksgivings and Christmas' with family and friends - food that was eaten is a memory for all time - one can ever forget the homemade turkey and stuffing - enjoy your holidays with peace and love shown to each other and let that gesture continue throughout the coming years...Established 2009
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. Some- times 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 companion- ship. 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.

Our domestic animals need our love and care - without us so many are lost...rg
