Smiles come to add sparkle to the mind - happiness builds within to bring stability to questionable emotions - pureness all around lightens ordinary dullness - today is the beginning of nature's promise - let's open the eyes wide to view it all with gladness in our hearts...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.
