Sometimes we are the ones needing rescued…..

November 20, 2008

This story brings tears to my eyes – this is how I met Wyatt – well, almost – he was at Pestmart but his almond eyes saw my need and we connected.

Please enjoy the story and if you are compelled by the story – go to your local shelters and “walk down the corridor” – you might not think you need rescuing but you do!

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.

I rescued a human today.
