I received this from a dear sweet woman I did some herding with last year.
I thought it was lovely.
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, but 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 was able to save one.
I rescued a human today.

We have had 6 of Meg's pups left for a bit now...and I was getting kind of worried...but thanks to a couple simple changes their Godmother, Pam, suggested for their Petfinder listing we've suddenly got a new batch of potential adopters looking to come out this weekend.
Keep your fingers crossed they take some of these guys home!
They sure aren't getting any smaller!! I picked one up tonight and thought I was going to need a spotter :)
They are however some of the nicest all around pups I've ever known.
So very sweet like their momma...and though I wondered about the DNA results...they have Golden personalities through and through!!!
It's like they should be service dogs, I just love them to pieces!! Wish I could keep one myself!
So...here a a few pics
I've been gone and the weather has been terrible...so not a lot of picture taking and I'm way behind on things...
Puppies in the dirt.
A.K.A. my garden....
Think I'll wait to plant that til I can get it fenced...
Who could be mad at those cute faces though?
Brown nosers :)
Doesn't that one look like a little piglet?? So cute!
Sweet sweet Meg
I pray we find her a fabulous home--she is an amazing girl!
So full of love and life!

Aw...kisses with Momma.
Pups love playing the the brush pile in our yard.
That last Beagle pup on his way out :)
Things are going well--pups enjoyed a BEAUTIFUL day yesterday out in the yard playing with the girls...but if only they could all find homes of their own..it's hard being a black dog.

Last little Beagle boy waiting for his forever home.
Doing what Beagles do best--make noise!!
Meg playing with Ty--"holding" her baby
Have a mentioned what a SWEET girl she is??
Little puppy would like some lap time....
Looking out into the big ol' world.
These guys are getting big--some are close to 20lbs!
Ty, always the honorary "Daddy"--he is such a good boy!
He puts up with anything from kids and puppies
But is tough as nails and brave as a lion.
DNA test results came back on Meg's litter....
Pam and I are not too sure about their accuracy this round.
They were mostly Golden Retrievers
A little bit Maltese??!!??
and a tiny bit Rhodesian Ridgeback
