I Rescued a Human Today
« on: November 18, 2008, 09:40:23 am »

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.

Please consider a shelter animal.

Wow. That was awesome. Excuse me while I find a kleenex.
