HAPPY TAILS

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.

Halfers:  'Hairy Halfers' is a rescue from our clinic last year.  After a big bath and haircut, she is comfy cozy in her forever home. Myth says that dogs with two different colour eyes can view heaven and earth at the same time.  Halfers is living heavenly and often accompanies her person to work...at a pet food facility!

Frankie:  Look at those eyes and smile! Frankie came from a First Nation community a few years ago and was immediately fostered in Toronto.  City living wasn't for this high energy pup and fortunately, he found his new people quickly.  Frankie loves having a job, attends agility classes and lives for any outdoor activity with his folks.

Takoda:   This 2012 rescue is fondly referred to as 'movie star handsome' by his vet.  Who can dispute that?  Tak was rescued as a 5 month old pup and lives with his Bella, another Cat Lake rescue from 2010.  The two are inseparable and make for a dynamic duo chasing squirrels!
