    One of my facebook friends posted this today. From a dog's point of view.

    I RESCUED A HUMAN TODAY by Janine Allen

    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 overworked 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.

    Thought that was lovely and wanted to share.

    OK I have been hardened by my experience lately, and have not cried, but I can still cry. watersprout thank you for sharing that cute story.

  • watersprout

    You are both welcome. I just thought how lovely it was. Makes me want to go and empty the shelters of dogs. I do need rescuing lol

    Awwwww. So true! Our dog came from a rescue centre.

    Mummatron rescue doggies are the best!

    Ours came from the Dog's Trust. He used to be scared of tissue boxes, so we think he'd had bricks thrown at him at some point during his early life. He's got the Life of Riley now though. My son is always trying to feed him!

    Grabbing a tissue NOT from a box.

    My puppy rescued me when I visited her part of the Arizona animal shelter.

    My rescue date is Feb. 1, 2010.

    Can you imagine a world without animals ? My little pup is the best thing that has happened to me in a long time and he has been the one thing that keeps my mind open to the possibility that there really might be a God out there somewhere, one that is very different from the one i used believe in but can no longer can understand.

    nice story, me I prefer cats, my latest cat I picked from the animal rescue a year back, in fact he picked me. His name is Buddha, that's what he was named when I got him so I stayed with it. Offended a couple of jws when they found out what his name is. LOL
