I was visiting Mariah's Promise website today, which is a site you should visit if you love your Pit Bulls and Bully breeds. What Mariah's Promise does for them is really amazing! While there I found this. It warmed my heart and I had to share. Enjoy!
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.
