I Rescued a Human Today

I read this over at Lucy's Human and totally had to share...I know that somehow Soxy rescued us!

I Rescued A Human Today
Author: Janine Allen CPDT

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.

Proposal Turned In...Relaxing Weekend

On Thursday afternoon I submitted a draft of my proposal to my Dissertation Director. Now I am just waiting for feedback from him.

Thursday night our neighbors came over and we listened to the Jimmy Buffett concert on XM while drinking margaritas and eating cheeseburgers. It was a lot of fun.

Friday we relaxed...Saturday we did some running...Sunday we visited D's parents and grandmother. It is always nice to visit them and Grandmother loves to see Soxy.

All in all a good weekend...long weekend.

Today, however, sucks...I am on Day 2 of my migraine and the pills don't seem to be working today. AUGH!!
