Ever wondered what’s on the mind of your furry friend? It might actually amaze you. Yep. There is so much more to us dogs that meets the eye.
Case in point, today my companion or should say my savior otherwise known as my Mommy, took me on a morning stroll. It was another day in paradise. You know, a beautiful sunny morning while heavenly music is “playing” in the background courtesy of the neighborhood birds as we were walking down a beautiful winding trail.
To spice up the experience, we’d take our time to stop and check out the cool dogs who couldn’t help themselves from joining a sniff fest while their guardians (not to be confused owners) are smiling and enjoying this blissful moment in time. This was a glorious sight to behold.
But it was also a moment that made me stop and reflect on my life. It’s almost like I was living in a parallel universe. It was a sharp contrast to the lives of so many of my furry friends who are subjected daily to the horrors or homelessness, abandonment or worse abuse and death sentence.
Imagine the ruff life of so many of my canine friends who are still out on the streets or imprisoned in shelters. What’s worse, their voice can’t even be heard. Talk about taking animal cruelty to a whole new level.
I’m such a lucky dog and I know it because I found a fur-ever home. But I also know that grateful dogs like me are super man’s best friend.
Call me Emo (emotional) or a sentimental fool, but honestly the thought of so many of my furry friends living in a black hole, scared, lonely and hungry with no one to care for them makes me lay awake at night with the same little voice telling me that I’ve got to do something about it.
So, I decided to become a dog-vocate and be a voice for the voiceless until no dog is left behind. You guessed it. It’s also the name of my campaign ‘Fur-ever Friends: until no dog is left behind,’ which is organized by a great nonprofit organization Onespiritoneworld.org.
Here’s a little secret:
Wanna become a better person? Wanna know what real love is all about? How about an opportunity to enrich your life in ways that humans can’t? Then you owe it to yourself to run to your nearest shelter to adopt what is sure to be your best friend ever! Remember, rescue dogs are best breed. I should know because I’m a rescue myself.
Finally, here’s a novel idea for you that might actually transform your life. Be the change that you want to see. Adopt. Don’t Shop!!
So, while you chew on this I will chew on my bone. Paw-fect, right?
Until we meet again my pawmazing friends!
