Sometimes I love the quiet of the evening when the dogs are peacefully at rest after a long day of playing and their diligence in protecting their home. I watch them as they appear to not have a care or worry in the world and it fills my heart with such joy. As I watch them deep in slumber, my thoughts
turn to Popcorn and the horror he knew, spending every waking moment in a small crate, forced to eat and drink his own urine and waste and the torture he endured with having his nose so brutally beaten, and my eyes well up with tears of sorrow 😞 Then sweet Rambo, who was abandoned and left to die, suffered with one of the worst skin autoimmune diseases that literally burnt his entire body, and, one more time, the tears flow 😞 Sweet Alfie with his face covered in blood blisters, zero platelets and moments from death and my heart just shatters 😩
My thoughts then drift off to the thousands of animals who this very evening are suffering with the same pangs of loneliness, sick, in pain and frightened and my heart grows heavy. I wonder what must go through their little minds as they sit and wait day in and day out for that special someone who will welcome them into their heart and home. My thoughts then sadly turn to the ones who will never again know the tenderness of a kind hand or the warmth of a loving home and, one more time, my eyes well up with tears of sorrow. Maybe tomorrow someone will come, maybe tomorrow 💔
I pray that somehow, someway, someday this human race will come to realize the wonderful gift of joy, companionship and unconditional love these animals bring to our lives and what a true blessing they are to us mere humans. Yes, most days my eyes well up with tears of sorrow and sadness for the forgotten ones and I myself wonder how, day in and day out, I continue to find the strength to do what I do.
However, on nights like tonight, with one loving glance at my content, peaceful, safe and oh so loved fur fellas, I wonder no more ❤
They are my dogs, my heart lights, my 4 legged family fur members and I love them ❤ tw, LNPB
Good night sweet angels Alley and Chauncy, mommy loves and misses you so ❤
