We were asked to take in three Pekes. The owner had to move to her son's home and he would not let her bring her dogs. It's so sad when this happens and we are asked to help.
Baby Girl and Rocky are scared-- they've been with their owner all their lives and have just left her. This is a very hard part of rescue, to watch an owner sobbing as she turns over her dogs to us when she has no other options. It breaks my heart.
I used this "poem" last year, but thought it fit here. It's about the heart of rescue:
"I promise I will take your unwanted animals. I will heal their wounds, their diseases, their broken
bones. I will give them the medical attention they need and deserve. I will nurture their starvation, and give them a warm place to sleep. I will spay and neuter them, vaccinate them against the diseases that can harm them. I will treat them and honor them. I will buy them toys, blankets, balls, and teach them to play. I will speak softly to them. I will try to teach them not to fear, not to cry, and not to hate. I will whisper sweet, kind, gentle words into their ears, while gently trying to stroke away their fear, their pain, and their scars. I will face their emotional scars and give them time to overcome them. I will socialize them, potty train them, teach them to be obedient, show them dignity, and hold their paws, and stroke their ears. And if they have endured too much, I will walk them over the Rainbow Bridge. Most of all I will teach them Love. To be loved, to be cared for, to have a home. Rescue is caring for the unwanted, giving them a chance. Thank you all who help us in this mission. You are the best!!

But, something happened that has never happened before. Rudy is a little touchy about sharing his bed. But, Festus saw that half of it wasn't being used, so he climbed in with Rudy and Rudy let him!! Little, sweet miracles happen and this is one of them. I just had to share with you!! Love those sweet pups!
