Thinking back to the day you got your shelter or rescue dog, have you ever asked yourself, “who was the one really rescued?” There are many postings on Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest stressing it is the new owner who’s actually rescued– by the love of a dog. How do you feel about that?
This proves a picture is worth a thousand words, “She was a rescue.” Thank you, Paul Hoth, for this wonderful depiction of a day in the life of a rescuer. Truly, we are the blessed ones, unconditionally loved by our dogs.
Who Rescued Who?
Here is a poem from the farm, “Just when I think my heart cannot possibly hold anymore joy… feel anymore love, I get a look like this from you. You are so happy to simply be playing in the fields with me. I often wonder… who rescued who?’ Thank you, Kasey Kensington, for all the hours you put in caring for rescue pups.
A Dog’s Love Changes Everything
“I gave you my house when you were alone. When I walk thru the door it now feels like a home. Tail wagging and waiting our bond quickly grew. Such unconditional love… who rescued who?” Thank you, Kimberly, and I agree, fostering makes a difference.
A Dog’s Love Is Unconditional
“The love of a dog is unconditional. Being unconditional, that’s a dog. Humans are very conditional. Dogs, accepting. You can look horrible, but a dog will look at you like you’re the most beautiful human being ever, because what he’s looking at is your feelings. Dogs have integrity. But many humans measure integrity materially, with money. That’s how disconnected and unbalanced we have become,” cautions Cesar Milan.
Choose To Be Happy
“Dogs, for a reason that can only be described as divine, have the ability to forgive, let go of the of past, and live each day joyously. It’s something the rest of us strive for.” Thank you, Jennifer Skiff
My Rescue Dog Rescued Me!
“Some people say I rescued my dog, but I think it might be the other way around.” Thank you, Dayle’s Dogs for taking care of rescue dogs.
There you go!
Of course, these are just a taste of what’s out there in cyberland. Take a look around and remember to thank those you know who impact the lives of rescues in a positive way.
