    I rescued a human today.

    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.
    Jackie, Champ, and Buddy

    This is so sweet. So sweet. And so true.

    Every dog I have saved has also saved me in some way:

    Angus saved me from wallowing in grief over losing Crash.

    Simon saved me from Angus.

    Jules saved the part of my heart that wondered if there were still good people in the world. Jules showed me there were.

    And now, there is Belv. What he will save is still unclear, but I know there is a reason that I felt compelled to help him. Someday I will look back and see how he helped me too.


    Connie and "The Boys":
    Angus, Yellow Lab, CGC, RE, CD
    Simon, d.b.a. Flat Coated Retriever, CGC, RE, CD

    Gone ahead, but forever in my heart:
    Crash, Pit Bull x Rottweiler x Golden Retriever

    As I have just recently joined the world of Rescue, this poem speaks to me as well. I know how much I adore my gang, but had no idea how much all of these wayward souls would touch me. I have been involved in quite a few intakes as well as a few placements so far. It is amazing, I find myself thinking about them often. It just makes me give my gang an extra snuggle each night.
