Special's Dawn of Light

Adopt 09 Contest

Special Dawn was rescued, but did not come from a rescue. She was kept in a dark basement, neglected, and possibly abused (in my opinion neglect IS abuse). She was very skinny, and had mange down her face. My daughter became aware of this, and actually took Special from her home. She did not have permission, but no one cared enough to come after her. She was 4 months old, and did not even have a name. We named her Special Dawn because she is truly “special” and it was the “dawning” of a new life for her, hence, Special Dawn. It was a new dawn in our lives, too!

Her eyesight is poor, and we don’t know if that is due to the neglected mange, or if it would have been that way naturally. Arthritis has taken it’s toll on her now, and that is so sad. She used to jump and dance, and make us laugh constantly. She was our clown! Now she is happy to cuddle, and cuddle, and cuddle.

We can never repay her for the fun and love she has brought into our lives. She IS a special dawn, our Special Dawn.

We're not sure where this should go, but it SHOULD be read (PLEASE):

T’was the night before Christmas and all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse
The stockings where hung by the chimney with care
In the hopes that St Nicholas soon would be there

But at the North Pole sudden changes arose
All down to Rudolph and his ruby red nose
Clipboard in hand, a breed expert arrived
He motioned to Santa saying," please step aside".

A smooth haired coat and a muscular build
A broad deep chest our Rudolph did yield
The breed expert's pen, created pages of ticks
Then he suddenly called out "good lord, we've been tricked!"

"This creatures no donkey and clearly no horse!
I know these things! I've attended the course!"
Look at my clipboard the boxes are full!
It's very obvious to me: Rudolph is a pit bull!

Out with the measuring sticks, he explained to Santa the law
And he measured poor Rudolph from shoulder to floor.
As the spectacle continued Santa said with a sigh
He's a reindeer you fool! Why must he die?

"The law is the law" the expert said standing tall,
Then picked up his mobile and made a quick call
The sound of sirens filled the peaceful night air
and Rudolph removed who knew where?

Days turned too weeks and confused and alone
Rudolph pined, for the place he called home
As the first snow started falling Rudolph gave up the fight
And he took his last breath on a cold winters night

You may think this is funny, if a little untrue.
But how would you like it, if it happened to you?
If your dog was taken because of its look...
Because it ticked enough boxes in some silly book?

Regardless of parentage it doesn't matter what breed
If it ticks enough boxes then it's a done deed
So humor me here and pretend this is true
Think how you would feel if it happened to you.

Cuddle your hounds while you have them close by
For some spend this Christmas, waiting to die.
Now back to the story, it doesn't end there
One more short verse I need to share

Santa fetched Rudolph's body and cried for his friend
And swore to himself, this would not be the end
And I heard him exclaim as he drove out of sight
"The law is wrong, please help us to fight!"

I was really afraid I would miss mentioning someone, and sure enough, I did. Please forgive me
Annie Ward
for not listing you with the others that helped The Christmas Miracle happen. I sent your rosettes, yet somehow did not list you. I am very sorry.

In my continuing list of "Love Tags" I have included these great pups. PLEASE read all my "Love Tag" diaries because there are some truly amazing pups in them!!

Caelen because he shared his house and home with 4 pups, and was a gracious host. THEN took 2 of them in as sisters! This is an amazing family.

Catori because he, too, had to share his house and home with 6 pups with no warning! And now calls 2 of them sisters.

Vegas because he went straight into "daddy" mode with the 6-pack with no hesitation. His whole family is fantastic.

Rosie had to give her mama up all day long to help rescue the Kansas 6-pack. The whole family was involved.

I believe this is the full list (2 entries) of the pups involved in December 2006, an almost magical time. Since I can't get any sappier I will close, and start my tags.


I was Luv Tagged or The Christmas Miracle of 2006

I have been tagged by one of the sweetest faces on dogster, Shiloh. I want to give you special thanks Shiloh because you have prompted me to write something that has been on my mind for a few months. It may take me a little while (and a new supply of rosettes!) to get these out, but I have been dying to tell every single person involved in the Kansas 6-pack rescue how I felt about them. I was afraid I would miss someone so I cheated. I went over the first 59 pages of posts. This took me through December 2006, and what I like to call The Christmas Miracle of 2006! I am sure there were more pups ?behind the scene? that I never knew about, but this is everyone that posted in that time. Thank you pups for showing me there ARE miracles in this world, and dogsters prove that every day. These are in no order, as each and every person and pup were important in this miraculous rescue. These are the pups I will be tagging. Please forgive me if I take too long at this. If I could make links I certainly would.

All of these pups worked so hard right smack at Christmas time to save the first 6 pups listed. The pups are now beautiful, socialized, well loved and well taken care of. All because of you guys, and the blessings of Dogster HQ.
