Arrival Story:
Three months after I put my 14yr old dobe Sasha to sleep, I took a quick spin on Petfinder.com and Taz was at a shelter up the street from where I worked. On my lunch hour I went up to the Shelter to see him. He had been used as Pit-Fighting Bait. I signed the paperwork right then and picked him up over the weekend.

Taz was taken from a dog fighting ring, where he had been used as bait for nine months. It took us a good six months to prove to him he was safe and secure forever and ever.

The grief that consumes me illustrates what it's like to drown.


My heart is breaking

Of all the things I am blessed with,
you are the only one I pine for.
Of all the things I possess,
you, by far, are most valuable.

The best day of my life was the day
I found you.


Before I was a Dog Mom

Before I was a dog Mom:
I made and ate hot meals unmolested.
I had unstained, unfurred clothes.
I had quiet conversations on the phone,
even if the doorbell rang.

Before I was a dog Mom:
I slept as late as I wanted
And never worried about how late I got to bed
or if I could get into my bed.

Before I was a dog Mom:
I cleaned my house every day.
I never tripped over toys, stuffies, chewies
Or invited the neighbor's dog over to play.

Before I was a dog Mom:
I didn't worry if my plants, cleansers, plastic bags,
toilet paper, soap or deodorant
were poisonous or dangerous.

Before I was a dog Mom:
I had never been peed on
Pooped on
Drooled on
Chewed on
Or pinched by dog teeth.

Before I was a dog Mom:
I had complete control of
My thoughts,
My body and mind.
I slept all night without sharing
the covers or pillow.

Before I was a dog Mom:
I never looked into big, soulful eyes and cried.
I never felt my heart break into a million pieces
when I couldn't stop a hurt.
I never knew something so furry and four-legged
could affect my heart so deeply.

Before I was a dog Mom:
I had never held a sleeping dog
just because I couldn't put it down.
I had never gotten up in the middle of the night
every 10 minutes to make sure all was well.
I didn't know how warm it feels inside
to feed a hungry dog
I didn't know that something so small
could make me feel so important.

Before I was a dog Mom:
I had never known the warmth,
the joy,
the love,
the heartache,
the wonderment
or the satisfaction of being
A dog Mom
