Leroy's Life

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 did'nt want her to know that I had'nt been walked today.
Sometimes the shelter keepers get too busy and I did'nt want her to think poorly of them.
As she read my kennel card I hoped that she would'nt 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 check 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 tobe saved.
At least I could save one. I rescued a human today.

WOW we are so happy to have been picked for our diary of the day!!! "Thanks" What an honor!!!! Leroy's story has a great ending. I volunteered at the Humane Society two years ago. There was Leroy in a cage in the back. The day before a man found him on the streets. Well to make a long story short I took Leroy home with me that day!!! We had to foster him for the 10 day wait period to see if his old owners would be looking for him!! We put ads in the local papers with calls, but none for him!!! The Humane Society did'nt even have one phone call with the old owners looking for him!!! He is a great dog, I just could not believe no one would even look for him!!! You know that saying - Another man's trash is another one's TREASURE!!! Leroy is our little treasure!!!!
