Today I experienced just that. I believe in Angels in human disguise. I had to take my dog to get his nails clipped so he doesn’t slip around on my hardwood floors. He is 17 years old and just such a sweetheart! Buckaroo is his name and he is a Rottweiler, German Shepherd mix. He’s a smarty pants!
This is him with his teddy bear. He sleeps on it often. I could just squeeze him when I see this! See his nails whoa! He could be a tiger! Grrrrrrrr – I could clip his nails but I cut too far one time and I cried more than he did. I just can’t hurt my boy even if it is for a good reason. I let the vet do that and he usually doesn’t cut too far.
So we’re there today waiting to see the doc and Buckaroo knows exactly what is going on. He is pacing and keeps walking to the door to leave. Uh no buddy we gotta wait until we get your nails done. He just keeps pacing. I’m like hurry up people I have my business partner dropping by my house at 3pm and my appointment was at 2:15 and now it’s 2:35pm. I am getting annoyed and then I hear this whimpering and crying from behind the door. I wanted to cover my ears and shut my eyes and start humming na na na na na na na! I can’t take an animal in pain.
Finally at 2:50pm a man and a woman come out with a tiny mixed dog and this funny scruffy gray and white dog who was happy to be there. I said, “Is everything alright?” She said, “Oh these aren’t mine we just found them on the side of the road and the big one had wire around his neck.” I held back my tears. “Focus on the Roo” I told myself.
The doctor waved me in so I went. Buckaroo got on the lift and we got his nails clipped asap. He wanted no part of the treats; he wanted out. Thank goodness I paid in advance to skedaddle once he was done.
I go out to my car and there they are. These people who stopped and picked these two dogs up and drove immediately to the vet! These dogs had sores all over their bodies and had fleas and ticks. They paid for all the medicine, treatments and antibiotics. Wow!
I said please take my email and when you get pictures I’ll send it out to people I know and see if they can be adopted. She said they have to stay together. I said, “No problem. Let’s just make it so.” She just looked at me and said “OK.” I said, “Let’s just make it happen.” I drove home and missed my business partner. I thought, “Oh well. I was suppose to be at the vet at that time to help those doggies.” Later I thought I have a 15lb bag of dog food my girl Sweetpea won’t eat.
Here is persnickety Peas on her bed.
So I emailed this couple and said can I please give you a bag of dog food for the dogs you found? She emailed back and said, “Yes that would be great!” She said, “Call me and we can meet.” I emailed back and said, “No let me come to you. You all have done so much I want to make this easy on you. I also want to love on those babies.”
I thought to myself these people are angels. Just angels! They already have some dogs and cats that are indoors and can’t commingle with these dogs. So these babies are in a dog run and can’t be inside with their other animals. But are safe and dry with a shed to go into. Thank goodness it’s not so blazin hot out!
We would like to ask for donations of money, food, pet supplies – anything to help out. That would be awesome until we can find a permanent home for them. If you would like to donate something you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here are the babies that they have named Lily (gray and white girl) and
Sam (small golden boy) He’s no bigger than a cinder block. They are joined at the hip and cannot be separated.
This is what Lily was wearing when found and she has permanent scars on her neck from it digging in.
Lily and Sam are on the mend but the vet bills will be expensive. If anyone wants to adopt both dogs please let me know. Just call me or email me and lets get these abused animals a permanent home and get them all better so they can lead happy lives.
All in all what I know is these people are just so sweet and I want to help them in any way I can! Animals are my weakness. So in recognizing this couple as Angels I just wondered if anyone else believed in Angels here on earth too?
