Both my sisters chose the medical profession as a career. One decided animal science as the preferred application for her talents. In reflection, definitely think she chose the optimum. Animals warn you before they bite and they do not psychosomatic reality.
This one morning awoke knowing I needed to visit the youngest sibling and peek at the lost and found of course! But she had a heavy case load and couldn’t break from the sterility bus , her schedule was jam packed. "Why didn’t I call before hand?" knew better then popping in, yet, the pull to visit was incredibly strong. “Maybe today I would find a Maine Coon cat again”. Presently was childless and “pet-less”, a state unfamiliar. Well, no cat personalities sparked my interest with lots of kittens screaming for attention; “couldn’t adopt a kitten with my schedule, need too much attention in the beginning”. So I rounded the corner towards the barking dogs.
WOW, so many dogs!! A tech must have seen the look on my face and commented; “Many have lost their jobs, homes and having a large dog was no longer in their budget an of course the one’s who think puppies are cute till they grow up.” The contrast left me speechless, witnessing animal abandonment in another sad form. At that moment I saw her. Initially thought she was a pitbull but the sign said AMERICAN BULLDOG. Didn’t think, squatted down and looked into her red rimmed eyes and stuck my finger in the cage and then she did it,...she licked me.
If I were ever to plan buying a dog, never would choose a white dog because don’t like those red rimmed eyes! Just like my husband now, in my youth never was attracted to a short shy man. Why?
- he never would have got my attention
- only an aggressor could have kept up with me
Today wouldn’t change a thing about my state in life. Wisdom over the years might have made my roots white but look at Moses. Gotta love the legacy! So back to the story, hubby said “sleep on it tonight go visit the dog again, if you find you really want her lets get her”…and the rest is history.
