DAUGHTER AND SON
like silky summer clouds
or frolicking waves.
We adapt to the challenges
of love year by year.
You take my hand and
we slow dance on the rug in the living room.
Sunlight warms our souls
while moonlight covers us with dreams.
Our young lovers embrace only in the past.
Take my hand…walk with me…
into this brave new world.
HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY
My last post, “Reprieve From Death on New Year’s Eve” on January 2 was about my son rescuing a dachshund from being euthanized. The dog had extensive burns of unknown origin on his lower stomach, leg and tail. As part of the services of Dachshund Rescue of Houston (DRofH) he was treated at a clinic and then placed in a foster home.
Kip has now healed and is ready for adoption! I thought my readers, especially those dachshund lovers, might want to see a positive update. May Kip find a forever home soon. Dachshund Rescue of Houston and their generous volunteers do a great job of saving this breed. Kudos to them and all the other organizations that care about animals. Several of my readers commented that they have rescue dogs. Images below are from the DRofH website.
“Transport him today or he will be euthanized,” the caller said.
The call came urgently on New Year’s Eve. As a volunteer with the Dachshund Rescue of Houston my son went immediately to pick up this abandoned dachshund. Despite ugly burns on his leg and lower belly the dog jumped eagerly into his rescuer’s arms. He was taken to a vet clinic that works with DRofH caring for dogs like this. Amazingly he seemed happy and healthy other than his burns and was thankfully heart worm negative. He will cared for at the clinic. When he is well enough he go to a foster home until he is adopted.
My son has two rescue dachshunds of his own, Neo and Zuul, and has fostered several through DRofH. The organization does a great job of saving them and finding good homes for them and hosts events to promote adoption.
I do not know how this adorable guy got those awful burns or what other trauma he has experienced and really would rather not know, but I do know that my son has given him a chance. Someone gave his dogs a chance to find their way to him.. He is just giving back. For that I am very proud of him.
This little guy has a long road ahead of him, but I am glad that my son was able to help him on his journey to his forever home. May this dachshund heal and find his forever home in 2015!
Seldom do I reblog a post but this one was too much fun not to share – a Christmas quiz. Fasab faithfully and weekly posts quizzes, puns, facts and commentaries. Check out his blog for a chuckle, groan or an agreement!
