We didn't travel very far before we made our first and only stop. The nephew unloaded us and walked us into a noisy place with lots of other dogs. Everyone was barking and carrying on. Lucky and I were placed in kennels with cement floors. That was the last time we saw our owner's nephew.
Like our owner, Lucky and I were getting on in years. Lots of people came and went. Some stopped to say hello. Most just walked on by. Then the man who took me for my walks told me that the shelter needed our kennels to make room for other dogs. So Lucky and I were placed on the shelter's euthanasia list.
I started to fret. I was several years younger than Lucky and I had always looked to him for comfort and support. Now we were separated and our chance of ever seeing each other again was fading away just as our home had. My heart was broken. Lucky and I were going to die.
The next day the shelter staff started taking the dogs for their final walks one by one. I hoped Lucky would walk by my kennel so I could give him a goodbye wag. When the man got to my kennel, he looked at my card and said I had a last resort tag. Soon another man came to pick me up. The shelter walker hooked my leash on and took me to the front to meet my rescuer. I couldn't believe my eyes. My heart leaped with joy. There stood Lucky. We were together again.
Lucky has since crossed the rainbow bridge with me at his side. I live in a foster home now with a foster brother and sister. I often think of my owner, Lucky and the shelter. So many of the other dogs there never made it to the front room.
I am continuing to age and I need to see the vet more often these days. So today, I am asking if you will consider being my sponsor. My rescue has a variety of sponsor options to choose from. If you can't sponsor me, that is okay but please share my plea so that someone will. Thank you for considering the needs of a senior death row survivor.
All My Love,
