it is funny how quiet the end of the day becomes. this morning i was rushing to get the floors done before everyone arrived. a quick call from CAC re a dog to go down in less than an hour, so a quick trip to chilliwack to see if he would fit here. what a great dog, one of those middle aged, big black labs with hearts the size of manhattan, a good, sensible brain in his head, and a soft nature; mans best friend at his finest. not really old or sick or injured enough for here. his lameness i think was an old hip injury with muscle wasting that got worse being confined in a kennel. but not an acute injury and easily managed with some pain meds which trina had on hand. i left him there, his euth was cancelled, this is one of those great dogs if someone knows someone who is great too and wants a friend. his name is rocky. i hope someone adopts him, and if they run out of space again, trina can call and i will take him. but the really great news is the people who came out here to help today, also helped the chilliwack dogs...some went out to chilliwack and transported five of the dogs down to vancouver shelter to give chilliwack some much needed room. now that is animal rescue in it's glowing light. staff from 2 different shelters, chilliwack in need and vas there to help and everyday people willing to work together to get those dogs to a place that had space to shelter them. that was the best thing i have seen in a long while. thank you, the people here, trina and vas, way to go everyone!
the trees got stacked and the chickens got a good cleaning, and the food got sorted, the fields got scooped, the horses were groomed and spritely's leg was hosed and moses had a wonderous end of life feast with people who cared. it was a good day, full to the brim with kindness. as the darkness falls and the dogs quietly sleep in their beds, their hearts are content with living another good day. and so am i. and maybe moses will perk up for awhile, i hope so, he is greatly loved.
a blessing on everyone who came thru our gates today and made the world so much better for so very many, both the saints and the chilliwack dogs who needed some help too. it is a good world.
