Narrowing a Million Thoughts into One Thought

Our Precious Kissy …

Our Precious Camie

I woke up this morning at 5:00 am with a million thoughts in my mind.  No one things stands out … well yes, one does.  That’s the Special Pup Skip and I have become guardian angels to.  He is always in my mind.

Each morning when I wake up my prayers are that he has stayed inside his house all night, warm in his soft shavings and the soft blankets (and my over-sized sweatshirt).  When he comes out he stands the chance of getting tangled around the trees that are close by.  He stays there waiting for someone to come help him.  At night time my prayers are the very same as each morning.

Let me tell you a few things about this pup … he is a pit bull.  He is precious and doesn’t bark, growl at Skip and I.  It’s like he naturally loves us … like we naturally love him.

When he sees us come, he’ll rise up in his dog house … come out the door stretching.  Then he’ll make ‘bird sounds’ like our Camie does when she is so glad to see us after we have been gone for a while.

I will walk to him while talking … take him food that we share from our Pups’ food … chews, and water.  Special Pup (that’s my name for him because he is just that) … becomes so animated.  Happiness makes him wiggle-waggle just like our Kissy!  He will give me sugar!

My mind is on him as I sit here writing.  As soon as it is daylight … I will go to check on him … give him more food, check his water to make sure it isn’t frozen.  His owner also, puts food out for him and is gone a couple days at a time.  I don’t judge this man because what’s important is the dog.  I hope one day he will see my love for his dog … decide I should bring him home with me.  I believe … I pray … I trust.

Did I say I woke up with a million thoughts and no one stands out to me?  As I wrote … it became clear that one does stand out to me … what really is on my mind.  I just shared it with you.

My hopes are to be able to take this Precious Pup off his chain … bring him home with me … take it from there.  Like when I rescued Camie (our mixed Australian Shepherd) … I will help him to blend into our family.  He will become most important … loved, cared for like he’s never known.  This is my wish for Special Pup.  Would you all who read this … keep this in your prayers?  Prayers accomplish miracles … I believe in miracles.  My life is full of them.

How’s that for narrowing a million thoughts into … one thought?

This is exactly what is on my mind this morning when I woke up.  I know deep inside that good things will somehow work to make it possible for this big, beautiful dog to have a good life.  All the while Skip and I will give him comfort, love … be his guardian angels as long as it takes.  I pray he will become my Pup … come home to us.

  1. You are special people hun and you cannot imagine the gulf there is between your nature and my father’s who took pleasure in killing every pet I ever loved.

    Not because the animals were in some way deserving of such abuse – he treated us the same way until Social Services investigated – but because he was a walking sack of poison and something had to pay to express his murderous venom. ::(

    Now he’s dead and subject to a higher court – and I no longer need to be afraid that he might see me in the street and run me down in his penis extension. 😦

    Doesn’t stop the pain though… 😦

    Love and hugs!


      • Thanks hun! 🙂

        Pain is what makes us who we are.

        A pot without dents has hardly been used! 🙂

        I just happened to be on the receiving end of a psychopath with a hammer… 😦

        Love and huge squishy hugs!!! 🙂 ❤
