Not An Angel

The young pup and the older dog lay on shaded sweet grass watching the reunions. Sometimes a man, sometimes a woman, sometimes a whole family would approach the Rainbow Bridge, be greeted by their loving pets and cross the bridge together. The young pup playfully nipped at the older one. "Look! Something wonderful is happening!" The older dog stood up and barked, "Quickly. Get over to the path."

"But that's not my owner," whined the pup, but he did as he was told. Thousands of pets surged forward as a figure in white walked on the path toward the bridge.

As the glowing figure passed each animal, that animal bowed it's head in love and respect. The figure finally approached the bridge, and was met by a menagerie of joyous animals. Together, they all walked over the bridge and disappeared.

The young pup was still in awe. "Was that an angel?" he whispered.

"No, son." The older dog replied. "That was more than an angel. That was a person who worked for an animal rescue group."

There are many ways to work rescue without actually adopting a rescue or housing one. Many people cannot do this, and that is certainly understandable. If you talk to one person in your whole lifetime and persuade them to spay or neuter their dog [the breed is of no importance here], you are eliminating the possibility of one puppy that may be put to sleep because there is no home for it! Don't be shy, speak up to those that you know that let their dogs run or who have litters because they never got around to spaying and neutering their dogs.
