I was walking to rehearsal yesterday and I saw these three words on a bumper sticker in the shape of a paw:
Since Don and I have been together, all of our dogs have been rescues. I believe in that so strongly. And each time we have brought a dog into our home that needed to be rescued, that needed to feel safe and loved and cared for, that needed to know that he could trust us to never abandon him, never give him away, and never give up on him, we have ended up being the ones rescued. We have been the ones that felt loved unconditionally. We have been the ones lavished with love and attention and devotion. We have been the ones who felt safe.
They are our teachers. They are angels here on earth. They are pure love.
Rescue a dog or cat. Give them a home. It is one of the most rewarding things you can do. And you, too, will be rescued.
