I will admit writing this post was a tough one today. At the right there is a button which reads “Find Your Buddy.”
If you click it will take you to a site which I have supported for over twenty years. It is the only place to go when I hear someone say, “I want to get a dog, cat, etc. or I need to find a home for my pet. This organization is connected to all the rescues and they help people find pets/place pets in new homes.
Let’s stop breeding animals to be our pets. There are too many pets awaiting homes. Not to mention all the animals euthanized due to lack of room and resources. Just like all the excess we have now, why are we producing more? Why not just use what we have already? Do you really need shiny and new?
One of these organizations, I found my Toby in 2001. He proved to be the best dog anyone could ask for. On the other hand JuJubi I was given from a neighbor.
I lost her just about four weeks ago.
She was a troubled dog. Troubled in the sense she never recovered from her previous trauma. She was never able to depend on anyone and thus she was hard to train. She lived to not be a problem in any way to us, for fear she would be given away again. She was really just surviving for these past ten years.
Given we had her since 2010, with the support of having another dog to train her and a loving home, she still did not fully recover. She never trusted anyone, but she did best she could with me, this last five years. Given she died so fast, and we found no reason for her not eating, no matter how crazy it may sound, she died from a broken heart. Toby passed in 2017 and every time we went for a vacation etc., we spend months building back her trust. Then, after going on a trip at thanksgiving, when we returned she gave up. Given her history, she did not want to be here. She wanted to be with her Toby. He was truly someone who never abandoned her, he was her top pack member. We humans try but never meet the mark.
This organization helps place dogs who are abandoned and they are people who are lovers of animals. If my JuJubi had not just been placed with me by a neighbor just after her trauma, I do believe she could have gotten some training before I had to train her myself.
This website is a wonderful place in the interest of animals.
As a squiggly, all said and done JuJubi was my girl. I miss her tremendously. I am missing the energy of another soul to hang with. Husbands, family, some friends are all necessary, but a pet, a buddy is a whole new level of fulfilling one’s needs. Needless to say, there is a piece of my heart missing. Like losing a family member, they cannot be replaced and I heard a line that sums it up, “I will have a little pain every day, till I die.”
If you get a rescue, you have to pay for them. It is minimal compared to a breeder, so I hope you always choose a rescued pet. Visit the button ---->.
I know you will find Your Buddy, like I did.
