Reading the posts on dogs thrown away, others that have taken in the throw aways, etc.
inspired me to yet another little story, sorry guys,

CAST AWAY, TREASURE FOUND

I was your cast away, remember me, the pup you no longer had time for because i grew up.
Im the cast away, the one tossed aside when the new baby came.
Im the cast away, i was no longer wanted because i was no longer a cute little pup.
I was a cast away, because i became sick and you didnt want to bother anymore.
I was cast aside when your new boyfriend came around and i bit him after he slapped you and gave you that black eye.
I was cast aside, because you did not want to take time to potty train me, or teach me right from wrong. After all, the time that you would have spent on those things, took you away from your poker game, hockey game or your free time.
After all, what does it matter? It meant nothing to you that i loved you even when you beat me with that belt. I loved you when you starved me, because you didnt want to go out and buy food for me. I loved you even when you beat me so bad, that i spent 2 wks in the animal hospital hooked up to machines, tubes and had stitches and burn marks over all my body.
I loved you when you called me useless, and i loved you when you told the vet to send me to the bridge for no other reason than the fact that you no longer wanted the responsibilty for me.
Even after all that i want to thank you because you did me a great service. When you decided to cast me away, i found what true love was all about. I found a new human parent who brought me back to health with a gentle and loving hand. I parent who taught me what love was really all about and that not all humans were heartless. After all, your cold ruthless ways could not be helped because i found out that in order to love me, you would have needed to love yourself first and you obviously couldnt.

A new day dawned, the sun rise was beautiful!
You my new parent came into rescue me! You wrapped me up in your arms and although i was covered in burns, bruises and other evidence of abuse, i felt safe and loved for the first time in my life. You took me home and lavished me with love. You fed me and played with me, you protected me and allowed me to protect you and the rest of our human family.
You took me for walks, bought me new toys, you made sure that i had all my shots, and that i always had care if i became sick.

You are a hero to me! You are my angel, even though i hear you tell everyone that i am your guardian angel. Would you expect anything else but my undying love, for all the things that you have done for me? You are my hero did you know that? I will always adore you and all that you have ever done for me. You are my Treasure, you restored my trust in humans!

YOU looked so hopeless the first time that i saw you laying there in your cage, battered, bruised and broken. You did not trust anyone, but i new that some where under all that tough, nasty little attitude lay the heart of a angel. All you needed was to have someone show you how to bring it out. You were my treasure, more precious than gold or diamonds or silver. You are more precious than anything that mankind could ever put a dollar sign on.You are a priceless treasure that can never be replaced. I am so lucky to have you come into my life!

Treasure does not ahve to come covered in gold, silver, diamonds or other precious stones. True treasure is found deep within ones heart. Ture treasure is the gift of being able to hand down to future generations, the ability to love and be loved, to look beyond a physical being and see within until you can see and feel the heart beat. Real treasure lies within those who show a gentle and loveing hand, always loving, trusting, and never looking for parades, banners or a pat on the back.
REal treasure, is not always wrapped in a gorgeous package. Some of the greatest treasures come disguised in mud, bandages and matted up fur. When you peel back all of those layers, you will find, a gentle and loving animal who is more than willing to forget the hurt and pain they have suffered and they show their gratitude with a wagging tail or a gentle lick on the hand.

i wish they did. there is so much i could add to this.
When you look into the eyes of dogs in shelters etc. There is so much there in their eyes. It drives me mad. When you look into thier eyes, you can see hopelessness, sorrow, abandonment and more. You can see bewilderment and wonder. Its almost like they are saying, :What did i do? I gave my family my love, i gave them my all. I gave them every fibre of myself and im here, why? What makes it worse is that some of them actually look like they are sitting there staring at the door and each time that someone comes you can almost hear them saying 'Is that you momma, is that you daddy, are you here to take me back home?"

for quite a while when we first brought the shepster here, he would ALWAYS kind of frantically look around when we went outside, look to every car in the drive, look, look, look...looking for his old mom to to come for him (we know it was a woman who abandoned him at the shelter in ohio, when a new man came into her life who didn't like shep). we rescued him at thanksgiving-time of last year, on his last day, he was going to be our first foster...but that didn't work out, and he moved in for good. his dry brittle coat and flaky skin are now gone, his eyes are bright, he loves everyone, he's a "push-button" dog who minds way better than the pb's (think there's a little rottie in there somewhere), he is a dear, dear, boy. and he doesn't look for his old mom anymore. ever. 'cause he knows he's home.
