.~ Lost Dog, Happy Ending...Maybe~.

Dogs that need forever homes at the
Tobacco Valley Freinds of the Shelter

"Life is life's greatest gift.
Guard the life of another creature as you would your own because it is your own.
 On life's scale of values, the smallest is no less precious to the creature
 who owns it than the largest..." - Lloyd Biggle Jr.

The other day I was driving down the highway and walking smack dab in the middle of the road was this beautiful girl.  I turned around to see if I could help her. Many cars whizzed by me as I headed back to find her.  I prayed that she did not get hit.  I pulled off to the side of the road and called to her  and she came right to me.  She had 8 or 9 milkless teets hanging down.  They almost touched the ground!  Her right ear was bleeding and she seemed dazed and confused.

Oh what a gentle soul she was.

I called the police dispatch first to report that I had found her.  Then I called the Mountain VistaVet Clinic and they got a hold of Wendy Anderson who is in charge of the Friends of the Shelter.  She asked me if I could take her there and get a photo.  I did and put it up on their Facebook right away.

The happy ending to the story is the owners came for this precious dog.  Well I hope it is a happy ending.  I say that only because why was the dog wondering around in the middle of the road?  My husband thinks that perhap's she fell out of the back of truck.  I can't stop thinking about her and pray that she is safe and loved.  And her puppies too. She was so young.  I also pray that they spay her.

I am thankful to the Tobacco Valley Animal Shelter who does such a wonderful job helping the animals. If you find yourself with a few extra dollars, I encourage you to donate to them.  You can do that here: Friends of the Shelter

About Me

My photo

Oh give me just one day to free my mind,to create to listen, to walk, to quiet my soul,to cool down,to carry on~ My photographs and other artworks are inspired by the wonder, simplicity and quietude of every day life. In every photograph,sketch, painting or textile piece, I hope to capture the spirit, the mood, the song of my subjects. I was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. My creative spirit awakened when I moved to Northwest Montana where there was plenty of room to roam with my camera and places to be alone with nature and its inhabitants. All my photographs are professionally printed by acclaimed Bozeman, MT artist/ photographer Rob Outlaw on archival quality fine art paper. My frames are custom built by artist Richard Moore of Wind and Snow Art Gallery in Polson, MT.
