Today is the universal birthday for all shelter dogs. Unfortunately, some dogs find themselves placed in a rescue shelter with no information available about their past, their birthdate or even their name. And yet, these sentient beings still have hope that someday they will help create a new interspecies family with the very fortunate human who chooses them.
I am fortunate to be a weekly volunteer for a canine rescue shelter in St. Louis, Missouri. Our interspecies family currently includes two adopted rescued dogs. We don’t know their actual birthday so we will celebrate it today 🙂
Today’s haiku for DOGust 1st.
