High Coo – August 10 – Spoil Your Dog Day

Wayne has returned, unfortunately

Today is a Wednesday and every Wednesday morning I walk rescued dogs at a downtown facility in St. Louis, Missouri. I’ve been walking dogs for a year now and it is always a celebration when one of the nearly 100 dogs served here is adopted or fostered. So often this liberation from the kennel leads to a “furever” home where the dog can thrive and not need to compete with other animals for attention.

Unfortunately, there are occasions where a dog is returned after a couple of days, weeks or even months. Whatever the reason for the return, it is better that they return then stay somewhere where they and/or their companion(s) are not happy.

Wayne, a gregarious bundle of joy, is one such returnee. (See my January 13 post “Look Out World!” for more information on this beautiful boy.) It was a sad but happy reunion between us this morning. I did enjoy walking him again but hope that he gets another chance for a “furever” home soon.

Here’s today’s haiku: Spoil Your Dog Day

Unconditional

love provided here and now;

your dog is waiting
