“Happiness is itself a kind of gratitude.”
~Joseph Wood Krutch
I hope everybody is having a wonderful, fabulous week! It’s been a good one here in The Dungeon, but busy. So busy! :purplebat
This week, I AM HAPPY that I was in the right place at the right time. Just yesterday, as I was leaving for an appointment, there was a little white dog in the middle of the road. And it was a busy section of town, too (highway nearby, gas stations & truck stops, major traffic). So of course I jumped out of the car & raced to its rescue. Thankfully, a couple other people were trying to do the same, & two other women were actually holding on to two other dogs at one of the gas stations. They (the dogs) were all together—four total.
At first, I didn’t know what was going on. Then I started to think one of the dogs kinda looked familiar. I said, “Roscoe? & the little white dog’s head came up. Ah-ha! I knew these dogs! I knew where they lived! Texted the gal I thought they belonged to (who is a dog rescuer, which is why she has so many of the little darlings; all different colors & breeds & sizes LOL) & she freaked! Turns out, they’d all been in their outdoor pen, but one of them must be an escape artist & let the whole brood out & taken them on a Grand Adventure. (I’ve got one of those, too, & have been there/done that, so I could sympathize with her mini panic attack.) Well, once I knew where they’d wandered away from, I scooped them all up, put them all in the car, & drove them home. And they loved it! They were so cute, looking out the windows, the little white one sitting on the middle console like a queen.
So that was my very good deed for the day! My neighbor was so happy to have them back, & so relieved none of them had gotten hurt. (The fact that none of them got hit or killed really is a miracle, let me tell you.) She must have hugged me & said thank you about a dozen times. Which is exactly what I’d have done if somebody rescued my babies! And just like the day I scooped my amazing Pekoe Boo (a.k.a Little Mr. Interstate) off the side of I-80, I feel extremely blessed to have been in the right place at the right time. Because no one else who was helping to catch & hang on to those dogs would have had a clue where they belonged or what to do with them. And I’m very grateful I did, or I may have had to bring them all home with me!
I AM HAPPY—& very, very excited!—that tomorrow is Talk Like a Pirate Day! You know what that means…oodles of swashbuckling (hopefully scruvy-free) fun here in The Dungeon all week long! Well, okay, there may be a stray day when I lower the Jolly Roger, but otherwise…all week long!
