"He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."
I love hearing about adoptions and rescues. I dislike going to vets or shelters and see the "last chance" animals. I wish I owned a big farm because I hate seeing an animal left behind. I'm pretty sure I got this from my mother. Growing up I don't know what it was but she seemed to "find" a lot of animals that needed homes. She would say I found this cat in a box on the side of the road. Or that dog in the back of some stores. Or at least that's what she would telll my father. But he never seemed to mind. There most recent rescue was a little cat named Bella. Her right rear paw was stuck in wire fence. I have no idea hoe my mother found her but she did. Some kind of rescue radar? But she did and brought Bella to the vet. Now she is my fathers favorite 3 legged friend. Even over the other 3 cats and 2 dogs. Bella can do no wrong. He prob loves her more than us 3 boys.
Well Millie is not as reserved as when I got her,I don't think she was an inside dog,dog barked on the TV and she ran all over the house looking for him.She will howl when she hears a siren,but hasn't barked once since I got her,she loves to play catch and you will too whether u want to or not,she will go so far as to drop the ball in your lap,been working on her snagging it in the air.Thursday she gets spayed something tells me the ride home is gonna be pretty quiet
