Something Called Blessings

Scooter Counts His Blessings

Hi, Everyone!  My name is Scooter, and I’m hanging out at a place called Barb’s Dog Rescue. Being here is better than any place I’ve ever been, but I hear Mama Barb talking about my “forever home” and how wonderful it will be when I have my very own people to love and take care of.

You should come to the Rescue and meet Mama Barb. She and her helpers are our guardian angels. They rescued us from the streets and constantly show us what love feels like. We get baths, shots and medicine to keep us healthy, warm, cozy beds to sleep in, lots of friends to play with, and all the food and water we need to grow strong. They say life can get better than this…but I don’t know how.

Some days, we are visited by other people who just want to hold and play with us. I’m on to this and do my best to be the first one to get their attention. I have to be really fast because there are so many of us who want and need this attention. You can come out to see us any day between 2 and 4 p.m. You’ll know how grateful we are when you see our tails wagging!

The best part of my day is feeding time. There are so many of us here at Barb’s, and we eat a lot, twice a day, every day. Lately, I see people bring in big bags of dog food that have been donated and are being stored at the Why Not store in Why, AZ. There is a limit on how much food can be brought in each car, so next time you are on your way to where we live, please pick up a bag or two and bring it to the Rescue.

I am told these things are called blessings. I’m just a puppy, but I know all of these blessings wouldn’t be possible without the nice people who help Barb be able to take care of us. If you can’t volunteer, she says there are lots of ways you can help. You can go to Barb’s website and donate something called money. While there, be sure to buy a 2021 Barb’s Dog Rescue Calendar. You can list Barb’s Dog Rescue as the charity you want to support when you buy stuff from something called Amazon (Prime/Smile). I hear Barb remind all her visitors that the Rescue is a U.S. 501c3 organization, and all donations are fully tax deductible. Hmm. I bet a tax is something like a flea or a tick. Yuck.

Thanks for letting me tell you about Barb’s Dog Rescue. As this thing called Thanksgiving gets closer, I need to tell you how thankful I am for people who open their hearts and their homes to dogs like me. They are the greatest blessing we can receive. We have so much love to give and can’t wait to meet you.
