Like thousands of other people yesterday, I read this post about a sweet dog named Duke and his last day on earth. And because it didn't make me sad enough to read it once, I read it two more times and then watched his rescue video as well.
I keep thinking about the fact that if Duke wouldn't have been rescued three years ago, this last wonderful day for him would have never happened. Instead he would have spent his final days in a shelter like so many other dogs have to do.
And thoughts like this eat at me. They make me feel helpless and just sad.
But at the same time I realize that simply feeling bad for all of these dogs won't do anything to help them. So rather than writing some sappy post about why I'm a dog lover or why we need to save the dogs (those posts will come later) I figured instead I'd share a few pics of some very eligible Bowchelors. (Get it? It was supposed to be like bachelors.) It sounded better in my head.
Anyway, look at all of these adorable pups who are just waiting to be your best friend!
I'm Jesse and I'm a Windy City gal in Chicago.
I'm sassy Stacy and I'm in Dallas!
Ryder the Husker pup in Omaha!
I'm Nina and I live in Denver!
Baby Bear from Kansas City with the white mark on his chest just like Harlow!
And good ol' red Rusty the Vizsla in Utah.
Someday I'm going to start the Harlow Foundation and I'll have a big old farm full of rescues. In the meantime, I guess I'll just have to settle for posting their beautiful photos right here.
Love your dogs. We may not always understand them, but they understand us more than we'll ever really know.
