Following my previous post, this is the end of Lewes' story and mine, of our short story together. Boots is his actual name ( perhaps cuz he had super cute white socks). His owner finally picked him up just a couple of hours ago. She had until 8pm of tonight, since I brought him in at Animal Care and Control on Saturday. Cutting it really close, don't you think so?! He had been lost for over a month, she said.
Am I happy? A tiny part of my soul is. I'm happy that Lewes/Boots is ok and healthy and will go back to his home. A very selfish part is instead extremely said ( also skeptical about the entire story). He had already conquered my heart, I was ready to adopt him and Part of me was already picturing our life together.
Anyway... I want to share with you pics and videos of some of the cuties who are still waiting at the shelter. Suki, Bella, Samuel, Anne... they're all waiting for a mom, a dad, a family, a place they can all home. But they can't wait forever. If no one adopts they will be euthanized.
I rarely share my personal opinions but this topic is really close to my ❤️. Please consider adopting before buying a pet. In my modest opinion life shouldn't be bought. I wonder how would people feel if they sold human babies. You get to choose between Caucasian, Asian, Native American and so on... I see no differences. We're all the same, animal non-animal, living beings with the same right to life.
4 legs, one heart and a soul. And many times their heart is much bigger and capable of unconditional love than our human ones.
As I'm writing this, I can't help but thinking about yoga teachings and the Sanskrit word NAMASTE. NAMA means bow, AS means I, TE means you. Therefore I bow to you to the divine in you. Or as one of my first yoga teachers used to say: the divinity in me acknowledges and greets the divinity in you 🙏✨✨✨
