Saving One Dog may not change the world, but the world has surely changed for That One Dog.

He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog.
You are his life, his leader, his love.
He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart.
You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.

A Letter to Rescue . . .

"Please Help! After two long years of being on a waiting list for a dog, we have been notified by the breed rescue that, at long last, our number has come up and... WE ARE HAVING A PUPPY!!!

We must get rid of our children IMMEDIATELY because we just know how time consuming our new little puppy is going to be and it just wouldn't be fair to the children.

Since our little puppy will be arriving Monday we must place the children up for adoption this weekend! They are described as:
     One male Child--His name is Tommy, Caucasian (English/Irish mix), light blonde hair, blue eyes. Four years old. Excellent disposition. He doesn't bite. Temperment tested. Does have a problem with peeing directly into the toilet. He has had the chicken pox and is current on all his shots. Tonsils have already been removed. Tommy eats everything and is very clean, house trained and gets along with others. Does not run with scissors and with a little training he should be able to read soon.
     One female child--Her name is Lexie, Caucasian(English/irish mix), strawberry blonde hair, green eyes, quite freckled. Two years old. Can be surly at times. Non-biter, thumb sucker. Has been temperment tested but needs a little attitude adjusting occasionally. She is current on all shots still has her tonsils, is very healthy and can be affectionate. Gets along with other little girls but does not like to share her toys and therefore would do best in a one child household. She is a very quick learner and is currently working on her housetraining. Shouldn't take long at all.

We really do LOVE our children so much and want to do what's right for them. That is why we contacted a rescue group. We simply can no longer keep them. Also we are afraid they may hurt our new puppy. I hope you understand that ours is a UNIQUE situation and we have a real emergency here! They must be placed into your rescue by Sunday night at the latest or we will be forced to drop them off at the orphanage or leave them along some dark, country road. Our priority now has to be our new puppy.

Thank you for your understanding and help!"

One child came upon another child on the beach one day. 
The second child was walking along, looking down, then every few feet would bend down, pick something up out of the sand, and toss it into the ocean. 
The first child asked what kind of game this was. 
The second child replied, "I'm saving starfish." 
The first child was incredulous. "Are you kidding? There are too many!
What are you going to do? Spend all day and all night out here, tossing starfish back into the ocean? 
You'll never save them all. And anyway, in the grand scheme of life, they're just starfish. It doesn't matter if they live or die."

The second child scooped another starfish up from the sand, considered it briefly, then hurled it into the ocean. 

"It mattered to that one.
