A Sad Story…

April 23, 2010

I have a disheartening story to tell you today, however, it is one that needs to be told.  Brian, my human companion and I had been taking a walk the other day and he told me about this pup he met at the shelter he visited.  Her name is Tokina.  Tokina had been abused and was very timid and shy, her fur still somewhat matted and her eyes drooped with sadness and fear.  She was so skittish that it took Brian nearly 30 minutes to get her to approach him.  Finally after spending some time getting acquainted, Brian took Tokina for a walk.  Most of us pups on a walk were having a great time sniffing and loving life.  Not Tokina.  She walked behind Brian, cowering.  When she stepped on a stick, she would jump and then cower.  This poor girl had been through a traumatic past and needed to learn that you humans are our friends and are here to help care for us.  Brian has plans to go back and work more with Tokina and help her regain her confidence in humans and be a good companion to a family seeking a beautiful, loving and sweet dog to become part of their life.

It amazes me why some people choose to have us, become our companion, and then forget why they got us.  We don’t always understand what we are to do or what you want.  We need you to work with us and to communicate that to us in a positive manner.  We want to please you for you are our best friends.
