Archie on Christmas

 

Today I was looking through our Christmas pictures and discovered this sweet picture of Archie which was taken on Christmas morning.  He made me laugh for he was the first one up and under the tree.

 

I started thinking about last Christmas and at that time Archie was not in our lives.  We were not even considering getting another family pet for we already had three great dogs and a cat.

 

It is amazing how things happen and how our lives change and are impacted by many wonderful things.  For us this happened with Archie.  He was found wandering our neighborhood on one of the worst snow days last January 2014.  No collar, afraid to allow anyone to get very close, super thin and limping really bad. 

 

After hours of work and persuasion I was able to get him into the warmth and safety of our garage.

 

Here we are almost a year later and he is now a big part of our family.

 

Last Christmas I have no idea where he was but this year I can truly say that Archie got his wish.  A furever loving home for Christmas.

 

Rescued animals are the best.  Open your heart and home.

Oh Judith I was a really big dog really bad. I have to remember they needs lots of care and a good back yard fence and I don't think we are ready for that.

Judith,

There are so many animals out there that need love, attention and a home, I can't see why anyone would want to go buy one at a pet store.  Your story hits home with my two rescue animals.

Hope you had a Merry Christmas and best wishes for a prosperous New Year.

Judith-What a wonderful thing you did for Archie. Rescued animals I believe know how lucky they are and are extra loving. This past July it was 2 yrs since I rescued a kitty I named Shadow after my 18 yr old kitty had died in March. Best decision I ever made, She has given me so much love and happiness.

Good evening Sharon Lee .. we were the lucky ones to have found Archie.  Your kitty named Shadow is so lucky to have you.  I agree ... they are extra loving.  Have a great evening.
