Pure Joy.....

So i have been pretty upset all day.....why you ask? Because a beautiful stray and extremely skinny boxer dog has been roaming my street. This morning as Matt was leaving for work this poor thing ran up to us and as I soon as I got good look at his ribs I ran in to get him food & water. The last thing Matt said to me before he left was "no, we can not take in a 5th animal or pay for another animals vet bills until we find it a home" and he is right, I can't just bring him in around my boys in case he is sick and time after time we pay as I take a stray animal to the vet to board him while I find him a home. So I go on about my day but all I can think about is this dog, I see him this afternoon laying in my yard and my heart literally broke.....................
Well tonight after I got home from JH meeting I went out to look for him, to feed him and I could not find him so I went inside and upstairs............and what did I see? But the stray dog in the yard behind me...I was OVER JOYED! So me being the crazy person I am at 9pm at night, I walked over to their house; a preacher and his family whom I only met once and knocked on their door.................They were shocked but I told them about how I like to rescue animals and how much I appreciated the kindness they showed that dog and I gave them an unopened 20 Pound of Dog Chow that I bought for my boys. I just wanted them to know that their kind deed was appreciated they were shocked that someone would go out of their way to do such a thing.

And as I walked back to my house all I thought was that doing a good deed is really rather selfish because I am sure I feel much better than they do! Thank you God for answering my prayers about that dog!!!

Oh you are awesome! Let me know if your neighbors need anything like toys, cages, etc. and I will be happy to give them some! As a boxer owner it absolutely breaks my heart when I see one that is thin and not taken care of. So from the bottom of my heart ...Thank you for your generosity!
