"Tattoo is my best friend and my shadow."
This Monday marks one month since I adopted Tattoo from Stray Rescue. Can't imagine my home without him. He loves all people. He reacts to nothing. He sadly cowers when he hears someone's gum pop in their mouth or when someone lifts even the softest of toys in the wrong direction over his head. God help me if I ever met who hurt him and left these scars. Tattoo is my best friend and my shadow. If I move a foot, he moves with me. He was at Stray Rescue for years and returned three times due to the ignorance of humans. But strangely, I thank these ignorant humans for without them I wouldn't have found Tattoo. If you've never volunteered at a shelter, consider it. Walk a dog. Run with a dog. Hike with a dog. The benefits are mutual. My life will forever be changed for the better because of Tattoo. Each and every night I tell him he is safe, he has no worries, he is home and then corny as it may seem, I sing these Elton John lyrics to him because they SOOOO apply, "Yours are the sweetest eyes I've ever seen. I hope you don't mind. I hope you don't mind that I put down in words. How wonderful life is while you're in the world." Thank you Stray Rescue for bringing Tattoo into my world.
