Rescue Of The Week: Willy Pi PiA. Boyea
It was a typical horse show day for me, and I was just going along my way. I went out to get some lunch when I saw a lady walking a cute dachshund. When I asked, she said that the dog was from a rescue in the area. I never knew there was a rescue around here, but I was curious so I walked in to the rescue to see if the dachshund was up for adoption. Unfortunately, she was not, but I was still curious about the other dogs that they had. I went into the dog room not knowing what I would find.
Immediately, I saw him. A white westie, with hardly any fur, skinny, and tiny. When our eyes met I knew I had to take him home with me. I asked to take him out and see him, and the lady agreed. The workers at the shelter said he was not good with dogs, potty trained, or even good with people because he didn’t trust them.
I went back to the horse show to think about it, and while I was waiting Icouldn’t get him out of my mind! I went back early to adopt him. I told them that I was there for Willy Pi Pi, and asked if he was still here. They didn’t know so I went up to the room with them to check. My heart broke when he was not in his cage, because I thought I had lost him. I started crying, and then a guy came over and told me that Willy Pi Pi was just on a walk and that when he came back he was all mine! I cried even more after hearing that, because I knew he was the one.
It’s been about a year now since I found my best friend. He is the best dog in the world, he’s great with people, kids, dogs, and is even a therapy dog because he was child tested and passed. He even wakes me up at night when my blood sugar is low. I never knew what I was walking into that day, but fate was there for us to find each other. He’s the best thing that has ever happened to me.
