Thirty Days of Thanks Day 2: Warmth (by Ollie)

Today my thanks goes out to warmth.

I don’t remember much about life before leaving the shelter. But I remember the floor was cold. Then I took a long ride in a van and it was warmer. Then when stepped out, the ground was cold again. Colder than the floor even. And wet. And white.

They called it snow. I didn’t like it.

Luckily I didn’t have to stay in the snow very long, and soon made it to my new home and immediately got to looking for something warm to lay on. And I found it!


But then I found a warmer spot, so decided to lay there instead.


Mom and dad quickly discovered that I need to always find the warmest spot. And I’m proud to report that I continue to have great success in finding it. Sometimes brother Balton tries to take the warm spots, and sometimes I let him share.


Other times…well…I do what I have to do to stay warm.


I try not to ever forget or take for granted how glad I am to have found my warmth, and I try to always give warmth back whenever I can.



This time of year it starts getting cold. And so this time of year, I am especially thankful to my Lucky Dog friends, and to all the people who rescue pups like me to help us all find a warm beds, blankets, and humans to cuddle up with.

Faith, Trust, & Foster Pups is a combination blog for animal welfare, humane education/positive training, recognizing the beautiful bond that exists between pets and their people, and other fun stuff. I share information about adoptable pets in the DC metro area, promote animal rescue and resources to support adopters and fosters, and share stories and lessons related to the dogs I care for. Much of my writing is for especially my "foster failure" with some specific fear-based issues. In an effort to help understand often wonderful, sometimes challenging dogs like him better, I learn to understand myself. Together, we share our stories, and walk together, leash in hand, and in building faith and trust within one another and within ourselves.
