Letter from the Editor: Kindred Spirits

By Leslie Moore

Letter from the Editor

One of the things I love the most about my work with Sasee is meeting and interviewing new and interesting people each month. And August is one of my favorite months, because part of our focus is usually on companion animals. I’ve written about my rescued dogs and cats – and the many blessings they’ve brought to my life. My Annie is one of those fortunate dogs who only made it out of a shelter because someone cared. Hours away from euthanasia, older and possessing a face that only a mother could love, Annie came to me as a temporary foster – only a few weeks, I was told. A few weeks turned into a few months and five years later Annie is a beloved family member. I was not as welcoming as I could’ve been at rst. I already had four dogs and one more just seemed too much. But, I’ve never meta dog as sweet as Annie, who loves everyone and has never so much as snarled at another animal. She was abused, pretty severely I believe, and came to me as a fearful, cowering dog. She’s still afraid of many things, but today my sweet Annie is a happy, adorable (to me) dog who is condent that she will be loved and cared for with kindness. She’s the only one lenow, as age and illness have taken my original pack on their final trips across the rainbow bridge. I can’t imagine how much harder these losses would’ve been without Annie’s steady comforting presence – she is truly my kindred spirit. I urge you to rescue an animal. You will never regret it and will be repaid many times over by the love and devotion of a grateful dog or cat. If you can’t rescue, then volunteer at your local shelter or rescue. And, if you can’t do either, please write a check and help those who can.

Be kind to everything that lives.
