This is BHRR's Concert's first journal entry of her my wish for her 'warmth and love from caring people', a celebration of the life that she is going to be living for as long as we can give it to her in quality!
We started off on our adventure with a stop by Timmie's, the same one that I used to bring BHRR's Atlas too! THEY were totally enamored with her! Who wouldn't be!! She was given her own plain donut and a partial BLT – sans the tomato and lots of bacon!
I told BHRR's Concert that I would carry her with my car and arms if need be to ensure that she did not walk any further than she had too and I would put on as many kms in my car as I could to cover as much distance I could to give her as much time of being able to have life and adventures and experiences and enjoyment!
She had a lovely visit tonight at the Bird's nest(THANK YOU!) as did I on Thursday night. We were there for a few hours and she was a bit worried at first for she is deeply already bonded to me(something said to me as well by the Bird's nest) and thought I may be leaving her. The longer we were there, the better and more relaxed she got. She was initially worried about a hat that one of the Bird's was wearing and definitely is not comfortable when it gets dark but better and better and she began to ask for love and that melted my heart.
She stopped worrying about rejection and trusted. A dog that one or more people treated with such disrespect and disregard for life, gave her trust out to others. What a gift!
She drank lots, had some chicken and Fromm snack and other treats and snoozed and was cuddled and had lots of photos taken and two videos taken and was loved and surrounded by warmth and kindness(this home leant her a very special collar and we just know that it shall bring her lots of positive energy!) and is also her early special Santa home and I promised BHRR's Concert that I will fill up her days and nights as I can and as she is able with such amazing experiences and enjoyment as Thursday night was.
It was a very special time for me. BHRR's Concert has given me a gift and I know that for each person that touches her and is touched by her; she shall given them something very special in gifts/lessons too. Many gifts/lessons of forgiveness and trust and respect she shall pass along. Gifts/lessons of bravery and dignity and kindness she shall also pass along yet; she possesses an aura and she is going to give each person something extra special. For me, it was a continuation of what BHRR's Snowball began to teach me many years ago; to stop and smell the roses and it goes from there.
For all my friends and family that have wanted to have that cup of tea, lunch, dinner, just get together for a few hours; and my schedule has been slammed(it always is as it also is for many of them!), BHRR's Concert has taught me that there is no better time than now! No one knows what tomorrow may bring and how much we all may have left and so, BHRR's Concert, THANK you for that….thank you for helping me to re-balance my life and to take enjoyment even more from dear friends and family!!!
What a lovely time she had, truly and I am just so grateful for the hours that the Bird's nest gave to her for in that time, what they really gave to BHRR's Concert is another glimpse into a world that can be so wonderful. Your home gave her memories of kindness and gentle touches of true caring.
