Ever so often, a tiny little fur ball falls into your pathway, and his giant heart and spirit changes you forever. He teaches you things, all kinds of things!
My friends & I found this little fellow on the side of the road while coming back from Belur. We saw him dragging his hind legs, and there was NO hesitation in picking him up and putting him in the car. He was going to come back to Bangalore with us. And he did! A couple glasses of milk, and this mere 30 day old pup found his voice and courage; going so far as growling at dogs 10 times his size! All he wanted was cuddles, and love love love.
We knew he was special from the moment we saw him, but we also knew he would need special care. There are plenty of people who helped us figure out what the best thing for the little giant was, and we are deeply grateful.
So, we called The Voice of Stray Dogs, this most amazing NGO based in Bangalore, India, to take him in, and boy oh boy did they! Giving him up was so so hard, and i still cry sometimes when i think of him. But after watching this video of Obama, those tears are that of joy!
As far as Obama is concerned, what did he touch us? No matter how bad your situation might seem, a little faith and a whole lot of love goes a long way! You're only as big as your spirit - & this fella is a GIANT! Sometimes, doing the right thing can feel like the absolute worst thing, but staying strong through it will make you glad you did! Even people who won't accept they like dogs will cave and give pups EPIC cuddles!
and finally, puppies are the best!!!
So don't hesitate to be a little inconvenienced by a sweet animal that you know needs you. Because really, a little goes a long way!
