TO BE KILLED – 8/20/2019
. “He was my North, my South, my East and West, my working week and my Sunday rest, my noon, my midnight, my talk, my song; I thought that love would last forever: I was wrong.” -- W. H. Auden
Her owner died. It was that simple. And in that moment, she lost everything she had ever known, and everything she had loved and lived for. Affectionate, gentle, well behaved & sweet, this middle aged lady had known the joys of being loved, of being cherished, & of being an integral part of a family. When there were fireworks or other loud, scary noises, her parent would hold her close, cuddle her and whisper in her ear “don’t worry, honey, it will be alright” and calm her fears. When people would come to the home & she didn’t know them, she might try to flee & hide, but after a bit, & when she got to know them, she welcomed them with open paws & would play exuberantly. She liked to show off her commands, she loved to play with ropes & bones, and she adored playing in her back yard. Life was beautiful. Life WAS sweet.
PLEASE take in Cheetah & give her back her smile. Yes, she is heartbroken, & yes she is sad & confused. But in the hands of an EXPERIENCED #foster or #adopter who can give her a calm, quiet, structured adult only home, she will be the big, sweet, silly & loving dog she has always been.
Won’t you help her out? Please hurry ...help beautiful, big hearted Cheetah.
