I met a woman today who said, People give up too soon. She was talking about animal adoption and she would know being completely devoted to ‘placing’ animals. There is always somebody somewhere, she said. This is a woman who certainly doesn’t give up, and encourages others not to do that either.
The monastery has had it’s share of animals turning up looking for a home. Chester came eleven years ago, a beautiful dog, he was found wandering along the fence which bounds the property on the freeway side. There’s a lot of spaniel but there’s a lot of other in there too. What ever the mix it makes for a most beautiful long lustrous coat. I’ve always been a devoted fan.
I’m thinking of Chester this evening. He’s in the animal hospital, with his carer, suffering from heat stroke. Have a thought for him, and his person too. Our animals are close family and no mistake.
