Where do I turn to now?

Published 9:25am Friday, April 26, 2013

I have had him back at Landrum vet this past week and have taken him out to introduce him to people as much as possible. I haven’t met a single person who has met him that hasn’t fallen instantly in love. His friendly and loving demeanor is infectious and when this beautiful boy looks at you with the most expressionable eyes I’ve seen, you can’t help but melt.

I’m well aware that there are so many others out there like Soldier, but I promise you that this boy is super special; ask anyone who’s met him.

I love sweet Soldier with everything I have and I’ve kept my promise as has he but I’ve run out of options and places to turn.

I have turned to the Lord in prayer and now I turn to all of you. If you or anyone you know are interested in the companion of a lifetime, please contact me or anyone else who knows him and I’ll make that happen.

I think of Soldier as nothing but a great big heart looking for a body to house it and Lord knows, “a heart is a terrible thing to waste.”

Thanks for listening.
