The story of "Our Dog Petey":
Petey is a rescued shelter survivor. He is my gift from God. The vet thought he was 1 - 1 1/2. We (my Husband and I) think he is closer to a year. He acts more like a puppy. We don't know his past but you can bet his future is bright! He has found his forever Mama & Papa! The story goes like this, for over 3 years I searched for a Pitty (Pit Bull because I have only ever had great experiences with them). I had looked at hundreds! Then I read that sometimes you don't find the dog they find you!
So I prayed that the Lord would bless me with a dog. Not to big with a sweet personality and disposition that I would someday be able to train as a therapy dog, so that we could go and visit veterans who are recovering from fighting for my freedom!
That is a big order but not for God! I said the prayer on Monday and on Thursday as I looked for a dog on facebook and animal rescue websites there he was! He said, "Mama come rescue me." My hubby was out of town on business, so I sent him the email with the picture of Petey and told him of the prayer and that God had answered it.
We were at at the shelter at 7am. I had my nose against the glass door. At 7:30 the first employee arrived. She said we don't open till 11:00. I responded, I know there is a dog who needs me. I showed her the picture I printed of him. She knew him instantly. Said he had been there 2 weeks and no one had even noticed what a jewel he was. She went to look for him and when she came back she said, he was gone Then at 8:30, Bob came. I shouted, "Pit Pit Hurray!" He was not gone or rescued, he was at the vet getting neutered.
Bob said, "Listen I will get the adoption paperwork, you fill it out come back tomorrow at 10:30 go through an interview and processing and you can be on your way home by 11:30 with him! You are first in line he is yours!"
The pictures are of Petey as a Holstein Cow and the first picture I saw of him!
