The reality is, I am the BIGGEST softy when it comes to anything dog related. The minute I read a post about an abused dog, or hear that one of our customer's dogs has passed, I lose it within SECONDS.
When I found out one of my best friend's family dogs passed away from cancer, I couldn't function properly for the entire day I was so distraught (RIP BUSTER, I MISS YOU EVERY DAY.)
So how am I able to be around so many dogs who have endured such pain and keep it together? Maybe it's because I know I have a job to do.
The minute I arrive at a rescue, I know that I'm representing IRBWMD and have a responsibility to our customers to tell the story while keeping it together.
I will be honest, there was a moment yesterday when I was at Char-Wills GSD Rescue that I briefly lost it. I think it was after Peter and I finished up that I had a brief thought of what his life was like just weeks ago before being saved.
But then I quickly snapped out of it! I couldn't be tearing up while making videos for all of you!
ANYWAY, before I actually start crying....thank you all so so much for following the story of all these dogs. The journey isn't over and some have a long road ahead of them. Thanks for your support, and you should feel proud when you're wearing your IRBWMD gear!
