Valentine’s New Year Resolution

Valentine is doing really good.  She walks like a pro with her new prosthetic, and swims like dog with her life vest on.  If she has any memories of the evil that nearly killed her she doesn’t let on. Her spirit and resolve to believe all people are good amazes us all here at Sounds of Silent Spirits Rescue.  Recently she has helped one of our new rescue Pit Bull Terrier adjust to her new life.  Valentine reassures Christmas Angel that at least some humans truly love her and won’t hurt her.  Valentine is a beautiful reminder that we can change the world with just a simple act of kindness instead of selfishness.  We like to believe that Valentine’s New Year Resolution is to remind us of that.  Happy New Year everyone.Valentine and Christmas Angel                                                                                                                     Left to right: Christmas Angel, Chuck and Valentine.

Do I Go Home Today?CIMG0563

By Sandi Thompson ~

My family brought me home
cradled in their arms.
They cuddled me and smiled at me,
and said I was full of charm.

They played with me and laughed with me,
they showered me with toys.
I sure do love my family
especially the girls and boys.

The children loved to feed me, CIMG0218
they gave me special treats.
They even let me sleep with them
all snuggled in the sheets.

I used to go for walks,
often several times a day.
They even fought to hold my leash,
I’m very proud to say.

These are things I’ll never forget
a cherished memory.
I now live in a shelter
without my family.

They used to laugh and praise me
when I played with that old shoe.
But I didn’t know the difference
between the old ones and the new.

The kids and I would grab a rag
for hours we would tug.
So I thought I did the right thing
when I chewed the bathroom rug.  CIMG0343

They said that I was out of control,
and would have to live outside.
This I did not understand
although I tried and tried.

The walks stopped, one by one;
they said they hadn’t time.
I wish that I could change things,
I wish I knew my crime.  image005

My life became so lonely,
in the back yard on a chain.
I barked and barked all day long
to keep from going insane.

So they brought me to the shelter
but were embarrassed to say why.
They said I caused an allergy,
and then, kissed me goodbye.

If I’d only had some classes,
as a little pup
I wouldn’t have been so hard to handle
when I was all grown up.

“You only have one day left,” face
I heard the worker say.
Does this mean a second chance?
Do I go home today?

Thanks to all the Sponsors of Valentine’s Day!

Pioneer Park in Lucerne Valley

Valentine has been too busy enjoying her new leg to notice, but she is making the news again.

Check out Valentine in the Sun Newspaper today.  Thank you so much Michel Nolan, you are a wonderful supporter of our organization.

Justice for all abused animals

Although we are all outraged by the out come of Valentine’s Criminal and circumstances around the decision, LET us focus on getting the laws changed so the court system can do a better job when they catch animal Abusers. So I am asking you to think about helping us get the laws changed for convicting them properly. We need Folks that have some expertise to help us. I have been given so wonderful sources on Attorneys. But if you can volunteer and help guide us as we have never done anything like this we need you knowledge. And you don’t even have to live near by. Let’s focus our outrage to the top instead of the bottom. Below is Governor Brown’s info as well as all other government representatives. This is where we need to focus our energy.

NO MORE LIMPING. Come and see her Saturday June 9th and share the love of Valentine.
