Meet 26th Street Puppy

March 11, 2011: A puppy hit by a car was picked up by a volunteer and brought to the Karachi Animal Hospital. We paid him a visit, and within few minutes we become absolute friends.

We need better emergency services, we need shelters, we need Govt to implement “THE PREVENTION OF CRUELTY TO ANIMALS ACT, 1890” and we need to educate ppl.

The Shy One
(By Terri Onorato)

Hidden deep within her soul
a best friend lies in wait,
as passersby all but ignore
the shy one’s frightened face.

Abused? Or was she born this way?
That’s not the issue here,
attention to her past won’t bring
the love she needs to heal.

The burning fear that clouds her eyes
reveals the painful truth,
that reaching out to trust
is something she alone can’t do.

But if instead your loving arms
reached out to her today
you’d be amazed at all the love
she yearns to give away.

If you take the time to hold
her face within your hands
and look into her frantic eyes
I think you’ll understand…

It’s not that she’s a “problem” dog
nor one who’s a lost cause,
it’s that she needs a person who
won’t see her fears as flaws.

You say you want a happy dog
who’ll love you all your days?
Right here my friend is what you want
behind the mask of pain.

You hesitate…I understand
how cautious you must be.
It’s too late now to change your mind,
she’s coming home with me.

But in her place another waits
ignored by passersby,
the shy one with a heart of gold,
a best friend in disguise.
