Forever Home…

30 05 2011

I’m not sure if this blog will have anything to do with those two words, I just like them, and I just discovered them used together.  It turns out there is a whole tribe of people on this planet dedicated to saving dogs.  HOW FRIGGIN COOL IS THAT!???

Ok ok my country hick rural Alaskan boy roots are showing here but really?  Really?  people can make a career out of saving dogs and not have to be super smart vets?  DANG it.  Where were they at the job fair we didn’t have at my don’t blink little town back in the ‘80s???

The good news is this.  It’s real simple.

Are you bipolar?


Do you love dogs?



This is not a test question or option.  This is a requirement.  Period. NO exceptions.

Forever HOME…

Do you know what this means?

A home that a rescued dog goes to, forever.  Wow.  Let’s just take in the significance of that.  Imagine you are a dog.  Abandoned.  Hungry alone and tired, or locked up in a pound, and ya ain’t pretty, lovable, out going or XYZ enough for a family to fall in love with.  And guess what? The clock is ticking.  Option A) they take you into a room, and you take a permanent nap.

Obtion B) a human comes along and takes you to a sanctuary until a forever family shows up. Or you can live your life well cared for until you cross what they call the rainbow bridge.

If you ever get to a place called Angels Rest, I guarantee, your energy field and perspective of what good humans can do, will forever change.

Ok, I’m going to cry now.  Yes I have a huge heart for dogs.  They were my first language, best buddies, and they are non verbal.  The more time I learn from being bipolar, the more I learn how verbosity is definitely a phase or part of the cycle, but I wouldn’t call it the most productive, serene, or enjoyable.  In wordy times I need to be on constant guard because of social interaction.  Our cultures ability to think, much less act or be completely unaware of the box is limited.  I’m convinced because of my free roaming successful organic bipolar self supporting lifestyle, that even if society were able to some how entice me into a box, I would find it extremely entertaining, and enjoy the opportunity for solitude and serenity.  It is the benefit of allowing oneself to learn how to be successfully bipolar.  How to create solo renewal time, how to dance with people, and not become trauma, drama, or discarded.  It’s tricky, yet it can be successful over time.

Anyway, back to dogs.  THEY GET IT!  They are non verbal, love, and touch.  PERIOD.  They have personality needs wants desires, and are great conversationalists and teachers in the non verbal world.

I salute the mission, of the Best Friends Animal Sanctuary,

“that every dog can find a forever home”

I pray that one day every bipolar person, can succeed dancing in their own mind and life, in a healthy cycle of thriving with their numerous gifts, talents, and awareness.
