My appreciation for animal control officers and other rescuers.

I am very depressed tonight. I always get depressed like this when I see a dog out wandering and I can't get it to come with me. I often wonder if animal control officers and others who rescue animals have some super human power, because I certainly do not have what it takes to get a wandering dog to come with me.

I live off a main freeway, but when i come home from visiting my family I take the back roads. It cuts my drive in about in half. It's a country road - no lights, everyone drives at least 55. When I'm just about home there is a series of turns. The first is 30 mph, the second 20 mph and the last is 10 mph. I came around that 10 mph turn last tonight and standing in the road, staring up at me was a gorgeous brown and tan dog. Luckily the car behind me was a good distance away, so when I stopped I didn't get rear ended. Ten o'clock at night and here I am pulling over off the road to try and catch a dog. I don't know what I was thinking, and Astrea was definitely in the car wondering what the hell I was doing. Another car stopped and we tried for a minute, but it's just such and unsafe spot and the dog did not want to be caught. He kept running back and forth across the road and darting away. He ducked under a fence at one point, so I'm trying to convince myself that he is running through the fields with the cows, making his way safely home. But I just can't stop thinking about him. Makes me sad.




The rest of the drive home had me thinking about Japan. Thinking about the people who have traveled there and are going against advice and risking their health to help the animals that have been displaced since the earth quake and tsunami. I've been following Japan Earthquake Animal Rescue and Support (JEARS) and it just makes me so happy and sad at the same time to see the pictures of the animals that they've rescued.
