Letter from a rescued greyhound
Dear human family,
I would just like stop and time the time to say thank you for letting me into your lives.
You accepted me into your family and I want you to know that I will be forever grateful and I promise that I’ll love you for all my life.
Before I met you I had never slept in a comfortable bed, I didn’t know what a couch was and I definitely didn’t know what it meant to be loved. You changed my life forever when you picked me up that day.
I want to apologise for getting a little too excited and jumping on you when you come home. I’m not used to having a family to call my own and sometimes I worry that when you leave you won’t come back.
Sorry if I don’t know how to act around other dogs and animals, especially small ones. I was trained to chase, and I was never really given the chance to socialise with the other dogs.
I may be a little clingy and sometimes I get anxious when I’m alone. But it’s just because I never want to lose you and this new life that I can now call my own.
If my zoomies wreck your floors, I’m also sorry for that. It’s just my nature to go a little crazy when I get excited!
Thank you for the times you left food on the counter. I know it was there just for me, even though you pretended that it wasn’t.
I try not to leave my hairs everywhere but sometimes they do escape and attach themselves to your couch, so I guess I’m also sorry for that, even though it’s not really my fault.
And I swear that time the pillow spontaneously exploded had nothing to do with me!
I’ll never forget that you saved me and I really hope you can see it when you look into my eyes. When you cuddle me and give me pats I finally feel like I belong somewhere and it truly is best feeling in the world. So hold me a little tighter, play with me a little longer, because to the world you may be just one person, but to me, you are the world.
With love furrever,
Your rescued greyhound xx
