Rescue Dogs Who Rescued Me

It was a gift from God; a beautiful black dog showed up one day at our home on Johns Island. I was a ten-year-old tomboy and nothing was more exciting to me than walking around the farm exploring. “Blackie”  and I bonded. She became my best-friend and constant companion.  The term “rescue dog” was not even invented but then I think back on those precious years of companionship, Blackie was one of those  rescue dogs who rescued me.It was a gift from God; a beautiful black dog showed up one day at our home on Johns Island. I was a ten-year-old tomboy and nothing was more exciting to me than walking around the farm exploring. “Blackie”  and I bonded. She became my best-friend and constant companion.  The term “rescue dog” was not even invented but then I think back on those precious years of companionship, Blackie was one of those  rescue dogs who rescued me.

She was the friend who listened and never judged me.  If I had a problem, I would walk and talk with Blackie.  She just stared at me with her big golden-brown eyes.  I just knew I my heart that she understood every word I said. Blackie was my protector.  I loved riding my bicycle to visit my Grandparents and she was right side me. On one trip down that dirt road, she jumped in front of my bike barking out-of-control.  Right in front of me was a giant snake coiled up, ready to strike.
