Anipal Photo Hunt #16: My 2nd Job

This week's photo hunt do be about wot our jobs is aside from taking care of our hoomans, and you all duss know that be a full-time job seeing as hoomans is totally helpless without us animals. 

So to gibs you some background, if'n you read my Thanksgibbing Day Story of Me fur the contesty Minna Krebs woz hasing you will knows I woz a furry skeered puppeh with no soshulizashuns when I commed out of the shelter.  (Incidentally, I wonned the random drawing GRAND PRIZE of a donashun of $50 green papers to an animal charity of my choice - yay! I had Minna Krebs make her donashun to Cleveland Amory's Black Beauty Ranch where they rescue all kinds of abused and neglected animals so they can live there happily ever after.)  So anyways, because I woz so skeered and unsocialized I knows rite away when udder dogs feel that way and I take them unner my paw to make them feel less skeered.

Mom would take me along on adopshun day to sit with the skeered dogs.  I would calm them down and show them they had nuttin to be skeered of.  They would make grate progress with me around and evenshually get adopted.

Here I is with Billy Joe at an adopshun day.  He woz so skeered he would try to crawl into the bricks of the wall but with me there, he would lay front and center rite next to me on the blankie, let peeples pet him without cringing away and even go with me and mom fur little walkies.  All of the volunteers woz so shawked at how Billy Joe would come to life around me.  This is how I teached him to trust peeples more and he gotted adopted.  Sometimes is just takes one wot has been there to help udders overcome their fears.
