What happened today at the Nursery deserves to be shared.
My co-worker, Victoria, brought to work a darling little puppy that she discovered was neglected by someone she knew. She explained it needed a better home and it was her hope that by showing it to people here she would find a more fit parent.
While we were all cooing over this puppy, class in the Schoolhouse was about to begin and the puppy session had to end. As the hummingbird presentation was underway, one lady, in particular, seemed restless and left the classroom. I followed her outside to do some other work. As we descended the porch steps, another co-worker, Jillian, was approaching us with this puppy in her arms. As I asked to hold it, I spun around to ask the lady from class if she’d like to adopt it. Without flinching, she stated, “Yes. I saw the puppy before class and heard about it’s hardship and I haven’t been able stop thinking about her. I have been fidgeting in class since it started, so I decided to leave class to take her home. My other dogs are of a similar breed and I think they will all get along.”
You can imagine our surprise! We all walked together to the Garden Store to tell Victoria the good news and she was elated!
Here is an image of the puppy and her newly found parent. This is one of those life experiences that is not only an honor to view but to see how seamlessly situations fall into place when they are meant to be.
