Many of you know that back in March, I found two homeless dogs, Poppy and Foxxie. Road Trip Home Animal Rescue agreed to get these two dogs needed medical care and transport them to a rescue in Maine for the dogs to find their forever homes.
What you don't know was that Lucas played a huge part in my decision to take them home.
Dogs in Lucas' space had always freaked him out, except for Kayla our Kelpie. In short, other dogs made Lucas nervous and uneasy.
On the day I found Poppy and Foxxie, on my friend's agility field, Lucas never had a negative reaction and was extremely relaxed around them.
I had a conversation with Lucas on the field and told him, "it is up to you if we bring them home and try to help them. Just let me know and I will listen to you".
Although I don't believe he could understand every word I was saying, I do believe he understood my intent, and what I was asking of him. That is how we communicated, and that was why were soul mates.
I can't explain why, or how, I knew he wanted me to save them.
Even when I loaded these strange dogs into the car, he had no reaction other than being extremely calm and Lucas was always protective of the car. He did everything he could to let me know he wanted "US" to save them.
I didn't want the Fosters jumping on Lucas and risk making his fragile body worse. I didn't let them "hang out" per say, but when they crossed paths, Lucas was calm and relaxed.
Lucas was good like that. ALWAYS exceeding my expectations.
I truly believed that he understood what was going on and knew the importance of what we were doing for these fosters.
