I Once Was Lost

Uploaded by: WigglesMom

Saturday November 10, 2012

London, OH (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: Good Boy was once lost & all alone, blind & one his own during the winter of 2010-2011. Scooped up from where he was frozen in fright, midway between a flooding river & a busy highway in central Kentucky, this terribly frightened blind Australian Cattle Dog (aka ACD or blue heeler) had been held for the maximum length of time before euthanasia. Late one night, 3 months after my beloved Wiggles Blue Heeler had returned to Heaven after sharing more than 12 years with me, I saw this blind lad's photo on Facebook & drove 200 miles the next day to bring him home to west-central Ohio. 21 months later, Good Boy has learned that Indian summer sunshine can kiss his face, a gentle breeze can caress his magnificent coat, & he can fear no more, because he has his own seeing eye person and mommy to care for him! I named him Good Boy because I wanted him to always hear what a Good Boy he is! Blindness must never be a death sentence, and Good Boy bears witness in this photo that his ears and nose, fur coat and feet, can enjoy weather as he "sees" it with his heart!

Dear WU approvers, Do pet photos ever show up in the most current photo galleries? I posted this and the other one of Good Boy in order to paint a heart picture of how much a blind soul can enjoy life and weather. This photo could never have happened if this special dog's blindness had been a death sentence. Good Boy and I celebrate life every day by spending some of it walking and drinking in the abundant blessings of temperature, wind, sunshine, clouds, different times of day or night -- and I am made a beter person for witnessing his embrace of life!

About WigglesMom


Born & raised in SW Ohio; have lived in west-central Ohio's Amish & Mennonite wonderful farm country for 27 years. Drove semi trucks for 27 years & have been a property rights / natural resources researcher since 1999. Had *Raffles/Skowronek Arabian horses for 34 years. Enjoyed beyond words the 12+ years that Wiggles Blue Heeler (Aust. cattle dog) graced my life; thankful to God & Wiggles for orchestrating the miracles that led to my rescuing "Good Boy," another blue heeler (pictured) in early March 2011. The greatest blessing in life is getting to live it! I've always loved to take pictures & seem to have a natural eye for it. Thanks to Weather Underground for this chance to display some of my photos!
