Caring About Puppies and People

Caring About Puppies and People

     Although our present situation makes it unlikely that we’d decide to get a dog, my wife still has fond memories of the two dogs she once had in her younger years. They loved her and she loved them. But just because our circumstances may prevent us from getting a dog of our own, that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy being around them when that is possible.

     The other day being around puppies was entirely possible. We’d already planned to go into Boston and have lunch at our favorite Irish Pub since the weather was expected to be sunny and mild, unlike the day before or after when rain showers would have made it most unpleasant to be out and about in our electric wheelchairs.

     That particular day for our date happened to be a Wednesday, and this summer that meant it was Wag Wednesday, and there would be puppies at City Hall Plaza, which just happens to be right across the street from where we’d be having lunch.

     What is Wag Wednesday? That is when Shultz’ Guest House, a non profit that is dedicated to rescuing and arranging adoption for lost, homeless, and abandoned dogs from Southern states, brings puppies to City Hall Plaza for people to see and pet and maybe consider adopting. They know most people who come to spend time with the dogs won’t actually adopt one, but they’ll for sure enjoy it and will likely tell others about it (which, as you may have noticed, is what I'm doing right now!).

     The woman who started Shultz’s Guest House about 10 years ago obviously cares about abandoned dogs, and she knows what a bond can form between dogs and those who adopt them. She started small, but now the guest house is located on a 200 acre site in Dedham, Mass, run by volunteers who love dogs and are glad to help care for them and introduce them to families who want to adopt a dog. If you'd like to know more about Shulz' Guest House, visit their website:

     Dogs make for such wonderful pets. They give kids and adults a lot of fun and comfort, and they also help their owners learn to care about and do what it takes in order to care for them. One woman took her love for dogs and turned it into what is now a nonprofit organization that rescues dogs and gives them a place with acres of woods, fields, and ponds, and helps those dogs find loving families to adopt them.

     Helping others is what we all should be doing. And we should be doing it to the very best that we are able to. What is it that you care about, and that you have abilities to do? Isn’t it time that you got to doing it? I hope you will. Let’s not put off doing what we can do to make life better for others. Doing so can make life better for others and for ourselves as well.
