Me throwing bread pieces and her eating them in one bite. The Big Man went back to the house and got us dog food. She was eating dog food till a vehicle stopped and she ran off. I know I couldn't catch her, if she had puppies with the storm coming they would freeze to death. I cried all the way home - thinking she would not survive the blizzard.
On Christmas day I went out twice to try to find her - I prayed each time for God to warp his hand around her and keep her warm and safe.
I returned to work Wednesday. I looked for her before and after work - I went to bed Wednesday night thinking she had died in the Blizzard.
On Thursday morning as I was pulling out of my drive way, I thought to myself, If I don't find her this morning she is probably dead.
Guess who was sitting at the end of my road - Chrissy.
She stopped when I called her name - for a moment her ears perked up. I had food in my car. She ate all of it on the side of the road while I petted her head. My neighbors driving by. I am sure they are thinking I am crazy for standing in freezing weather feeding a stray dog.
For those of you who do not know, I am married to one of the best men in the world. I called him and he brought me more dog food. Chrissy followed me to the end of the road (me in heels and dressed slacks) to an abandoned house - where I can feed her off the road.
She eats and lets me pet her. Still no puppies to be seen.
So tonight, on my way home, I got called back to the hospital. I called the Big Man and he took food to the abandoned house so that Chrissy could find it.
Guess What? Chrissy was waiting on dinner - The Big Man was able to pet her while she ate.
What is next?
I am not sure how this will end - Chrissy is an awesome Mom, she has braved the cold and her fears to feed her babies. She has graciously taken what food I have to offer. Her eyes occassionally shine when you talk to her -
Tomorrow - The Big Man and I are going to search around the abandon house for puppies.For now, praying that God continues to keep Chrissy warm and safe. I can keep her feed.
Please pray with me - No animal should be hungry, scared and cold.
