Hey There Geogie Girl

by Nanci E. Sherman
(Ocala, Florida)

NOBODY COULD EVER SEE THE LONELINESS THERE. I SAW THE LONELINESS, THE DESPERATION THERE. IN THE HEARTWRENCHING TWIST OF THE MISSHAPEN BOTTOM JAW, THE PLEADING EXPRESSIVE INTENSISITY IN THE SOULFUL GOLDEN EYES. I KNEW THEN WITH TOTAL CERTAINTY ON THAT DESOLATE DIRT ROAD, ON THAT SPRING MORNING IN CITRA FLORIDA THAT I WOULD NOT LET HER DOWN. SO BEGAN OUR JOURNEY, GEORGIE GIRL AND ME, ONE OF PERSERVEARANCE AND DEVOTION IN SPITE OF NEARLY HOPELESS ODDS TO GIVE HER A CHANCE FOR A NEW LIFE. I WAS TOLD "THIS PIT BULL SHOULD BE EUTHANIZED" SHES PROBABLY "BETTER OFF DEAD"."THAT JAW IS BROKEN","SHE NEEDS TO BE PUT OUT OF HER MISERY." "A DOG LIKE THAT CANT BE TRUSTED." BUT I HAD TRUST IN GEORGIE, FOR I SAW HER PRECIOUS QUALITIES.IN SPITE OF HER PITIFUL CIRCUMSTANCES SHE STILL POSESSED THE INTRINSIC LIGHT OF LOVE. WILLING TO FORGIVE, THE PAST STOICALLY FORGOTTON. EACH DAY, HOPEFUL ACCEPTING. EXPECTANT,JOYFUL. STLL AS I PREPARED FOR HER STAY IN MY SMALL OCALA APARTMENT DREAD SWIRLED ABOUT ME. FEW RESCUE GROUPS CALLED BACK ALL WITH THE SAME..."IF SHES IN PAIN, MAYBE SHE SHOULD BE PUT OUT OF HER MISERY" WHAT MISERY I WONDERED HAD SUCH A LOVING SPIRIT? WITH CREDIT CARD IN HAND THE HOUR LONG WAIT IN THE VETS OFFICE WAS SPENT PRAYING AND WONDERING "HOW CAN I PAY FOR ALL THIS?" I WAS ASTONISHED TO HEAR THE VET SAY THE PIT BULLS SITUTATION WAS NOT ALL THAT DIRE. SHE YAS YOUNG, HEALTHY, BEAT UP A BIT, BUT WITH HER GREAT DISPOSITION SHE WILL MAKE A WONDERFUL PET. IN FACT, THE VET SAID SHE WOULD TAKE GEORGIE GIRL HERSELF, AND AFTER HER BROKEN JAW WOULD HAVE SURGERY SHE WOULD BE WELL...JUST PERFECT. EVEN THOUGH I KNEW SHE ALREADY WAS! AND OH WHAT A CHANGE THERE WOULD BE THE WORLD DID SEE A NEW GEORGIE GIRL!
