My New Job...

21 posts in this topic

I am so happy that I have found my calling!!! I have recently been approved to volunteer for the chihuahua and small dog rescue organization in the Denver area.

As you all may or may not know, I am a HUGE animal lover, dogs in particular.

I am going to start with home visits to foster parents and people that want to adopt. I really want to foster dogs myself, nurture the little dogs that need love and medical treatment, so I will have to work on that with my husband.

I just wanted to share the exciting news.

Jennifer,

 

I am so so happy for you! This does sound like a perfect fit for you. I know you will do a fantastic job. I think it will make you feel better in more ways than one.

Big Congratulations from me to you on this most exciting news--ruff-ruff!

 

xoxo emmie

PS Promise you'll wear your o2 as you travel around the mile high city so you can stay healthy enough to keep doing this, ok?

Hi Jennifer,

 

That sounds tremendous! There is nothing better for our health than doing what we love. Volunteering for small dog rescue sounds delightful.

 

It may not be possible to turn a mate into a dog-lover, but perhaps you'll get enough cuddles and kisses at work so that you don't have to have them at home. In any event, I'm sure it will be interesting and rewarding for you!


Warm Hugs,

Hi Jen,

I'm so happy for you! That's great and I'm sure it will make you feel great too!

Just remember not to push it and if you are getting worn out to take a step back.

Great news, Jen. It is so important to find ways to keep yourself involved in something, to stimulate your mind and keep your emotional well being fully charged. All the more lucky to find something so perfectly suited to your personality.


Warm wishes,

Jefa

YAY Jen! I excited for you. There's nothing better then helping out with animals rescues . The dogs are so appriciative. It's like they really know how lucky they are. I was a foster mommy for 2 pitbulls in San Diego and have since adopted the last one I fostered. He is sooo loyal and loving. Your going to love your new job! Hope your man caves in. ;)


Take care and stay warm,

That sounds just wonderfull Jen! :) I've started to wonder, what will I be able to do when I grow up.. I wanted to be a pilot, but because of migrain, linearic scleroderma, vitiligo, scoliosis and raynaud's phenomenon that's out of question.. Police officer is my dream number one at the moment, but it depends about how things will turn out. Hopefully good :)

 

But congratulations for you! Part of me wants to belive that we'll all be quided to the jobs that are ment for us if we just listen the inner sound in us.. Your story made that feeling stronger :)

Jennifer, are you going to be working full time at this new job? I was wondering who you were going to have with your own dogs while you were away everyday. If its just a few hours daily to get you out and it helps your self asteem or makes you feel like you are contributing to your newest endevors together then that is awesome. Your hubby would be a saint to let you bring more dogs into your lives. They are alot of work. Enjoy them while you have the energy to do so. Keep on moving. Every little bit helps. Sheryl


Strength and Warmth,

Sheryl

Hi Jen~

 

You can say I am a HUGE animal person. Not only do I have Buster the pit/boxer mix, but I also have Kia (Heinz 57) and Kaden (Siberian Husky) and also Sebastian (cat) all of them spoiled rotten and they sleep with with all of us on our beds.....(maybe you could say we're crazy) but were very happy and crazy :D hee hee hee.

Thank you everyone!!! I meant to send that post to Michelle to her private email. I am what you would call premium brain dead right now.

 

This volunteer job is definitely not full time or even part time. I will do home visits as needed, and just in my area. I have one scheduled and that's it. Also, if I cannot do it for some reaon there are many other volunteers that can do it.

 

I would never leave my dogs alone all day even if it meant helping other dogs. I am way too attached. :) If I end up fostering, I'll get to nurture the cute little dog along with mine. yay!

 

Thanks everyone for being happy for me.

Jen

Jen, I thought you didn't have any dogs. So my prior message makes no sense at all. :( I didn't realize you were trying to talk hubby into fostering more dogs, down the road. I thought you were working on the first dog, which is often the toughest sell of all. After that, it's downhill all the way. <LOL>

What a perfect job for you!!!!!!

 

I bet the job and those dogs are going to be better for you than you will be for them! It's going to be just what you need emotionally which, as you know, always improves the physical part.

 

Have fun.

 

Big Hugs,

Janey

Jennifer, wasn't your old call name puppies1234 or something like that on the old forum? I guess I have heard you talk about 2 of your dogs quite abit on this forum. Some things I retain and others forget it. One neighbor and ourselves are the only 2 families around here that don't have dogs or any animals. We do love all our birds though. We have bird houses, feeders, and humming bird feeders and wood duck boxes in our yard. I enjoy taking pictures of the different birds and wild life around our house. Wild turkeys and Geese (yuck) we have those also. Sheryl

Sheryl

I am a bird person, too, Sheryl, as you can see by the bird on my head! I have been planning to upload some birdy pictures into the gallery one of these days. There are at least a couple of kitty cats in there.


Warm wishes,

jefa, I wish I knew how to send pictures and crop them and enhance them like others do. I have never taken the time to learn all the programs offered to me with this computer. I get flustrated trying to do things with the pictures. Sometimes I can figure out what I did that worked and then the next time it doesn't work the same way. Oh well, I can't learn everthing all at once. One step at a time. Sheryl


Strength and Warmth,

Sheryl
