A few days ago, when I was at open field work in another city 200km away from Warsaw, working as off-road/trail photographer as usually- I got a call about a husky dog in desperate need that is located in MY area. Fully starved dog (just bones), having severe skin issues, bleeding and leaking mold off from skin and fur is falling off found on streets laying down- and needs immediate health attention. I'm not anymore active volunteer in my animal rescue foundation due to life changes, but my instincts of rescuing animals came back. I've responded to the animal foundation and took responsibility of picking up and transporting a husky in need.
I had to cut off from work, and ummm the issue was… I went there with my co-worker whith his car. Everything sounded perfect, that dog was in need to be transported to Warsaw by today which is good for me cause after work we are driving back to Warsaw.
Buuuut the problem was… A nice, shiny BMW car.
My co-workers beloved car, plus hes typical urban, clean type guy.
Lacoste shoes, tommy shirt etc. lol.
That already screams in my head: NO, never! He will NEVER want to transport a dog, even an ILL dog. He used to transport Arnaq once, he enough hated that her fur wires were stuck in his car, even singliest one.
But to transport a dog that is infected, dirty, has rotting skin, bleeding under belly and yellowish whities leaking out from skin? Literally a zombie dog?
That was the hardest task for me to work out, persuade him otherwise I'd feel very guilty cause that dog had perfect chance to be saved… but after whole conversation, which I think was funny it worked! I persuaded him.
Once we got that dog... I was making probably thousand excuses to calm him dog since he was all the time freaking out and regretting for agreeing for this deal. But that girl was such angel
! So friendly, cute and very, very calm despite of her condition. I feel like she on purpose sat in one position and didn't move at all - and I think it greatly helped my co-workers paranoia of "infecting" his car XD.Poor thing... My pants had blood spots after her bleeding skin under belly.
There was a moment where he had to stop suddenly and jumped out from the car, cause wanted to pee so badly and Auri (that's how I named that rescue husky dog) immediately stood, and almost jumped out of car to check if my co-worker is okay
. I was all noooo you are risking my coworkers anger by moving sooo much! But I thought what she did, it was cute...
But at the end, a big bravo for my co-worker for doing this favor and overcoming this fear. Even he started feeling sympathy for her.
After arriving, I brought her to my home to take care until people from foundation take her to rehab. She was full of life and my Dingo accepted her with love. I really love
rescuing dogs from darkness and observing how much of love they get, like giving them a chance for a good life. Honestly, on the other hand I don't like being part of dog rescues because I get attached too much or depressed... y' know, I'm really extremely sensetive human being...My Dingo invited her to play! She was very alive, but kept falling on the ground due to lacking of muscles and strenght. But she didn't give up and kept playing. I think Auri is a beautiful lady, right?
Auri has great chances for recovery to be a normal dog, though rehabilitation at foundation cost money- she has chances only through good will from kind hearted people who would be willing to donate a few bucks. She lives on donations until she will get a new home.
You can donate for Auri's recovery via Paypal (just any amount, we don't ask much, just 5$ is fine!)
Please put in title: DAROWIZNA DLA AURI
For interested people, especially who donated, I can post updates about Auri's recovery!
Other than that, recent things in my life went drastically worse and also I lost my important chance for recovery and also I caught illness where who knows how long it will take to recover (do not ask about that, I don't like sharing less happy things about my life on public) so for the most time I'll be focused on dogs and animals since they are somewhat... therapeutic for me ?...
