The tale of Rooster Cogburn
Oh that adorable face! Maybe it was partly because of that adorable face that I wept as I read the story of Rooster.
Rooster was a puppy found abandoned & homeless. Cody and his wife were trying for years to have a baby. One day the three of them found each other and they became a family.
But something didn’t seem quite right about Rooster, so they took him to the vet. The news was not good. Rooster had many health problems and the saddest part about this is it sounds like all of his health problems were caused by a person. Sadly, the story of Rooster sounds like it is one of abuse. But he did get a happy ending.
Maybe its because I am getting older and more sensitive or maybe its because I have read so many stories about animal abuse. Whatever the reason, I am finding it harder to read these types of stories. But I also know that I can’t walk around with blinders on regarding animal abuse. Its real and sadly its all around us. I (we) are their voice.
This was a life needlessly cut short. I felt so moved by this story and I really felt this precious puppy, this feeling being, created by God deserved some recognition which is why I chose him for this week’s “Tuesday Tale.”
