This past week there are several dogs and their owners in my audience that is normal during our performances. There is a huge Mastiff on one side of the patio and a gorgeous Rottweiler on the other. My dog, Jackson, is in the middle. I am thinking, "Oh my gosh! We are going to have a dogfight." All the dogs' tails are wagging a hundred miles a minute and all these dogs want to do is sniff each other to get some quality playtime.
It has to be the love and 24/7 companionship that gives these dogs such non-territorial attitudes. I just have never seen dogs all love each other so quickly and easily. I love it! Also the Mastiff is NOT on a leash. The guy earlier told me, "This dog will NOT move unless I tell it to," and he was right.
A note is handed to me from the Rott's owner it says, " Hello my name is Chico, I was rescued from this wonderful man at the TravelCenters of America TA trucks top five years ago now, where my owners had dropped me off, homeless. But I came here today to hear you and the band. On the road we heard you all are real good. Oh, yeah, can you play, just for me, that song by CW McCall, Convoy? Hey, thanks, love your show," Chico.
Of course we played the song and on break I was able to meet Chico and his Daddy. Jackson and Chico started kissing each other. The owner of this gentle dog now rescues these animals and has found homes for hundreds of these dogs with other truckers. If any of you have or know of one of these animals that needs a good home, please contact Tim Davies at 217-316-1515 and he will get your dog a good life.
He does not care if the dog is registered or not, or male or female, he will help your dog. Here is another trucker who travels the country saving one dog at a time with his own adoption program. Thanks to all of you, and hope to see you at one of my shows soon. My website is: http://www.susannespirit.com
