Blockbuster Baby


(Texas)






I was with my brother celebrating his 23rd birthday. We decided to visit the local Blockbuster video store to rent a movie for the evening.

My brother had been wanting a german sheperd for several years at that point. While we were walking across the parking lot to go inside, my brother, Gene said "Oh, how cute. It's a little german sheperd puppy."

Trotting down the sidewalk with one ear up and one ear down flopping was the cutest dog I'd seen a a long time. I'd actually never seen a german sheperd so young and received quite a thrill from watching her. She was following a family walking down the sidewalk, so we thought the dog belonged to them at first.

We went about our mission of finding a movie inside the store. While we were standing in line waiting to check out, my brother had the puppy still on his mind. Not forgetting about her, he said a little prayer and thought 'Lord, if that puppy does not belong to anyone and you want me to have it, send me a sign.'

Right then some customers walked inside the video store and following close behind was the same cute little german sheperd. She got a rise out of the rest of the store. Everyone began laughing and chatting seeing this dog walk inside. Since no one else was getting her out of the store, my brother took it upon himself to haul her back outside.

Noticing there was no collar or tags and how skinny she appeared,he realized she did not belong to anyone and felt that it was doing this puppy a favor to rescue her, take her home and feed her. That was 8 years ago this coming summer. It was one of the best birthday presents my brother has ever received.

Her name is 'Teshuvah' and she is so sweet tempered and one of the best, most loving dogs I've ever known. I love her as if she were my own. She is now a new mom this week and am thrilled to be able to have one of her puppies to raise as my own.

Teshuvah

Teshuvah means 'Repentance' in Hebrew. Yes, she has blessed our family in so many ways.
